    I tried this combo on a 120/645 test a few years ago...Once! It didn't seem like a good pairing. I got an EI of 640 at 16 minutes with my equipment and techniques and from past patterns of mine, I'd guess others would be pleased enough at 800, though. I think that you might need to use a developer more suited to the task (though I'm a big PyroCat fan [settled on the MC variant] and use it almost exclusively on other films). I've had my best luck with Xtol 1:1 on Delta 3200 and would nudge you in that direction....

    Herb -

    I followed Sandy King's regimen for the divided development. Solution A and B diluted separately, 1:10 with water, 75 degrees F. 5 minute presoak in 75 degree water, 6 minutes in each solution. I was shooting in a variety of lighting situations at an evening street fair, so going with the divided developer was a good way for me to get the best average negatives. I think Craig Shroeder's advice to try X-tol 1:1 would be a good way to go as well. T-Max developer is another good choice for this film and T-Max 3200. The long tonal scale needs a developer with some oomph to get the right contrast. That's why, in hindsight, I might have used Pyrocat-HD 1:1:100 with a normal agitation scheme instead of divided. My negs are good, but a bit flat.

    That's what I did following the advice gleaned from Unblinking Eye- 60 mins semistand diluted 1+200 and rated at 1250/1600. Might try doubling the B solution to add some more alkaline oomph actually.

    Delta 3200 development

    I had a bag of xtol. I had never mixed it, but had the idea to try it-lo and behold, worked like a champ stock, 9 min agitation every 30 sec. Half the roll shot at 800 and half at 1600 film is drying. Negs are good, a bit early to definitively decide about time/speed etc.
