In the past I've tried all kinds of film/dev combinations, since with 
you don't need time/temp charts.  I once had to expose Tri-X at ISO 32, but 
using Microdol-X developer (which gives less than rated speed) and pulling 
film when the density looked right yielded this:
I have a16"x20" of this that looks like Panatomic-X.

I'm going to scan more cars from that meet when I get time, and have to find 
spec sheet on the cars that were there so I can post that info with the 
I think the Golden Torpedo dates from 1918!

The Canon 50 f/1.2 seems to have a focus field that is dish-shaped, with 
on the edges sharp if they are closer to the lens than whatever is actually 
in the
rangefinder focal point.

Thanks everyone who commented on this set.
