Andy that Xtol really works well with this film... I wonder why mine come out a tiny bit brown, the negetaives... hm whatever they scan fine.
This is sometimes noticed with Xtol. It is caused by the size of the silver grains. Another fine grain developing agent which does this is chlorhydroquinone used in warm tone print developer formulations in the past.
