    Life After 120 PXP

    Rats... I am down to my last 5-pack of 120 PXP.

    I am curious as to what others using this film have chosen as a replacement. With just a touch of under-exposure / over-development* I am able to get a punchy print: rich blacks and crisp whites.

    From posts in the gallery it looks like Fuji Neopan 100 might be the best replacement for me... ?

    Fomapan 100 is a nice film as well.

    Fuji Neopan 100 always works for me.

    Fplus, Tri-x or for colour the new porta. That's all I need.

    FP4 Plus has been my go-to ISO 125 film since it came out, pretty much. As much as I like Plus-X I always seemed to head back to the Ilford. You might have to tweak your exposure and development regimen a bit but what you want should be there.

    Fomapan 100 has beautiful tonality to my eyes, but it is grainy. Still, it is worth experimenting with.

    I'm not as knowledgeable about Neopan but the few times I have used it, I have liked it.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    Thanks all! I hadn't really considered the Fomapan 100. I will definitely give it a try as well as the Neopan 100. Anyone have a starting dev time for the Fomapan 100 in Xtol 1:1 ?

    E.I. 100 Around 8:00 minutes (Xtol 1+1) but the film "rocks" in Rodinal 1+50. E.I. 80 for 7:30 minutes.
    Then Fomapan 100 is close to the APX 100 - Rodinal combination. Recommended.

    Tmax100?

    I used Tmax100 in the past and found it was too contrasty and not worth the effort, especially with the new Tmax400. How do others feel about this film?
