    I would give Tri-X in Diafine a try. Here is an example:

    Canon EOS-1 - 85mm F1.2L
    Tri-X (TXT) @ 1600 in Diafine
    Prints nice with a number 4 filter
    1/250 @ F2.8 - Available Lighting Only

    Thanks very much, Eric! I'll run a roll of Tri-X through Diafine in the next 24 hours and determine what I get and how much I like it.

    I shoot tri-x @ 1600 regularly and develop in XTOL. I am pleased with the results. YMMV

    some examples:

    That's a nice shot-Eric. The expressions in the shooter and blocker make the shot interesting.

    My neighbor shot for his high school newspaper. He liked the 4x5 speed graphic because of the high shutter speed. This would have been in the 50's. I can only imagine the monster flashes going off to give him enough light with the older, slower films.

    I haven't shot black and white inside gym, yet...Do you still need a filter for the flouro or sodium lights? I know that they really beat up color daylight films, if left unfiltered...

    Hi Joe,
    No you shouldn't need filtration for B&W indoors. filters are used to balance color temp with color films.

    I have had a good success with Tri-X @1600 developed in Microphen (hard to find I'am afraid, but you'll never know...). 12 minutes with 30 sec initial agitation and 1 inversion every 2 minutes.

    Here's an example from the shots I took a a few weeks ago of my newborn daughter. Less grainier than similar shots I did with Delta 3200, although a bit more contrasty.

    Good luck

    Ah, yes...[slaps forehead] and this would be why I need a tungsten filter inside home, if I'm not using flash...and bw seems relatively uneffected...hmmm...now I REALLY want to play with some TMZ 3200 that I happened to have, waiting in the frig...thanks Shagg!

    Perhaps HP5 if the Tri-X doesn't work out?

    For what it's worth... If you like the Tri-X pushed two stops, then by all means stick with it. This late in the game my recommendation may be pointless, but I have really liked using HP5 @ EI 800/1600 developed in Xtol (full strength) for indoor use. So if the Tri-X doesn't work out, this might be for you as well.
