    Who knows seems like I won't find a 4x5 anytime soon in my price range and my demand for movements in a field camera... Blah... Haha

    It's not utterly ridiculous in 4x5 (nothing like Kodak C41!) B&H has Acros for $45.95 for 20 sheets - $2.30 a sheet. Since you say you like Delta 100, it's $32.95 for 20 sheets, $1.65 per sheet, or $104.11 for 100 sheets, $1.04 per sheet. Quite a difference if you buy the big box of Delta, not as bad (but still significantly more) compared to the similar sized box of Delta.

    FP4+ is $28.95/25 or $101.18/100
    and TMX is $82.95 for 50 sheets, which is actually still slightly less than the Acros but close enough to being the same price.

I like grain, but as stated above, I don't like looking at my images that look like George's paintings haha.

    I agree with Thomas, though I've also had great results from D3200 in 120 so I'm not going to write it off in 35mm until I try it.

    Here's one from long ago on TMZ that I've always liked, and just uploaded to my Flickr page. This is from 1997. At the time I was active in the Society for Creative Anachronism, a medieval group. This was a night time royal court held at an event our group sponsored, and lit solely by torchlight. I shot this on TMZ at 6400, developed in T-Max developer per the instructions for 12.5k. I was doing color printing too at the time and got an idea so I tried printing this outdoor torch scene on RA4 paper and filtered for this color. It almost looks like a very low light color shot. The grain is certainly there (this is a scan form the 8x10 print - and I made the King and Queen an 11x14 and presented it as a gift at a later court) but I don't think it hurts it at all:


    SCACOURT by Roger Cole, on Flickr

    I don't remember the exposure for sure but I do recall I was shooting off a tripod with my Vivitar 28-105 Series 1 wide open. It's an f/2.8 lens at 28mm and 3.5 at 105 and this was probably around 35-40mm or so. I THINK it was about 1/8th. Yeah, it was that dim.

    No I meant I don't own a 4x5 field camera... I have 2 packs of 4x5 film and a lens and some backs, but no body... That's what I mean :/

    I know what you meant. I took it that you wanted one though and would shoot Acros in it when you got it, except for the price, no?

    Well yes I think I forgot what I had posted lol

    Looks like it will be ilford all the way then, Hp4&D100

    Might suck it up Amd buy the 100 pack, after I save of course, the camera is the main issue, I basically hit my limit and funds go dry this time of year till march as work slows :/

    Sucks since I'll miss the fuji raise in cost... I think I'll shoot only B&W and Provia...maybe EKTAR? I wish color wasn't so expensive... The chemistry... Thats what holds me back with color films, I have 2 e-6 Amd 2 c-41 just waiting for me... One c-41 kit so want to amass 6-8 rolls before I kill it in one shot. And no E-6... Trying to figure out if 6 bath E-6 is viable for me as I have no experience with it.

    Blah blah I digress too much...

    Do you have an film you can't resist buying although you don't really "need" it?
    HP5. I shoot the stuff constantly. Yet while "drawing down" on my existing stash (I picked up a 50 roll pro-pack in September), I picked up another 10 roll brick while in the camera store on Wednesday. Fortunately (?), both my stash and my recent purchase share the same "process before" (January 2014)...maybe I should pick up another brick when I go back by the store again...
    An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    Try the Feeestyle E6 kit. I like it. Also, C41 kits can be had for $20 US. I get 20-30 rolls out of a kit.

    Happy to send you a box if you want. These are the small boxes that contained liquid packets (as opposed to the cooler earlier boxes with little glass bottles).

    I don't see how this stuff would still be any good but you're welcome to try it.
