    You are really nailing it. I got to develop and shoot some more stuff but it has been gloomy here!

    loos as it may need twice the exposure and 10%less development.

    End result for me is 40asa 6 mins in replenished D76d first made up in 1985

    The results in winter sunlight print easily at grade 2 on a Leitz V35 + Multigrade head

    That is the easiest way for me to use it

    I'll post more when my hard drive works. It sucks. I've taken a lot more picturess

    Sourcing = impossible as far as I can tell. I've been looking into it.

    A few more, shot at ISO 100, developed in ID11 (1+2) for 9:30 ... still overdeveloped. These were in a daaaark room. Used with a tripod.

    I tried Rodinal 1:50, 68F, 7.5 minutes, agitate first 30 seconds, then 5 seconds every two minutes EI50. This turned out much better than my first batch which was overdeveloped (8 minutes with more agitation). I am feeling more confident that this film can be used in not only even lighting but also with harsh lighting (dark shadows). The negatives are so sharp. Test shots - the first one is of a banana pepper plant in a navy blue container in very harsh side lighting. The second one is of a grave marker. The usual disclaimers about image quality. A sharp, contrasty film, no doubt, but it can be tamed.

    Tonight I will test if they are printable with traditional methods. I bet they are.

    Thanks again Field!

    This stuff can be very sharp, or very dreamy. I find at lower shutter speeds the sharpness is diminished for me often. Maybe it is my hands, but I don't know! I usually pull of sharp pictures at lower shutter speeds (nothing too low, like 60th). Maybe it has more to do with DOF and focus. The film is designed for receiving a rather flat image, maybe that has something to do with it.

    I just did EI100, rodinal 1:50 68*, at 5 minutes. It came out pretty good except my skills with my spotmeter in my OM4 have a little left to be desired. I only agitated it at the beginning, and in the middle. I also pre-soak like three times until it stops running pink when I dump the water. I wouldn't think that would change anything, but maybe it does... I mean my development time is much lower than yours! Yours look a bit better though.

    Hm.

    After playing around with rodinal 1:50 at 5 minutes, the negatives are minorly thin. Thing is printing turns out better at something close to grade 4, where as if I developed it longer I get stuck with higher contrast. If my intention was only to scan I'd probably increase development time a little bit, 15-30 seconds; but the lack of tonality in printing would bother me so right now I think I got it where I want. The grain at this level is super fine, hard to even see with grain focuser.

    I guess for EI50 I'll do 1:100, and try to get that time down as well. I suspect 1:50 with EI200 or EI400 will work out, guessing maybe at 1.5 minute increases per stop. Got some testing to do...
