I have been using delta 3200 and Tmax 3200 for about 9 years for this on going big project I do every december. I have always developed it in xtol for 16 min. at full strength. Negs come out good, maybe a little contrasty but not bad. Today on a whim I tried one roll of Delta 3200 at what the chart says, full strength for 7 1/2 min. My negs came out way too thin!!!! Any clues why? I guess I'll go back to the way i have always done
it; I was just trying to save the extra time.. By the way, I shoot it at 3200, and use the automatic setting on my camera. Just wonering why??
