    Here they're open about it
    As I said they state different in their german version. Whether there is a mistake behind it or a kind of beating around the bush that went astray, I don't like that.

    Full range of film means you need traditional grain 100-ish speed back, bring back plus x on special runs for fun!

    I was never too impressed by plus X, though I've only shot about to Propac's worth of 120, I was told that Eastman Double-X movie stock film is similar to plus X, however I don't think it looks the same, but I very much love – and I am about to special order some, sadly it only comes in 35mm.

    I also like double X because it is a 200-250 ASA film so it's a little more versatile in different lighting situations.

    I've always liked Plus-X, and I think it works well for me.

    I'll be interested to see if Stone agrees

    Well as it's been pointed out to me many times recently, you can FIX anything in the printing process...

    Of all the shots that I ever took on plus X, there was only one roll that I was really happy with, and it happened to be at the end of the day with the light from the side of the sky really illuminated and gave good highlights.

    This is it, they weren't supposed to be more than vacation shots so my apologies if they aren't completely artistic...

    PS I completely understand your hint Matt, so I look forward to whatever it is, however knowing that it's a postcard I guess it's probably not going to be in the "style" that I am known for ...

    I would have thought that the closest thing to Plus-x in the MP range would have been MP Plus-X, not Double-x, but I know they are all a bit different, and it depends on what qualities you are comparing. I shot about 800 feet of Double-X back when you could still find short ends. It's nice, to me it seemed closest to the older tri-x, like the the tri-x I shot in the early 80's. They have improved away a little of it's character since then. Anyway I would love to see them do something that would be very easy to do: 35mm 36exp. Factory loads of MP stock. It would be great to see some of those other emulsions out there, easy to get and use.

    Well they still make it in 400' cans, and rakpak? Sells re-rolled spools of it here, just search.

    i have always liked plus x, and have been lucky to buy a suitcase full of plus x
    when it became available ( and i am still nibbling my way through it ) it has a nice feel to it
    not as slow and grainless as pan x and not as nosograinless as tr ix ... and it likes coffee and looks beautiful when processed in sprint developer.

    hi stone

    have never bought any of
    the MP films to shoot in my 35 because dealing with 400 feet of film can be
    well, to put it mildly .. a pain ...

    I would agree. I have about 300' of Double X left from a 400' spool and find it much more as you describe than like Plus-X.

    I think about 300' would fit in the Alden200 bulk loader? I'll find out soon
