Pyro, HIE ...What did I do wrong...

    Yeah so, I've been playing with Pyro, and as such the Dr. says I only
    have 6 months to live- however, they should be high-quality months.

    Anyway, I developed a roll of HIE at 100 and it came out all nice and
    "grain like the size of trains". I followed directions to-the-T, but
    then again, I guess I didn't? The developer def. works fine, no
    doubt, but I can't seem to find the error in my ways.

    Is HIE/Pyro combo tricky or something?

    I literally followed the times off of the PF's worksheet and adjusted
    for temp based on "4% per degree". It was my first roll of Pyro/HIE
    so I was ultra-conservative. I even stained it for a few mins after

    I don't get it...Does anyone maybe get it?

  3. I've never successfully used pyro with HIE, but PMK, as pyro developers go,
    works very well with small format films. Other pyro developers like ABC
    aren't quite so accommodating.

    The staining is awesome but the grain is just too much! I'm using
    PF's pyro pmk (liquid)

  5. You might want to try cutting back on development and adding exposure before
    giving up on the combination. It might be that your EI and development time
    work out to be effectively a push.

  6. Is this true, or a joke?
