    I cant remember what we were given as bulk load back at school (APX maybe?), but the first film I used with my new Mamiya about 4 years ago was Fuji Neopan Acros 100

    Plus-X or Tri-X. This was HS photo class and we were given "outdoor or indoor" film to use from bulk rolls. I had everything backwards in class: f/22 was the bigger aperture as it was the bigger number, the wrong film was in the camera and set at the wrong ISO.

    I took out our little rangefinder cameras onan outing club ski trip to the Adirondacks and did everything wrong! Those first two rolls of film were so bad--overexposed and leprosy all over the film from missloading on the SS reels. I still have them to remind me that things can always get worse!

    I initially used Ilford XP2 as my B&W film but my first "real" B&W film was T-Max 100.

    It was the film my lecturer used, and handed out to the class when we first used medium format about one year ago exactly.
