I typically tell myself that one black-and-white film is as good as another, and it's mostly true. But we photographers know that it's not 100% true.bNeopan 400 was a quite different film. I already miss it because it's discontinued in 120. Actually, Neopan 1600 was a bigger blow to me, because Neopan 1600 was fine-grained enough to be an "everyday" film, unlike the 3200-speed offerings from Ilford and Kodak. We have lost so many good films I'm just numb to it. I just bought a bulk roll of HP5 and it will do me fine, but I will still dream of that weird fine-yet-prominant-somehow Neopan 400 grain.
