    Any fans of Plus X ?

    Just wondering what people think of Kodak Plus X.

    Any good? Would it be a good landscape film? Is it fairly forgiving with exposure?

    I'm using 35mm by the way...

    This is one of my favorite all-time films. If you want to see how forgiving it, look in my gallery and look at the night photos. They are all 35mm Plus-X developed in Rodinal. I think this is a great developer for the film.

    "Any good?" Yes! I have thousands of negs shot on Plus-X. Probably about 25/75% between med format and 35mm. Almost always devved in D76 1:1. Fine grained, looks good for skin and landscape the way I see it. Does not do well if over-developed much at all, as highlights will blow. Keep that in mind and give it a try.

    I'm feeling kind of dumb. I thought Plus X was discontinued?

    Certainly one of my favourites over the last 25 years. Works for me.

    Plus X

    Plus X is a wonderful unique emulsion- the closest thing to the late lamented Verichrome Pan. It is slightly more blue sensitive than average and benefits from use of a yellow filter.

    Actually PX in sheet films was quite different from the roll film. Both were great and I'll miss the sheet version. I would advise anyone beginning photography in 35mm to start with PXP and D76 1:0. It is very forgiving and easily responds to most of the "Zone" controls. If anyone is interested in how I handled the Zone system with this material is invited to pm me. It's fun!
    I love the smell of fixer in the morning. It smells like...creativity!
    Truly, dr bob.
