    Because of the characteristics of this developer, and fairly standard developing time regardless of which film is being used, here's my question. Is it possible to get decent results on a roll of film if one were to vary exposure by using multiple ISO settings on the same roll? For example, if I were to shoot 5 frames at 100 ISO, and 5 at 400 ISO, would I still get 10 printable negs?

    It all depends on what film and what you consider a printable negative...hows that for informative?! If you were shooting say TX at 400-1600 I would say YES...If you were shooting Acros at say 100-400 I'd say no. I've been posting on my web site The Figital Revolution www.figitalrevolution.com extensive articles on Diafine and many different films. I just posted tonight tests results for Fuji Acros 100 in Diafine....later this week Tmax 100 in Diafine.
