    Does anyone have experience with Orwo N74+? I'm interested in trying it, but would like to know how close to ISO 400 it is, what developers work best, and how well it pushed. Thanks,

    Summer time I use UN-54 and winter months its the N74. I find it great film and the website ordering works great for shipping to Canada. Developed in Rodinal (1-50) gives some good looking grain. One of my favorite films

    And what great service they offer. I emailed in to ask when the 100' rolls of N-74 were going to come available. They told me to give them a few days and this evening they notified me they were on the Orwo NA site now. Needless to say I bought both. If you need the smaller rolls (100') give them a email they are happy to do it for you. It is even a Sunday which most places are not anxious to do anything till Mon/Tues next week.

    That would be

    They are seemingly not affiliated with new Orwo (Filmotec that is) and do not even show up on their links register.

    Just loaded a bulk roll onto IXMOOs only shot one roll to date, other film commitments, but happy, using TD-201 seems full speed but I shoot sunny sixteen. Results in ORWO group and TD-201 group & mine on Flickr.

    I've read somewhere that the "new" Bergger 35mm BRF-400 Plus film is supposed to be Orwo NP74+ put into 36exposure cassettes.
