Here reporting from Holland. (yes the small country that has Amsterdam in it )
Since yesterday i bought an 1994 Canon EOS 5 with an canon 28-105. Also from 1994. I am the 2th owner. The feel and looks of the cam is just great. The sounds etc. Can't really explain it. I want to shoot B/W with it. Cos i like it more then color.
First i have to buy some films cos you can't buy them at the local stores here. Wich sucks
Just seen there was a dutch section to
Just asking. Wich B/W film is good for landscapes? As i have seen that there are a lot of different films out there.

Its not just amsterdam. You should try Utrecht (only 45min max from AMSt). And there are a lot of old towns with great old buildings. I tried Vreeswijk (little village near my) and thats great at night.

Nieuwegein, i.e. Utrecht?
Any of the regular B&W films is fine for landscape.
I like Kodak T-Max myself, but Ilford too makes very fine film.
Well come aboard there Mr.cannon,all the B&W films are good but some I like better.
Welcome Mr. Canon. You can't go wrong with the Ilford line of B&W products.
