I've been everywhere ooooohhh yeaahhhh still I'm standing tall.
Loved the tonality!-grain wasn't too bad in Presycycol EF in 120 format and it was great with PMK in 4x5. 35mm was grainy but nice tones. Sad too see it go (and the 200-that was a big favourite for 4x5) but I'm going to buy a few more boxes while I can (Classicpan was rebadged Fortepan BTW).
"He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
Tonality is beautiful, grain, always visible, is also beautiful.
Lowest speed 400 speed film I've ever used.
Must be made for warmtone papers, not a very good film, technically, but god damn is it beautiful.
D76 1:1, this is one of very few films I'll actually put in the stuff.
This is really one of the most unique films I've seen as far as the tonality goes. I really loved the stuff in sheet film, Central Camera in Chicago has a bunch of it left over in 4x5, the 200 also.
I loved working with Forte 400/Classicpan 400 because it had old school grain and great tonality plus it was cheap. I processed with HC110 Dil B. for 7.5 min and I managed to expose anywhere from 320 down to 200 ISO without changing the developing. The other thing was I only used a UV filter on my lenses as yellow and orange will send it into near infrared country.
