- it has nice traditional type grain, very different from Tri-X's.
- it is pushable to 1600 in TMax, but it is better at 400.
- the times are 25% longer in TMax developer compared to Tri-X.
- it has less contrast in TMax developer compared to Tri-X.
ExamplesE.I.1600(TMax developer 1+4, 9 min at 75F/24C) :
E.I.400(TMax developer 1+9, 12 min at 75F/24C)
Bottom line:The can I bought was $55 + shipping. Not overly expensive, but not too cheap either since the same size can of Ilford HP5 will cost the same at B&H or Adorama with free shipping.
So, I'll probably buy the HP5 insted next time, unless I will be able to buy ORWO NP74+ cheaper. It is out of stock at http://orwona.com anyway...
