    Diafine and Heavy Metal

    Here is another experiment with Diafine. I am not sure what the shutter speed was or aperture either. I was shooting with a 40mm 1.4 lens and was close to wide open. I used Trix shot at 1250iso. So far I am sold on Diafine. It is about the best developer I have used. Concert shooting with a fully manual camera is very tricky. I used my M6.
    DSLR's were am no no at the show.

    I am like Barney Fife, I have a gun but Andy makes me keep the bullet in my pocket..

    Re: Diafine and Heavy Metal

    I think they came out really well, Greg. This is what Diafine does best. It's definitely not my favorite developer for general use, but you can't beat it for low light and high contrast. I recently shot a band with roll of arista 400 (TriX) at 1250, which I plan to develop in diafine, but I don't know when I'll have time to develop it. Maybe next week.
