    We didn't really push it; we developed it normally. This resulted in thinner
    negatives, but it didn't matter: if you exposed it as Kodak advocated (ASA 50?
    I forget exactly), the resulting negatives were nearly opaque. Kodak's rating
    of the film was absurdly conservative, and everybody knew it.

  2. I must have been in a retarded area; it was all marked 25 when we got it. :)
    Okay. I didn't realize you just meant underexposing the film (with
    respect to its rating). Thanks.

    ? While I never used pan-x much, *I* thought it was 32..
    Again, not from personal experience, but istr that most was
    (successfully) shot at 40-ish, so Bob's 'absurdly conservative' claim
    may be a little harsh. Plus, even back in those days, weren't the
    ratings derived mathematically from the film curves? You can't blame
    the manufacturer unless they lied about their curves, and I don't think
    Kodak was known for that.

  4. Note that until the last snip, someone was talking about shooting it at
    100. Just for the record; I am not arguing with anyone.

    Gee wiz. I'd just like an upgraded D80 with some of the better exposure
    features of the D90 and a 18+ megapixel sensor. Faster transfer speeds
    to the SDHC memory would be nice too. I don't really need my still
    camera to do video.
