Then I would print it on a high contrast setting with VC paper.
    They don't make Kodak 3200 anymore... Delta it is! Lol

    http://www.apug.org/gallery1/showima...atid=newimages

    I have impressed with that image very much. Owner says it was Olympus XA and set to 400 asa and early dark morning , ordered lab d76 1:1 one stop push development.

    I am putting a copy here:

    Looks like way over sharpened/scanning artifacts.

    Why don't you just try the same thing? Underexpose your Tri-X and push (ie overdevelop) in D-76 1:1.

    There is only color Fuji Film here, Michael. And due to dollar gained %40 in one month , I have to stop ten times to import film. If I become extremelly sure if something works out , I will invest money and 5 weeks waiting.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. People draw way too many conclusions about films and developers based on posted scans of negatives etc. You can't really tell anything that way.

    True, that image looks like another I posted with a woman in it, but to avoid issues and out of respect for Mustafa's perspective and beliefs I won't post it here.

    But D3200 film will do just fine, or pushing Tri-x to 1600 in Rodinal (which I've done) will work.

    Sorry about the cost gain, strange that the dollar to us has fallen to crazy lows... Yet still high compared to many countries.

    Is it possible to gain high acutance with Pyro Developer ?

    Is it possible to gain high acutance with Pyro Developer ? I think pyro is the only developer I would use in many styles.

    ps.Stone ,I am still taking pictures with my Bolex C8 and its an endless endavour. After some try with norwood director , I found it is strange and I am not so intelligent to solve it. I decided to use my XA as a Lightmeter. Its strange to hold bolex with left hand , looking with right eye and taking with right hand and cable. Dollar was 1:1 and now 1:2.4 in 5 years or longer.

    ps2. Michael , I dont have any chance to see these chemicals , processes effects without internet and screen.

    Mustafa,
    Now I understand what look you are going after. The XA will be fine for an image like that. I was thinking you were after critically sharp high resolution negatives with a hint of grain. What your after can be made with higher speed films like Foma 400, which has fairly well defined grain, and push processing. Also, a little more vigorous agitation might help make the grain more noticeable also. I mentioned Foma 400 simply because it has grain, but the pattern doesn't seem as random as some films are. Also, I'd still use something like Rodinal or a Metol type developer with very little sodium sulfite and more sodium carbonate.

    Rather than Pyro I'd again suggest a dilute Metol formula such as a Beutler-type (as suggested by Gerald above) or FX-1.
