    Shanghai GP3 - pleasantly surprised

    I have had a bunch of this for some time and recently shot about 7 rolls this last week with a Mamiya C220 and 80/2.8 M-S lens.

    I had some D-76 lying around so I did a quick soup.

    I was really quite pleased with the nature of the - the tones were really, really nice.

    Here's some examples:

    Has anyone else used this film?

    If so, what have been your experiences?

    Do you have a developer that you prefer?

    Thanks,

    Covellite

    Nice results. I confess I have a batch of unused rolls which I haven't yet got round to using but I will give them a go. There have been a number of posts on here about this film, with rather mixed views. If you do a search on here, you should find them. It may be they contain some suggestions or comments about other developers.

    I have used it, I have a few rolls left. I liked it in rodinal and diafine. But it is too damn curly! It is a lot better than lucky at least.

    This is good to read. I picked up a few rolls in China and just finished one this past weekend...looking forward to the results even more now!

    just developed a roll pushed to 400. Starting point looks like 15.5 minutes microphen stock, 30 sec initial agitation then 3 per minute.results are good.
    This post has only been put up for reference.

    I've souped it in Caffenol, rated at EI160, and its a very positive experience. Grain? yes, but pleasing structure. Subtle tonal gradation, pretty good dynamic range. The main problem is the black backing paper, makes it difficult to use in red window cameras.
