    Oh sure... you say that now.

    But soon enough you'll be sneaking about late at night with Tri-X or HP5+ set to 1600 and dunking it into Rodinal for that golf-ball sized grain !

    Pan-F+ is probably my favorite film "lookwise." I'm not smart enough to explain why, I just know it's a devil to print and when I do it right it looks nice. I wish it came in 4x5.

    I get my film from 7Dayshop.com but I can heartily recommend RK photographic for your paper. They mistakenly sent (and charged) me a box of 50 16x20 Ilford MGIV RC (instead of 16x12). Anyway, rather than send it back, they said I could keep the 16x20 and pay only for 16x12! They were the cheapest by quite a margin and also very quick. Welcome back BTW.

    Adox CMS20 in HC110 is rated at EI6. So there you go. Though I think it's only available in 35mm. And it should be available at Ag Photographic.

    I'm testing a bunch of low-to-medium speed films (in 35mm) at the moment, and I love the look of Efke KB25. (some samples in Rodinal here)

    I've heard great things about Kodak Plus-X, so it may be worth it to at least try a roll or two. Otherwise, I'm glad PanF+ is getting a lot of good recommendations on this thread. I'm testing it and FP4+ next.

    I am interested in very slow films of 'times gone past'
    Does anyone know of the slowest film made these days?
    I have used delta and whilst its a great film, its 'not the look I am after'
    Hard to put my finger on but (for now) I am trying to reproduce old pictures and experience the 'fun' of past photographers if that makes sense?

    I will prob try films in 35mm first before 120 ( cost!).

    120 is cheaper by the roll though not by the shot. I actually prefer the fact that it takes fewer shots to finish a 120 roll. And those big negatives are great, since you effectively enlarge the grain less MF appears quite a bit smoother when printed.

    Alan, tell your wife the LF camera just followed you home.

    Or, do as some of us do and have so many cameras that it takes a while for the wives to realize there is a new camera.
