If it's run in T Max developer which I'm not personally wild about you will get
a true 3200 speed out of it. Notice on the box it says P3200 and the P does not
stand for pool it stands for push!;)
But if it's run in T Max developer you'll get shadow detail at 3200.
In D76 or Rodinal, or Xtol or Hc-110 i got a speed of 1600 out of the stuff.
Same as Neopan 1600 which cost much less and I like better and is the film Ralph
Gibson uses.
