I think I have an observation re this film that many have repeated but I want to articulate as a side coversation, this film needs to be very tightly exposed and developed. Any over/under exposure and/or over/under develop will blow the highlights or lose the shadows, consequently would it make sense to suggest that this film be developed in a diluted developer because as Field has shown, +/- 30 seconds in stock (in his case Tmax 1:4) can greatly affect outcome? Developing this in say replenished Xtol (which is really like 1:1) or Tmax 1:9 might be the name of the game? I bet this film needs a specific dev time for sunlight (which I have yet to do) vs a overcast gray day, and therefore with such little wiggle room, diluted might be the only way to keep this somewhat fickle film in control (like a wild stallion)?
Mark - I love that power plant shot, I think I need a #12 for sun. Thanks for the info re Sexton, I need to pick that up! It does help contextualize what we are seeing from the sunny crew (you and Rick) and the shady crew (Field and I).
Hope more post - John (Grumpy) you get you film in that neat camera yet?
