    uh, take a look at fuji acros 100 -- $2.69 a roll at Adorama, it is grainless, no kidding, making enlargments from 120 I use a focusing magnifier and have to use a detail on the image, I can't find grain to focus on.

    Acros is nice film but is nothing like Plus-X.

    Plus-x is my fetish film simply because I started with it, 20 years ago. Plus-x, APX100, HP5 and TMax3200 are my absolute favorites.

    I'm so glad to have shot my latest Cuba series on Plus-X. Couldn't imagine using a different film.

    As for a substitute? I'd lean more towards Fomapan100 for the look. FP4 would be very easy to get accustomed to but the look is not the same.

    have to admit i never shot plus x in 120 -- shooting a lot of it in 35 right now in the Arista rebadged stuff, but have pretty much only used Acros in the Rollei for the last 5 years or so -- amazing stuff.

    Acros is a t-grain style film. Plus-X is not. Different grain, tone, curves. Different beasts.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    VERY different beasts. Acros is also not quite panchromatic, or as panchromatic, or something. It has a different look, very worthwhile on its own but sure not Plus-X.

    I like FP4+. I got into medium format after Plus-X was already gone, but I've shot a lot of it over the years in 35mm. I'd like to have used it in 120, but alas not. The prices on eBay for 120 Plus-X of reliable vintage always go to levels I'm not going to pay. FP4+ is a very nice film. Not the same, but I don't think a photo is going to succeed or fail based on whether it's on Plus-X or FP4+.

    Aren't those prices horrible. No more than a week before the annoucement that PlusX was terminated I bought some some 120 at "normal" prices. I'm happy for myself but wishing I had bought more when I could.

    For what it's worth, I am now experimenting with some outdated but carefully stored aerial +sex and it is very nice I paid next to nothing for it (thanks Mark!) and it's superb. Not a lick of fog.

    I agree that fp4+ is the film to try; with a bit of experimentation, you can probably get the tones close enough; the grain is just about equal.

    Acros is Sigma-grained not T-grain. :-). Similar yes but not quite the same. But yes, makes it quite different than Plus-X though if one tries you can make Acros look less like Tmax and more towards Plus-X if you want, not exact of course.
