If both of those are correct, assuming I'm not suffering from a senior moment, how do the two fit together? Well? Or do they miss the mark?
Might be promising. There are also things you can do to the RA-4 developer to increase contrast, so between the two of them, one might be able to get decent optical prints from MP negative film. I am not sure what the orange mask situation on MP film is, though. I have shot some 500T, but it was always scanned, not printed.
