Does not this site have a credo somewhere along the lines of "That is called Grain.It is supposed to be there".?
Eric is right; it curled like a steel spring. Coated on a base Kodak never dared use for any other consumer film.
It was ,simply extraordinary stuff. I just used it like it was ,well,about 6400 asa, (yes,ASA : ISO had not been invented yet) and left it in the tank while I made,and drank,a cup of coffee.
Grain out the wazoo,but accompanied by amazing acutance.
I have a photograph,Nikkor 28/3.5 at f5.6,of a house against the first light of dawn,and the telephone line is etched against the sky as though it was drawn with an etching pen.
Years later I had occasion to use the P3200 equivalent.
It is true what they say - you can't ever go back.
