I wasn't trying to put the idea down, only deal with the reality of the situation..
I did not try to tell you how to do anything. I asked a question:
Please tell me, how is asking a question, one that I have said that I do not have the answer to, telling you how to do anything at all?could Delta 100 with an ND filter over the lens and pushed in a compensating developer give a similar effect? I don't know, I've never tried it
And you thing that me asking, since Harman have already said 'no', if there could maybe be another way to acheive the required effect, is showing a lack of respect and politeness?
Very sorry. I will take great care never to risk offending you again.
