Hey, I like these a big bunch.

Thanks!

All I did was reverse it, nothing more, so you can reverse it back to negative.

This is not a scan, it's a photograph of it on a light table, totally straight out the camera.

Hi,

This neg has surprisingly low contrast which is way better than blocked highlights with vacant shadow detail. You'll notice the type on the papers is sharp and fairly well defined, and how about the lack of mushy grain.

Sorry having an issue attaching the file.

Okay,very good idea and I'll do as you suggest.

Hi, this ISO 12,800 is for real and I've been at this for a long time and I hit upon this by pure accident by trying something unconventional, even a tad radical.

The hazard issue is handling the unmixed chemistry, once mixed it's more or less okay if handled with a bit of extra caution, and no it's not explosive.

You can see scratches evident on the left side of photo, this happen as a result of extended time in solution which softens and causes swelling of the emulsion. So, take Ed's advice or just air dry without heat.

Good advice re NOT to squeegee your film after washing except what Ed does.

This shot of my close friend was also made at ISO 12,800.

Your technique sounds excellent. Incident meter readings are for me the most reliable despite having a spot meter and working experience with the zone system. My processing is with a modified formula containing some pesky hazardous ingredients. I do process semi-stand for 1.5-2hours. This chemistry for some reason does work with 'T' grain emulsions???

A friend of mine uses HC110 and his images are just outstanding! I've tried the over night thing and what happens is the developer at some point becomes exhausted meaning there's no additional image. However, my experience with very extended processing times a chemical fog becomes a factor and for me this masking can be a real bonus. This imparts a vintage look not dissimilar to the images made in the 1850's.


The fun continues!

I agree, sometimes there's magical outcome from making a mistake.

Hi,

35mm HP5 exposed at ISO 12,800. The scale and density of the negs suggest another .5 stop is reasonable.


There's some interest to package this developer for online sale and so I can tell you the processing time is 1.5 hrs at 70F. Most important is some of the chemistry during mixing must be handled with great caution!!!


Yeah, agitate 10-15 seconds each time my coffee needs a refill, about 20-30 minutes.

Howdy,

Meters; Lunasix F, Sekonic L-398, Pentax Spot, all of them fortunately give me the same readings and I might add the meter in my Oly EM5 MK2 is not at odds with any of them.

Yes, it's the developer... a 5 stop push.
