    Nikon f 501/n2020 BW

    Hi everyone,
    I've just found in a kind of yard sale this camera, complete with a Nikkor 35-70 f 3.3 and a data-back.
    Right now I'm taking some color picture with a Fuji 100 Iso film who had to be used before 2006 just to try it out..
    Later I will go only on BW but would like to know if there is some films with a "gross grain" instead f the actual fine-ones..
    Any advices??

    The faster speed films generally have larger grain, that's what makes them faster. In B&W you can vary the size of grain to some extent by manipulating temperature or selection of developer.

    "Classic" fast films like Tri-X or HP5 are grainier than T-grain films (T-Max, Neopan).
    If you push, say, Tri-X to ISO 800 or 1600 and develop in a high acutance developer (i.e. Rodinal), you'll get a bit of grain...

    Tri-X rated at 1600 and processed in Diafine. Lovely, eerie graininess.

    The N2020 is a favorite of mine. A sleeper than can be had for peanuts. Just don't leave the batteries in it if you put it aside for a while.

    Thanks for all the good replies...

    The only problem is that I can't develope by myself as long as I don't have a darkroom...

    So the best thing is a film with a speed of 800 or more, or pushing a 400+ right?

    A darkroom is not needed to develop film.
