    Change happened in the early/mid 90's, I went from shooting jobs on 28-35mm @F11 to 180mm @F2.8-4.

    It'll probably all come round again.

    I only have one camera that has the capabilities of shooting 1/1000 (fe), the rest of mine shoot at 1/500 (rollei,blad)

    Also think it may be that the use of tripods has seemingly fallen off materially from only a couple of decades ago. Seems the availability of faster film and shutter speeds has prompted this, sadly.

    One more on topic note: HP5+ can even be pulled to 200, 100 or 50 in Perceptol if you're in a real bind for slow film. DigitalTruth has 200 times for D-76 and DD-X, et al; 100 times for HC-110 dilution H, Rodinal 1+50; 50 in Microdol-X, etc.

    If you want real slow, strong red or green filters (3 stops) are more useful than a CPL (1.5 stops). One good coloured filter on a 100ISO film will get you only f/2.8 1/400 in full sun and woe betide he who walks into shade...

    The other thing is that Pan-F looks best at EI25 IMHO, which means f/2.8 1/125 (which is as slow as I like to shoot the RZ handheld) in full sun with a filter.

    I think part of this phenomenon is to take a step above the massive amounts of point and shoots and phone cameras that have such a small sensor they almost have limitless depth of field.
