    Like RalphLambrect, Tmax400 means you can have your cake and eat it too. It's just about the fastest 400 speed film, with its short toe it tolerates underexposure well, and its grain and sharpness are comparable to Plus-X. I'm close to just shooting tmax400 in every format, for everything. I kind of have a love affair with Neopan 400 but now that's gone in medium format.
    f/22 and be there.

    Also must consider the use of filters. Yea you can shoot FP4 in bright sunny conditions, but throw an orange and a polarizer filter on and your lens and it eats up stops quick. Also, you wouldn't choose a 400 speed film to shoot portraits in bright conditions where you'll be using f/4, f/5.6.

    I used to find a 400 speed film perfect for everything hand holdable, and it really is besides in blaring sunlight. But lately I'm really falling in love with FP4 and am making it work no matter what I have to do, even if it means using a tripod most of the time. I'm still trying to replace Neopan 400. I think I'm gonna give TMY-2 another try. If I can get TMY-2 to work, atleast in low-light I'll be set with FP4 and TMY-2 for everything I personally encounter photographically.

    I think, you'll find TMY-2 to be a good choice. Let us know!

    I agree, and it even works with multiple cameras for 35mm. In some cases, it costs less than interchangeable MF backs.

    I have four Hasselblad backs:
    Color C-41 160 and 400
    Black & White 125 and 400
    so I have to check the back before I shoot so the exposure is set correctly.

    Four 35mm one silver Nikon for 400 Color and a black Nikon for black& white.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
