Hi Chris, Fernando and all,

It's always interesting to experiment in B&W. Dilution is an often
overlooked parameter that may give surprising results.
Many thanks for sharing! Although at web size, and so many variables in
between, I don't think the sample pictures are representative of the results
-- the ideal excuse for experimenting by our own ;-)

NO!!! Buy film RIGHT NOW and shoot it NOW, if you want film to continue
being manufactured! :-)
Seriously, I'm trying some alternative films from makers like MACO and EFKE,
sometimes under the Rollei brand... Some seem to be rebranded/reformulated
classic emulsions from Agfa and Adox, and some are made by Agfa in Belgium,
but I'm getting interesting results anyway. I love the SuperPan 200, and
there's even a substitute for Techical Pan!
