    Nice country. I've had problems with mini-lab staff who refused Kodak C-41 b&w 'cause it said "B&W" on the can along with "C-41 Process" in large print--something Kodak thought would prevent these situations. Keep trying with Walmart. Suspect you're looking at mail order processing(Toronto Image Works) if you jump to medium format. Any labs doing 120 in North Bay?

    Unless you can find help in North Bay, few labs are doing affordable proofs or prints direct from 120 negatives now. They'll take scans from negs or transparencies but lab scanning just for a looksee can get pricey. You can go the hybrid route and scan 'em yourself for a digital contact sheet, then send off digital files for printing.

    Hi,
    I was just looking at Flicker HP5+ film group.
    It opened with a picture of a Gorgeous black woman ( I could say African American but I don't know if she is American).
    But anyhow, the photo details 67 negative @iso 200 D76 dev 1:1 dilution
    So I assume that means a 6x7 negative. That is some negative to play with.
    Isn't the HP5+ a 400 asa at box speed.
    That picture is so clear, So what happens negative wise when as in this case it was shot at only half the asa speed?

    It's quite common to use it at EI 200 (twice as much exposure) and then develop with about a 20% reduction in development time. The extra exposure gives greater shadow detail whilst the reduced development prevents the highlights from getting too dense.

    If parts of a negative (those that correspond to highlights in the original scene) come out too dense, then the positive print that results will have highlight areas that are too light, unless you adjust your printing accordingly.
