    Found an 'Undated' Ilford Delta 400 Pro cassette in fridge so gave my OM-2n an outing. I was going to process in my Home-Made FX-4 Formula 1+1 so rated it at 400ASA and 'Guessed' 8.5 Mins @ 20° C ...Well , most negs were 'Thin' so I tried a heavy 'Curves' adjustment in PhotoShhop 7 to bump up the Contrast and tones -- result -- Grain Like Golf Balls !

    I've never been bothered by grain size unless it obscures the point of the shot. In this case it doesn't.

    I like the grain effect. It adds t the black and white image.

    All I ever find is outdated cheese. Our fridges must look very, very different ;)

    I'm confused, Tony. :confused: The concept of resisting a block of cheese - for such a long time that it actually becomes out-dated - is totally alien to me. ;)
