However, if you are going to use it in 120 format, I would go ahead and get the Adox instead of the Efke, as the spools come with a reusable storage tube. Unfortunately, Efke 400 is not anything but a rebranded modern emulsion, so 100 is your fastest emulsion of this type. Last I checked with Freestyle, they were using Agfa APX 400 for Efke 400.

    As well as Foma 200 and 400, try the 100 too. Slower but a very classic look.
    You may like Neopan 400 too. A touch more modern than HP5 etc it has stunning tonality in Xtol 1+something.

    If you miss the 1970's Tri-X look, buy a 400 foot roll of Eastman XX 5222 cine film and roll your own. It is about a 250 speed film, and has none of the fine grained improvements you seem to dislike in the newer Tri-X emulsions. Use Beutler's or Stoeckler's developer and you will have all the sharp, grainy and punchy look you want.
    I just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.

    Tri-X 400 is a great film but so is T-max 400. Maybe different but both are great!

    Here are a couple of examples of what Eastman 5222 can look like. Both frames developed for about 7 minutes in D-76 1+1 at 75F. Printed on Arista.EDU Ultra RC, variable contrast paper, then scanned on an ancient flatbed scanner.

    Good 'Ole Tri-X

    The backing used to be thinner. I recently found some ancient rolls of 120still sealed up and I just proccessed some of it. WoW! Still happening. I quickly rememberd how fragile the film used to be but after 18 years this stuff still rocks! The negatives are lovely. HP-5 is a good film and I have found it to be extremely versitile. Try exposing it at ASA 100 (off the charts)and process in HC110 in a dilution "H" (1:1 of dilution B) for 4-1/2 min at 20C with just sufficient volumn to fill the film tank. Stop developement using water, letting it coast, then fix it. You will be delighted, especially if you are shooting landscape in clear sky at a high sun angle.

    Neopan 400 is for me as close as I can get to the "old Tri-X" look when developed in Rodinal 1:50
