    Neopan 400 in XTOL is excellent. D3200 in 120 is a godsend [developed in DDX, Celer-Mono or PCAT]-still experimenting!

    If I run out of D3200 I push Tri-X as high as 1600 in DD-X. Not bad at all, but it has a lot more contrast than D3200. Therefore I tend to shoot Tri-X @ 1600 only on heavily overcast days, not at night. Any amount of daylight prevents the shadows from going black.

    I thought about trying Neopan 1600 at 800 or 1200 to keep the contrast down. But I need to hit 1600 here in gloomy London to be able to shoot on the street at f16@1/125th. So, that would make it a day film.

    I think the real speed of Neopan1600 is around 640asa. According to Ilford D3200 clocks in around 1200, as does TMY3200.

    I develop D3200 @ 1600 in DD-X for 9 min. This is a minute more than Ilford advises. I found this to add a little kick to the neg, which otherwise can come out flat as a pancake. Of course this all depends on your water, agitation etc.

    I use DD-X at 1:4, which along with the cost of D3200, is slowly driving me into bankruptcy. ;-)
    I would try it at 1:9, but I'm worried that I'll end up with too much grain.

    I've been a DD-X man for the past 5 years or so. Use it for D3200 and Tri-X, regardless of the asa.

    I'm toying with the idea of trying Xtol, again. I gave it a shot a few years ago and had some problems, but in hindsight realize that I screwed up the mixing.

    I personally have had a great time using XTOL with TMZ and TX. Just pour the 5 L mix into either 5 1L bottles or 10 .5 L bottles. No hassle.

    I shoot 35mm and while I am huge fan of Neopan 1600 I have shot my fair share of Delta3200 and agree that it is a lovely film. Grain is more of a consideration for my smaller negatives, and contrast, in addition to being a stylistic norm for the way I often like to see things, allows my larger print sizes to be percieved as sharper, especially considering that I frequently shoot handheld. All of which is to say that Neopan is more commonly used be me and my needs, but the 3200 excels at things like portraiture and medium shot candids. A wonderful film.

    Dear Harry,

    Thanks for the nice report on DELTA 3200 : I have to say your shots look fabulous :

    grain, devved in whatever is in one of the the darkrooms when I sneak in lunchtime.

    Regards

    Simon, that is a good first step. How do we get you to shoot large format only
