  The "real" speed of Delta 3200 (for "normal" contrast) is about EI
1000-1250 in phenidone developers; accepting about a grade higher contrast
and a little lower than "normal" shadow detail gives a nice EI 1600-2000.
  The "real" speed in a metol developer with "normal" contrast is all of
about EI 500, pretty useless. EI 800 is of course doable but it'll show
higher contrast and more grain than with a PQ developer.
  By "real" speed I'm referring to the traditional speedpoint, which of
course isn't really applicable in pushing but at least gives us a common
