    I wouldn't know. It was in a white Bergger Box with the usual info. I am tempted to try it. But I don't want to blow some potentially good street shots if I don't like or don't handle the film properly in processing. At the booth there were some beautifuly printed photos shot and printed on their products.

    I like Katz's for pastrami, but The Carnegie Deli for corned beef.

    Bergger seems up to admitting that their film is made in the Forte plant, but they insist it is their own formula, last I read. I suspect it's no different from Forte/J&C Classic/ClassicPan.

    Fortepan 200 used to be an interesting film (i last shot it in 96). Dirt cheap in my country

    Nice tonality, harsh grain in D76 clone 1+1. Contrast could get easily out of hand though.

    In the analog world there are no compatibility issues unless the size of the film is different, i.e. you cannot put 120 film in a 35mm camera but you could the other way around.

    As long as the film is 35mm it should work! But $50/10 is awfully pricey

    You bought a decent camera, and spent a good chunck of cash. The canon EOS is a very good camera, try not to use it in AUTo-Everything mode though. Auto-focus maybe a blessing but auto-exposure sometimes is not.

    Also hope you bought more than 1 roll of APX100 !

    Did you buy a developing tank/kit as well?
    In my business dealings with a few labs out of the city, I found a few that might be willing to help me develop my first attempt. I don't have the space to develop my own film...you have to remember, I live in a New York City apartment. It's 350 square feet for about $1600 a month. Three rooms, a kitchen, a living room and a bedroom. The bathroom is smaller than the stove I think...

    We'll see how I do with this. I'm a bit nervous actually...

    Ahhh...real food. Since I moved in with my girlfriend last year, I don't remember what that's like. Everything is tofu this, or sushi that...at least her father understands my pain. He just bought us a grill for 4th of July!!

    [qupte] ...good luck with your film project[/QUOTE]

    Hey, thanks...I need it.

    Actually its real easy, not expensive and everything you need to develop your own film can fit inside a milk crate sized box. Used everything you will need should cost about $50- $75 new about twice that. You might consider the C-41 films like Ilford XP2 Super. They can be processed by any consumer place that does color and you can enlarge the prints yourself at a later date.

    Actually developing your own film it's a lot easier than you think and can be done in the kitchen sink.
    All you need is to load the developing tank in the bathroom (assuming it is dark) or in a changing bag or a closet.

    I see your point regarding commercial developers and it's usually good to ask them before hand what EI index to use for your film. If the guy says "it is too contrasty" then push your film 1 stop. If he says "it is too soft" pull it 1.
    IMHO there is no such thing as a contrasty film, just contrasty evelopment.

    A sink...ah yes. I have one or two of those. No, I wouldn't want to put anything in the sinks in my brooklyn apartment. Especially film. Every see Rocky's apartment in Rocky I? Even though that takes place in Philly, that's called a deluxe suite compared t where I live!

    If I do decide to develop it on my own, I need to use the right type of paper...any recommendations
