Has anyone used recent HP5+ to make in-camera negatives for
alternative printing? I just tested this film again for the first
time in several years and was really startled by how much better is
than the stuff I previously tested. The B+F is very low and, it has
good expansion and contraction potential, and will develop to a very
high CI (over 1.1). And developing times are relatively short. For
example, for a normal SBR and a DR of 1.70 for palladium printing I
only needed 7:30 minutes of development time in Pyrocat 2:2:100. At
this point the CI was .82 and the B+F was a very low .21 based on UV

Sure be interested in hearing opinions of others who have worked
recently wit this film.
