Examples to come soon.
David,

I shoot this combination all the time and love it. Never had any problems with it being "Super Grainy".

I'm not sure what caused it.

Both my 120 & 35mm are developed 1:1 @ 75d for 5:30 in a SuperSidekick (Like Jobo) processor.

I DO NOT "Pre Wet" the film using TMAX 400 @ XTOL. I read on Jobo's web site that you should not do so.

Those who have seen my prints from the exchanges can tell you they exibit virtually no grain.
