Great Image, some problems
My preferred BW film. Strong contrast, very fine grain, beautiful when shot at box speed or pushed.
I buy extra rolls. I use an autowinder camera and about 1 time out of 4 it will rip the film out of the canister completely when loading the roll. Annoying but the images are worth the gamble.
Like going back in time..., in good way.
While I am only one roll through this offering. What I see I like very much. The blacks are very black and the whites are very white. I’m not seeing a lot of grey tones and actually like that. It has that old film look from another era–think Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon, La Dolce Vita. My first attempt was with DDX for 15min with constant gentle rotation 1+6 dilution and scanned with Epson V850. Excited for the next roll.
Great shadows scale and a new b&w feeling
I tryed this film in Street Photo in medioeval cities.
Developed in d76 I obtained a good scale of gray expecially in shadows. I alwsys fit a yellow filter on my lenses. The home water photographers use for the developer (I have never understood how) has a role on the results on traditional bw film.
