    Bergger film

    I just went to B&H and bought APX-100 135-36 Agfapan Professional Black & White Print Film. I also just bought a Canon EOS 3 35mm SLR Autofocus Camera and paid over $1200 for it. Looks like I'm getting serious about this... most if not all of Williamsburg, Brooklyn is under construction for some multi-million dollar condos...there are a lot of old, half-century apartment buildings being torn down in the way of progress..and I think my first attempt to bring those images to a portfolio. Wish me luck!

    Good luck with the new camera. I'll also look forward to seeing the images. Was there a question about Bergger film in there?

    I hope you get lots of pleasure from your new purchases. The more people using film, especially B&W, the better for all of us. Have fun.

    It was in the heading "Bergger film". I was wondering this myself. Last year at the Photo EXPO at the Javits Center in New York City the US representative of the Bergger film gave me 2 rolls of 200 speed 35mm film to try out. Which I haven't. I was hoping he had an opinion about it.

    Actually, B&H had it a 10-pack of it on sale for $50. I don't know if it's compatible with the camera...

    Compatible with the camera.
    That is a good one!!! LOL

    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?
