    The moderating team is aware of mr. Huff's recent activity on the forum, and are currently debating whether to stop him before or after he ensures that no APUG subscriber will ever buy one of Clayton Chemical's producs.

    Lee,
    I didn't get the impression that Pablo stated an opinion either way on Lowell's marketing tactics.

    I think F76+ is pretty good, too, and was able to try it out from a sample from Lowell, too. I am not saying that his methods are good or bad, but am merely pointing out that contacting him may yield an opportunity to try it out, too.

    I recently tried DDX with a roll of 120 Delta 3200 shot at EI 1600. First attempt was at a friend's recommended dilution of 1:15 @ 68 degrees for 14 min (2 inversions each minute). The negs looked really good. Decent shadow detail and highlights not too dense, the way that I like them. Still haven't printed them, but I expect a 2.5 or 3 filter will work well.

    Nice film/developer combination. But I really need to shoot some film tests,

    Ara,

    I speak from limited experience, as after trying it I disliked the results so much that I didn't do it again - but - Rodinal 1+50 with Delta 3200 @ 3200 standard agitation (30se c then 10 sec each minute) gave me the following results:
    - BOULDER like grain
    - low contrast
    - slightly thin negs

    Now, I know that the latter two could be worked on, but even a grain phile like me couldn't find the grain attractive (these were candids, indoors - woman and baby, if I recall correctly). Perhaps for different subject matter (foggy landscapes? I actually think that is something I may try for the specific look...), with a little more agitation and dev time, it would be ok - but not for people shots, at least not the way I did it - especially with a baby!
    Of course, please take these observations with the disclaimer of having them come from a relative beginner, and someone who didn't like enough about the results to try any further fine-tuning.
    I too, have had best results with Micrphen 1+0, and still found the film to be a little "blah" for human subjects. As you can surely derive from the useage of the highly technical term "blah", this is a highly subjective observation

    Best of luck!

    Peter.

    Last week I posted an update on this thread about Delta 3200 and pyrocat-hd with some example scans. I would not say it is 'fine grain' but I certainly feel the grain is tight and prints very nicely at 5x7 inch print size.

    If you are shooting at EI1600 or lower (should be---as you are using Rodinal), then you should be able to get a fine grain image with XTOL 1+1 or 1+2 at 25C (I actually use DS-10 1+1 for D3200 at EI1600).

    For EI3200, I find better result with an ascorbate analogue of DD-X, but of course grain is not as fine as with DS-10 or XTOL.

    As others suggested, Ilford's published time for D3200 is too short. Plus, many D3200 users don't recommend using XTOL without dilution. Same applies to DS-10. A 1+1 dilution is good for these devs.
