YO !!! What a GIFT !! A Kind Gent sent me this all the way from Denmark as he read on a Forum that I was so 'sad' that I had no more 1993 120 NP22 left and all my 35mm ORWO had long gone! Although dated 1992 I tested both NP22 and NP20 in 2 CANON FTbn cameras and it came out well in my 'Home-Made FX-4 Formula 1+1 ' -- I gave both short lengths 7.45 mins @ 20°C and hoped -- result was NP22 'softer' so needs more Dev Time but NP20 just right and I gave both films Half a Stop more exposure, Both needed a full stop more exposure to a Sunpak auto 36FD electronic flash.

We should all applaud this kind person from Denmark then.

I guess you send the donor several selected prints from this lot...

Well done Peter!

I rushed around Southend-on-Sea and Brentwood Town and finished the NP22 then processed in FX-4 Formula 1+1 then scanned and sent Mr Larsen the Kind Donor in Denmark a set so he could see British Towns etc NOW YAHOO MAIL is down so i cannot get his reply

Worth some research. It is thought that ORWO still make some of the films sold by the Lomography concern.
