I've got a half-dozen rolls of FP4+ in 120 loaded up into my Jobo to run tonight when I get home from work - they're an accumulation from the past several months. The very most recent was a roll of 120 Tri-X 400, and a pair of outdated (but surprisingly functional) Polaroid Type 79 sheet film prints in my Intro to Large Format class. The Type 79 is surprisingly viable considering it is almost a decade out-of-date. Color is not terribly consistent or reliable, but the chemical pods broke as expected and coated the film evenly.
Hi everyone! Long time lurker, infrequent poster here. Had a great experience recently that fits this discussion well. I recently bit the bullet and bought the Nikon F6 with the 70-300 and 500 mm lenses. Shot my first roll of Ektachrome 100G two weekends ago and just got the slides back. I bought a brick of the 100G before discontinuation and two bricks of 100VS. Now I wish I'd bought more 100G. The blues of the sky are amazing and the colors seem, well, "right" to my amateur eyes. I think I like the 100G better than the 100VS.
Slightly off topic, but would any of our more well learned members possibly have a recommendation as to currently produced films that have a similar appearance? I like Ektar 100, and I might be wrong, but it seems slightly more saturated than 100G and slightly less saturated than 100VS. I wish I could compare it to the mythical Ektar 25, but I never got to use that film. I do have a couple of cold stored Ektar 1000 rolls but haven't found a use for them yet.
Anyway, thanks again for letting me be a part of the forum!
