WWII German Cemetery in Caira, near Cassino, Italy (35mm Kodak Tri-X 400 in Finol)

WWII German Cemetery in Caira, near Cassino, Italy (35mm Kodak Tri-X 400 in Finol)

World War II German Cemetery in Caira, a small town near Cassino, Italy.

Testing Kodak Tri-X 400 film in Moersch Finol developer.

Shot with a Konica Hexar AF 35mm film camera.
Exposed EI 240.
Developed in Moersch Finol 1+75, 5.30 minutes at 28°C, first minute constant agitation then 2 inversions every 20 seconds.
Fixed in Moersch ATS alcaline fixer to preserve the stain, 6.30 minutes, first minute constant agitation then 10 seconds inversions at beginning of each minute
Washed in flowing tap water for 8 minutes.

Scanned to true optical 2900dpi with a custom macro setup, then resized.

No sharpening or noise reduction applied.
Original file available.

High developer temperature takes a toll on grain size here, but decent performance nevertheless.

Decent performance in Finol, but for Tri-X at EI 240 I definitely prefer CG 512 / Rollei RLS.
