Hi, I shoot the cheapest. ALWAYS. I reason that a silver halide is a silver halide and I'll worry about the rest when I can afford to. I shoot a seagull not a hassie, I decided to splurge and get the fancy model with the 4 element coated lens. Cost me all of 200 bucks. I do get very good images though, and shoot the hell out of my seagull feeding it the dollar eighty rolls of Arista.edu in 100, 200 and 400. The thing is though, the negatives curl. ALOT! I've shot alot of 120, but I've ONLY ever shot arista in it, so I assumed it was a function of those teeny little spools. It's actually a bit of a handful to contact, and I find it's best to leave it in the binder a couple months before it starts to flatten out enough to avoid forming a roll out of the sleeve the moment it's allowed out of the binder. I gave a couple rolls of arista to my photo instructor the other day though, and she in turn gave me a roll of T-Max. I didn't think about it again, till today, when I slapped it in and went downstairs to shoot my GF. It developed no problem, and annoyingly, it has a teensy bit of purple dye after fixing for ten minutes... No biggie, I've had that before. Then she comes out of the bathroom to sleeve it....IT'S FRIGGIN' FLAT!!!! I can't beleive it, the negs are flat, and sleeve and contact like a dream. I like flat, and I went online to look at the price and nearly shat myself. It's more than four dollars a friggin' roll!!! That's just not going to happen, so I start perusing the other films that are cheap, like foma, and lo and behold they have fuji acros, for about two bucks sixty a roll. Two bucks sixty a roll is no joke mind you, that's alot of money when you hog through film like a fool like me. But I've got to wonder, does it dry flat like the T-max? Because if it dries nice and flat, I might start living the high life on Acros.
