mikendawn, badmouthing films made by anyone but Kodak, Iflord or Fuji is well spread exercise, especially when its bulk film on PET base and goes ~ 40/1 roll - 36 frames. Probably its more than well priced for amateurs
The grain complain.. - so far nobody proved that its not due to operator's error...
The absence of anti-halation backing in Polypan F might be a big deal for some folks, ruin the perfect shot, lower the sharpness...
Looks like generally people prefer film coated on cellulose acetate, since if You are using auto-everything camera this film base might tear while keeping Your camera transport gear safe. However, the fact that cellulose acetate irreversibly degrade after ~ 50 years @ 65F (18C) and 50% relative humidity, release acetic acid and shrink in advanced stage as much as 10% is not big deal for some folks...
If I am not mistaken, all consumer films in format 135 or 120 by Kodak, Ilford, Fuji and some others are cellulose acetate.
Looks like the safety of auto-everything's plastic cameras more important than images.
