Ten rolls of mixed 120 Ilford FP4+ and HP5+. Wonderful stuff.
All of the processing stars (variables) must be coincidently aligned in my darkroom because I get absolutely gorgeous b&w negatives by exposing at Ilford's box speed and developing at the Ilford-recommended time/temp/agitation. Being able to leverage Iford's testing in this way is incredibly convenient as the recommended time for both of the above in D-76 (1+1) is the same 11 minutes at 68F/20C.
And the resulting negatives end up being quite beautiful objects in and of themselves. Heck, maybe I should simply frame those and be done with it??
It also occurs to me that this would be an excellent thread for any post-Kodak film operation bidders to periodically check out. Especially if we could get everyone to detail their film usage here...
"When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."

Most recently I am shooting Ilford FP4+ 125 black and white, Efke KB25 (we all know where that is going), Kodak Gold 100 (although I will need to re-order some of this soon as I am down to my last 25 rolls.) These are my primary films right now.
I am also experimenting with Ilford Delta Pro 3200 and Kodak P3200 black and white films as an alternative to my ISO 400 films. I wish this was available in bulk rolls. I'm not sure how this will work out but I am leaning towards Ilford's film right now since it is available in 120 and Kodak is not.
Finally, I just loaded up a couple of rolls of Eastman Double-X 5222 cine film to experiment with in my Zeiss Ikon Contaflex.
There is a birthday party coming up so I will likely shoot 5 or 6 rolls of Kodak Portra 400 120 along with a couple rolls of Delta Pro 3200 in my Pentax 645Nii, which is my main party camera.
