    You are welcome!
    Polypan F holds reasonably well to at least 200 when the developer is right and You want to go there.

    Good Luck!

    In the past I used few rolls of soviet Svema 65 film and definitely it was one of the worst films I ever tried.
    Worst, is that interesting worst, or bad worst? - Some worst film is actually fun and if it is for 35mm use quality does not matter anyway - However, Svema sounds like something nasty

    I've been making my way through a 400' roll of b/w cine film for a few years now (I shan't mention the manufacturer as it's only an unsupported opinion and the film was never intended for still use).
    I've sometimes found myself wondering whether the QC standard is as high as for the equivalent still stock, as seem to find small blemishes and imperfections in the emulsion more often than I'd expect to.
    The difference in the perf holes shape seems to give a slight variation in frame spacing that I don't get with still film.

    Dunno - shows up as a verb in every online reference I look at.

    This is OT; but in modern English, with its lack of inflection, many nouns can be used as verbs. In this respect English grammer is closer to chinese than other western european languages.

    Eastman 5222 is nice stuff. I'm still working on my 400' spool. Delicious. I rate mine at 250 and do it in D-76 1:1. No time yet to try it in PMK, but I'm thinking it will work well with pyrogallol.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    I posted some 100' spooled-down rolls of SO-331 and SO-379 in the for sale classifieds, if anyone else wants to play with them.
