    Wow. Everyone here is so courteous. Thanks everyone.
    Longmore: I only have 4 cameras, but all of them are Konica Minoltas!
    ROL: Thanks for the informative and thought provoking reply. That definitely shed more light into my understanding of BW photography.

    My package of Neopan 400 just arrived earlier today. After I use up all of my Neopan, I'll probably just be ordering Legacy Pro 400 since I'm a poor working student. But sad to learn that Fuji announced their discontinuation of Neopan. :[
    After doing some research for the past few days, I'll be ordering my chemicals and darkroom materials tomorrow. The chemicals are: Kodak HC110 (planning to do Dilution "H"), Kodak stop bath, kodafix, and photo-flo. I didn't intend it to be ALL Kodak, but... it just happened. haha If you guys have any advice, it would be much appreciated. Thank you!

    Welcome to APUG!

    As a life-long Kodak user, your list looks great

    I might suggest, however, that you replace the "Kodafix" with Kodak Rapid Fixer - the shorter fixing times and the option to use it without hardener are both advantages. That is assuming, of course, that there aren't shipping restrictions that get in the way.

    Ilford Rapid Fix or (in usually larger quantities) Ilford Hypam Fixer are other excellent alternatives in non-hardening rapid fixers.

    Have fun!
    Matt

    Thanks Matt. And thanks for the suggestion. I switched it up to an Ilford Rapid Fixer 500 ml and I also added a LegacyPro Powder Hypo Clearing Agent. I bought all of these chemicals from Freestyle and I live in the Los Angeles area, so there's no problem.
