    I've just started testing this film and it appears to respond greatly to expansion development unlike any film I've ever used ('ceptin' maybe PCF4125). Given its cost, fine grain, low speed, and different spectral response, I suspect it will become a favorite.

    Jason, I don't know if you should be using the terms "beats" and "harsh mistress" in the same sentence.

    i don't really choose a particular film, i just grab what i happen to have on hand
    or whatever xpired film is selling (buy from a friend) .
    sometimes it is foma 400, or tmax 100/400, sometimes its trix, plus x, or adox.
    i kind of like grain and stain so i process all my film in print developer.

    I'm trying some Efke 25 for matchbox pinhole w/ 35mm film. I have always preferred TMX and TMY for my work. Though it has been a while since I have tried anything otherwise. Might experiment a little this year or next. but for now, it's the good old standby.
    Thank you.

    For me any film with large grain, its like the thumb print of "Im not digital" for me these include, Kodak HIE, Kodak TMZ, Ilford Delta 3200, Agfa RS 1000, 3M Scotch 1000,
    I also loved Kodak EIR, Kodak kodachrome, Polaroid Polachrome, polapan and polablue 35mm instant, Polaroid 665, type 55 and Sx-70 as digital is never going to replicate them.

    have you heard that HIE is discontinued?
    Theory: you understand why it should work but it doesn't
    Practice: it works but you have no idea how
    Here theory and practice meet, things don't work and I don't know why

    hahaha along with almost everything else i listed! I bought 800 odd rolls of HIE when it went out of production. I feel like the Indian prince in Charlie and the chocolate factory (Johnny Depp version).

    I like Tri-x 35mm in Rodinal stand developed for a grainy look.

    I've become a big fan of APX 100. It is sharp and has an excellent tonal range. I don't find it grainy even though it's not a T-grain film.

    I love ADOX 100 in 4x5. Why? Because I have tons of it and I have spent the time to figure out how to get what I want out of it. Oh ya and it was REALLY cheap too. My second choices are FP$ (not a typo) and Ilford Ortho.

    cruel ... very cruel


    I've got a bunch in the freezer now from the last shipment at my local film stockist in Australia. Love being able to get images like this

    what to do after that?
