    Also I have been using microphen exclusively, any reason why I should change if I decide to use a lot of this film, i am considering buying bulk rolls if all goes well.
    Which leads to next question.
    Re - loadable cassettes, how many times can i expect to use each cassette before light leaks become a problem.
    I have seen some new stock kood plastic cassettes. Some say plastic, some say metal, but surely new ones would be the best option.
    regards
    Microphen should be fine with Fomapan 200, they have published similar Fine Grain PQ developers themselves and give times for Microphen. Like Fomapan 100 I shoot the 200 at half the box speed and get excellent results.

    If you check the light seals re-loadable cassetes can be used many times I'd guess I used some of mine 20-30 times, probably more. I always shecked the velvet light trap wasn't lifting at the corners and made sure it was clean and the pile of the velvet wasn't becoming compressed. That way I never had an problem.

    Thank you Polygot and Ian.Just the info I was after.I had read somewhere that 7-10 was maximum for the cassettes, but I did wonder at the economics of that number.cheers
