This film has a very unique look – it has high contrast, rich charcoal looking blacks, and with medium exposure latitude.  It’s a film you never want to underexpose which will result in a muddy look with no shadow detail –  so be sure to meter for the shadows.  Its ideal for street photography and can be a good portrait film as well.

Too much contrast, grainy and not a good film

I found the film to have way too much contrast with very poor shadow details. The dark areas of your scene will come out as solid chunks of black and light/dark greys are dirty and noisy. Overall a lot of grain and though I love film grain the grain on this one is just too distracting.

It has potential. I have to shoot more of it and do some actual darkroom prints. But it’s a fun film.
