    I've shot a ton of Provia 400X @ 1600. Here are a few examples:

    It can get some crazy colors in weird light:

    Sounds like total BS to me.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Sorry, don't post things like that, that would lead others to believe it is when you have no evidence to say so.

    The use of mercury vapour for hypersensitisation is quite well known in the astrophotography world---I guess the only question would be whether a pool of mercury at room temperature outgasses enough to do much good. I don't see any special reason to write the claim off as "total BS".

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    TWok, great pictures! Japan is a trip, ne...

    Mercury hypersensitisation is surely not BS. As for outgassing at room temp, IDK, but Daguerre's method used a candle to heat a tin of mercury. But if it's liquid at room temp, it stands to reason that some might vaporize.

    Oh by no means do I not believe in mercury sensitization. It was merely in reference to breaking a thermometer and letting the film sit next to the mercury as a way to do it.

    What's next? Gold from urine?

    Yeah dont say that. You are calling a person a liar. But you have no evidence.

    I have several cheap mercury thermometers, I've accidentally broken some before, it's enough to fill a room quickly. Putting it in an enclosed container with film will have the film sitting in mercury vapour.
