    If you've got Delta 3200, use it! Just don't develop in Rodinal unless you like big clumpy grain.

    I typically use D3200 at 1600, and develop in DDX at times recommended for 3200 speed. TMax should give you similar results.

    Well the deed is done now, Kent. Let us know what you chose and how the negs turned out. Better still scan them and let us have a look

    Thanks

    The candle light part of the service is very short- only about 2 minutes. In addition, the candles are lit by ushers on the end of a pew, then each person turns and lights the next person's candle, etc. So the light level is constantly changing throughout the hymn, and it is not until the last verse that everyone raises their candles that the light level is fairly steady. I didn't think this would be so challenging! I shot 2 frames on AEL mode and other 8 in manual at 1/2, 1/4, 1,8 1/15, and 1/30 sec on aperture of f/4. I was able to sqeeze a small tripod in on the front row of the balcony. All in all, it was a fun exercise and I'm probably going to develop the film in tMax developer today following the massive development chart app recommendations. I ordered a V700 scanner from Adorama but it has not arrived yet, so I will scan the negs in a few days and get back to everyone.

    Thanks, and Merry Christmas to everyone!

    Looks good, you chose wisely going with the 3200 @ 3200, I think the candle looks blown out but its to be expected and the people are a little dark but the overall scene looks really nice. Can we see the 1/2 and 1/4 and 1/16 (or was it 1/30?)

    I can't seem to figure out the difference between the AE and AEL and I'm always afraid I'll lock the exposure then get stuck with it haha

    I did figure out the getting past 1600 on the Mamiya.. I still can't understand why they don't just have that as an option.. Why they limited to 1600 and not 3200...

    Maybe try reducing contrast and printing a bit darker. Might get more detail from the candle light.

    Hi!
    try kodak tri-x at 2000ASA
    in dektol 1:4 24cel about 68-farhrenheit
    for stater at 4 min with 5 sec agitation every 60sec
    along wash in water stop bath this is so the developer is still
    in the film emulsion wash it slowly
    1 min wash bath with full agitation 60 sec dump, and refill with water - full agitation 60 sec dump-repeat 3times
    [also if you let the wash bath sit there is a difference...
    fix, wash, and dry!

    I think a lot is based on your equipment lens camera ...etc..
