    Right on the money Thomas! Sometimes we worry about things that really don't need to be worried about. Nice picture of you two. I didn't think you were that old? Oh, you're the big, tall Scandinavian on the right. Ha! Ha! good job and a good reward for hard work.

    MicrodolX was good stuff just like Perceptol is, but when I used a fast film I usually was using it for speed. Microdol/Perceptol were speed cutters with Tri-X. At least it was that way for me. Now I use Perceptol 1:3 and find that with TMY2 and Acros I can get pretty close to box speed, but developing times are rather long. JohnW

    Same stuff. I use their Eco Pro, which is Xtol and it's the same for all practical purposes.

    People do read your posts, Tom. And they are never erased. They are searchable by future Internet users. I was told once to write Internet posts as if they were letters to my boss. While I don't comply with that, I do think a bit about what future readers will see.

    Yeah, I look very old for age 41.

    Congratulations, Thomas.
    I agree, my motto is "I'd rather have a decent negative of a good image than a good negative of a decent image."
    Of course, you do your best at the time, but it's the image that counts.

    I would develop as normal in Rodinal, with K 400 I find you lose a stop in Rodinal, and it will be very grainy, and not what I call nice grain, such as you get with Fomapan 400
