    I was being silly. But I do know some people who will happily accept old paper and then fix, wash, dry and then re-coat and use it.

  6. Re: Boosting contrast with extended development, your choice of film.

    This is 35mm but I am sure the TMAX-100 sheet film behaves the same way. Your straight line section is so clean at every contrast level, that you just need to expose enough to get up on the line,...

    I found myself with a box of F3 and F4 Single Weight. One has too much fog, the other is more usable. I assume because one had poor storage.
