    Movie films ... What can I say more , do you think a director invests 250 million dollars to a movie leaves his movie to a chance ? Movie films might be most heavily researched films on earth. If it is good for Cinema , it must be good for your photography , thats basic.

    There are too many old timers used these films and post their positive opinions somewhere lost in the 1 million posts.

    My neighbor is a military aerial photographer and he had been used movie films many years ago. He says , sometimes, some indian attacking the white guys shots comes off from the developer

    If you are lucky , you can learn from a couple indian moves , we call it kamasutra , google it

    6 dollar for tri x , 7 dollar for cigarette or you select the best tobacco and buy it from some folks and your roll cost 50 cent. Same happens at film business.

    Intelligent people makes intelligent moves and protects their families money.

    Salam,

    How do you compare with Orwo UN54? Here, they are selling 100f roll for EUR 30.

    Is ordering direct from Kodak the best way to obtain Eastman Double X? I'd like to give it a try. 400 feet is more than "a try" but what the heck.

    Yes, absolutely. Quick easy, fresh from the manufacturer. For those in the US here is the link:

    http://store.kodak.com/store/ekconsu...oryID.55766300

    400' is $154.84 as of this writing.

    If you're not in the US, just call your country's main number for Kodak. They should ship it to anyone, it's just easier in the US over the internet.

    First picture is the greatest one , I prefer the microdol 1+1. First picture tones have excellent dark grey space and is the best . What was your lens for that picture ?

    Umut,
    The first three pictures were shot with a Voigtlander 15mm M-mount lens. The redwood was scanned as a color slide and inverted to capture as much shadow detail as possible. The sepia tone is a side-effect.

I haven't tried it with a bunch of different developers but that's definitely on my list when I get some time.
    Actuallly if you look at Kodak's published diffuse RMS granularity values for Double-X and Tri-X Professional, the Double-X is finer grained RMS granularity 14 (very fine) vs 16 (fine).

    I shoot it at an EI of 400 and develop it in either Rodinal or HC-110 (my preferred developer) diluted 1+49 at 21 C. Times are 7.5 min and 8.5 min respectively. It is imporatant not to overexpose films as granularity will suffer.

    Beautiful film!

    Hoffy,

    I have purchased a lot of 16mm film from the US website. My brother orders it, and then on ships it to me. KodakFrom past orders of 2x 400' cans of 16mm the postage is US$25 USPS airmail.

    If you are interested in trying some I'd go halves with you on a 400' can.
    Cheers - Andy C

    200ft Hey Andy! That would take me a while to get through! Are you able to break it up easily? I am very curious but was thinking maybe a couple of rolls first! I might put a note in the Aussie section to see if anyone is interested. I did notice that Athril bought some earlier in the year - I wonder if he would be up for it again.

    Now, as we mention the ORWO products, how do they compare?

    Hoffy, I can't comment on how it compares to ORWO as have not used Double X. I do have ORWO UN54 which I could send you a couple of 135-36 rolls.

    I have been interested in trying the Double X but was not wanting another 400ft to use on my own (same for Orwo N74). 200ft I'd get through with all of my reversal testing I do.

    I can spool off the 400' into 100' lengths without to much trouble and I would bag and can it as well before sending over.
    Cheers - Andy C
