    Ilford FP4+ works just as well for me, developed in D-76 1:1 just like Plus-X. I used Plus-X for many years in 35mm and 120. Both films give me negatives that are like beautiful little jewels. I don't care for T-Max 100 so much.

    There are two different Neopan 100 films. Acros is generally available and is a new tech type film, something like TMax 100.

    Then there is Neopan 100 SS, an older type, which is available here and there. There was some talk of it being discontinued, but it's hard to know. It was a film that Barry Thornton liked.

    Some vendors seem to have difficulty in distinguishing the two from each other.

    Tmax 100 is a wonderful film. Those who say it is too contrasty, not contrasty enough or that it sucks (I'm not kidding I've read that on here) are simply not using it properly.

    But it is a different kind of film than Plus-X (although not quite as different as it once was given the evolution of so-called traditional films), not a replacement.

    If someone wants to replace Plus-X I strongly suggest FP4+, especially in large format.
