Last year I obtained 30 rolls of 35mm APX25, expired 2004. I'd read a lot about this film and many hold it in high regard so I thought I'd be stupid to pass the opportunity, but I've been quite underwhelmed. Should I learn to love this film or trade it on? I normally shoot Neopan 400, I like grain and contrast - I print 5"x7" on grade 4. I shot a test roll of APX25 a few months back on a sunny afternoon walking down a local country lane and developed it in HC-110 for whatever time the massive dev chart recommended. The film is functionally fine, but for me, quite boring. I found it difficult to print with much contrast, there's practically no grain at all at 5x7 and without a tripod DoF becomes an issue. What does this film excel at?
