|Went to Tate Britain on London Millbank to see the Sir Don McCullin Exhibition ( Now Finished) -- i took my 2002 Hasselblad loaded with 1993 dated ORWO NP22 film which I wanted to use up. Mu usual 'Promicrol' for ORWO NP22 had gone all black so I tried my Home- Made Crawley Formula FX-4 1+1 and guessed 7.5 mins @ 20OC.
i scanned negs with Canon 9000 F Mk II + FastStone Image Viewer.

The Sir Don McCullin exhibition in Tate Britain, Millbank, London -- fantastic!! Prints from his ORIGINAL Negs done by him. His 35mm war photos done in difficult conditions were 'Grainless' on the enlargements -- all his print quality was faultless -- wonder what Paper and Paper developer he used ? .Photo shows visitor admiring what must be his most famous War Photo of the Battle-Weary US Marine in Vietnam. I tried 1.15th @ f2.8 but neg was still 'Thin' as lighting was 'subdued' .
