    Freestyle Legacy Pro 100 = Acros 100?

    Did anybody ever come to a conclusion about whether FS's new Legacy Pro 100 is Acros 100 or Neopan SS? I ask because I absolutely love Acros 100 in 120 format, but I'm hoping I could get some in 35mm at the super cheap FS prices to try out...

    We had a topic about it in Product availability, and most people seem to be leaning towards Acros. We'll likely know when we get the development data in a week or two, the film's scheduled to be available from the 20th I think.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Yeah, we're all going to have to buy some, load up the cameras and go out and shoot globs of it. We'll then have to go into our darkrooms, dev it and then make prints. I can't think of a bigger waste of my day!

    There is a mile of difference between Neopan SS and Neopan Acros, as far as granularity goes. Neopan SS has much more grain. Two rolls tested would tell you immediately.

    Some have concluded that it's Acros in other threads. However it hasn't shipped yet and there are no development times, so the hard evidence is spotty.

    Actually I think that Neopan SS is so rare and unknown in the US that people don't know it's a possible candidate for the Legacy film, so that and a strong desire for inexpensive Acros are at play.

    One good test is that Acros has great reciprocity. Exposures out to 2 minutes need no adjustment. This would be a good test as well.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Needless to say, I'm really hoping it's Acros. I'm tired of paying $5/roll for my favorite films.

    If they are your favorite film, maybe there is good reason they are $5 a roll?

    The developing times have been posted already at the Freestyle site. The dev times for both films in D76 1:1 are the same as acros and neopan 400.

    Must have been posted today. I checked before I posted this morning. Here's a readable comparison. No times are posted for Neopan SS on the Freestyle chart.
