The true speed of that film is about 800, not 3200. I suggest you run several trials before developing an important roll.

Your first test should be with the times and temps the came as LC 29 with Delta 3200. Look at the result and adjust your processing time accordingly.

If you use Clayton F 76 plus Developer with Delta 3200, exposed @1600, dilute 1+9 and develop for 13.5 minutes. The results will be outstanding!

T-Max

Funny I just read this post, when the night before I was reading an old issue of Darkroom Photography dated November, 1988. Lo and behold, an early review of P 3200!!!! The reviewers were Ctein, George Post, and Alfred Blaker. Anyway, all three rated this film @ 1600 to 3200, with, in their opinion, acceptable to excellent results, using T-Max developer. I personally don't use the T-Max films, but thought I would throw this out for what it was worth.
