Great film, especially in full sun with hard highlights like car chrome or polished paint. A little expensive, especially compared to FP4+ Wich is very similar. Great classic cinematic look & old school B&W grit. Spectacular film if you can justify the cost. It’s also great in Df96 monobath for easy processing & scans well too.
