I finally finished restoring my Ricohflex Model-T and this was the first roll since the repairs.

Ilford PanF+ shot at 50ASA and developed in Caffenol-C (500ml water, 30g washing soda, 6g vitamin C crystals, 40g instant coffee) for 10 minutes with 60 seconds of inversions at the start and 10 seconds every minute thereafter.
