    Tried last winter Kodak TMZ (e.i. 800 -3200 iso) with D-23 (some 15-25 minutes in 20°C, reduced agitation, like Thomas "every 3 or 5 minutes).
    The result was surprisingly nice, so I bought some more rolls for this winter (quite dark in northern Sweden in Dec-Jan!)

    There's perhaps nothing wrong in using anything with anything... However why would you like to bother yourself with using D3200 (real ISO of around 1600) with a iso downgrading developer that in results will yield in ~iso800 with a quite flat scene ..Why wouldn't you go and buy a cheaper D400/HP5+/TriX expose it @800 and put it in to cheaper Xtol 1:1

    I shot one roll of Delta 3200 (@1600) and developed in stock ID11 and it came out spot on.

    Hello;
    Perceptol is a fine grain developer like the old Microdol-X. Shoot at 1600asa then develop at 15 to 18 minutes. Should come out fine. You lose half of the film speed using these developers. ID-11 or D-76 would be a better combo for about 12min at full strength. The faster films tend to be a bit grainy, and the rated speed seems optomistic. Steven.

    My experience with Perceptol leads me to suggest that even the 18 mins for an EI of 1600 is the absolute minimum. I'd be tempted to try at least 20-21 mins assuming that you'd still like to persist with Perceptol.

    Hi,
    Two freshly developed films have been just hanged.. TX@1600 and TMZ@1600 both in D76 1:1 @20C for 18min and 16min respectively. Both look right on, with just the TMZ having lot higher base fog. Tmorrow I'll see about the grain, but I feel like TX will do the job fine.
    cheers
