Looks like a decent film. Nothing really seems sharp to me in the pix, though. I just did a portfolio of 8x12s from HP5, and they are plenty sharp. Grainy, but sharp grainy, even at an 8x enlargement from pushed film in Ilfotec HC 1:63 (albeit only 1/2 stop push). Maybe a shutter speed issue, or some other technical thing, or the scan. With Arista Premium at $2.20 per 36-exposure roll, I don't see the point in using it based on the examples. Then again, these are scanned negatives adjusted by a distant stranger, so it is hard to know exactly what they tell us. I was excited when it came out, thinking that it was just rebadged HP5, but I tested a roll and it obviously was not. I like it, but as I said, would not buy it when I can get Tri-X for $2.20 per roll of 36.
