    I recently bought some Tura 150 film to play with. Now, here's where the rest of you start shaking, your heads...

    [color=green]I'm a complete greenhorn when it comes to bw film. Shot my first roll this past summer and achieved only marginal results. I purchased the Tura film, mostly because it was cheap.[/color]

    ...now for the fun...Being that I don't develop my film (its a time and money thing; not lack of desire) can this be processed C-41? Or does it require another process?

    [color=darkblue]Does anyone have experience with the stuff and can you give me some pointers???[/color]

    Hello there,

    Tura 150 is like Agfa 100 and should be rated at 100 ISO (nominal speed) It's a traditional B&W film and must be developed in a B&W dev such as Rodinal etc. Try and find a good lab that does B&W development and printing.

    Good luck

    How does the film shape up? Fine, grainy, etc. Did you like using it?

    Does it expose normally for 100 asa?

    Thanks for input.

    Well, I never used Tura but did use Agfa 100. Very good film, crisp. Not very grainy. Depends on the developer a bit. I should rate the film as ISO 100 to start with.

    Hi Joeyk 49
    I have used Tura P150 with good results. Have tested 2 developers, Rodinal and Kodak X-tol. Both work well, but the Rodinal tends to give grainy results if there is a slight variation in temp and/or agitation. But when everything goes as planned, the results are very good. The film then delivers very good tonality and fine grain (especially X-tol).

    I made tests for the film (zonesystem) and my EI is 50 asa. I can only recommend the film.
