I ran a roll of this film through in Olympus OM-10. Results were good and grain is very pleasing. I did not do any exposure compensation I just stuck with the aperture priority.
One of two Favorite B&W Films
This film is a good deal (cheaper than most other Ilford and Kodak B&W films) and is a great option for a slower speed film. 35mm version has noticeable but pleasing grain. In 120 the grain is hardly noticeable when exposed properly. It has beautiful tones and good contrast at box speed.
Average, but better than Kodak b&w
I just started shooting film again in 2020 and I’ve been making the rounds of various B&W films. So far, Ilford FP4 is the runner up to my current favorite Bergger. The Ilford results were typical of what I remember from 35 years ago when I was developing my own film and prints. Grain structure was good and contrast was average. I love contrasty images, so average contrast is a bit of a disappointment.
But I was more disappointed with Tri-X and TMax. I didn’t particularly like these films 35 years ago, but they seem even more disappointing now. But most disappointing was the Fuji Acros II, which everyone told me I would love, but I hated the dull, “muddy” images.
