    Actually I got a roll of Oscilloscope Recording film onct, free. Blue sensitive emulsion. Since the cost was so low all I needed was cassettes and home processing. Stepping up to Plus X was a treat, then Tri X. Sure made me appreciate f 2.8!

    Being - been there, done _that_ and more than once.
    The "quest" for higher and higher ISO has reached dizzying heights. But it has also highlighted (no pun intended) the short comings of that way of measuring the "correct" exposure.

    I learned it as 'proper' exposure.

    Anyway I guess if you don't like slow you wouldn't care for doing lumen prints - expired photo paper in daylight. I just leave it til, oh, the next day... whenever I feel like getting it off the table in the window.

    Shot lots of Kodachrome 25 in the 60's and 70's because it was on issue and a few rolls would sneak home in my pocket from time to time. Processing was prepaid in Canada too.

    Bought a roll of Panatomic x to use on a collection of Haida art, mostly argilite and silver carvings. We moved East before I had a chance to develop, gave it to the drugstore and (no surprise) prints came back black as yer boots. Scanned the negs a few years back and was able to salvage some pix. I have a better scanner now and also have more pp experience so I'll try again.
