    It's great film, but you have to be careful not to blow the highlights. It's incredibly sharp in ABC pyro, but locks up after about N+1.

    BTW, I would never use TRIX (that's for kids, silly rabbit). I'd use TMax.

    I do love England, if only because the weather reminds me of my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, where we had 60 days of sunshine a year.

    which part of england have you been visiting, David? - It's warm and sunny here for most of the summer. (and autumn too).

    getting back to the point - I love HP5, although I only use roll film. I find it is best pulled about a stop in dilute perceptol or about 2/3 stop in pyrocat hd 1:1:100.

    I'm just kidding, of course, about England, but there is something almost too linear about HP5+ for my taste. With HP5+ most of the action is happening in the middle values, and with Tri-X, the interest is at the ends of the scale. HP5+ seems more about gradation, and Tri-X is more about line, and I guess I like line.
