Maybe not the best choice of film for that -- but it's what I had with me.

Anyway, this is my first experience with this film; I typically shoot Tri-X or Neopan and develop in D76 1:1. I've read that many people shoot Pan F at 25; I've also read that the T5 flash tends to (sometimes) overexpose -- though I've only seen that statement made anecdotally. So I'm not sure what to expect. Research indicates that D76 is a bit further down the list of preferred developers for Pan F. I'm willing to sacrifice some of the fine grain goodness for well-exposed shots if it comes to that. Thoughts?
Ilford Perceptol is a fine-grain developer that should work well with Pan F Plus; otherwise D-76 / ID-11 will do an excellent job. Whose research are we taking about here? ID-11 may be far down your list, but it's pretty darn close to the top of mine!
