This is such a great film for moody, atmospheric street and architectural photography. I liked it less for portraits but that is personal taste; it will be my film of choice on any trip to a city. I was so impressed by the level of detail captured by this film in conjuction with my canon eos 300 and a nifty fifty. It was also a cinch to develop at home with exciting results.
Knew this film was high contrast straight out the gate but thought I’d push it one stop regardless. Happy with the results; nice versatile film although my street photography skills need a lot of work!
So, disclaimer first. This is the first film I've shot and developed in 35 years using a new (used) camera, new dev kit and a new scanner. Now the apology. I had planned to process two rolls of FP4, I ended up with two reels of Street Candy but my head was still in FP4, so I processed the film in FX-39 II which, as anyone can see, brought out a staggering amount of grain in the film. Shots were from a family holiday, some taken by my ten year old and then a bunch of randoms to finish off the roll.
So firstly, this is a very generous roll of film. There were around 44 shots in the canister, a Brucie bonus which also had a downside. In the changing bag the film was very easy to get on a reel, however I found I still had a foot of film when it stopped loading. Assuming I'd cocked up I clipped the film and added it to a second reel. Afterwards it was obvious reel 1 was full and reel 2 had around 7 shots and a long tail on it. In camera, I noticed it had wound past 36 and panicked as it just didn't seem to have an end. Rewinding to the canister was hard work, I thought perhaps I'd broken something - it was just incredibly full. The canister itself was a pain to get open, used to HP5 and FP4 in the past I imagined it would just pop open, but I ended up wrecking the canister lid with pliers and scissors to get it open. Film intact
Developed as HP5 using high acutance FX-39 II, everything went fine and the negs dried pretty well, little dust and flat for the first 3/4 - a little curly at the end. New to scanning so probably could be done better. I tried not to adjust contrast etc but each frame was scanned with some exposure changes. As you can see there is an amazing amount of grain but the film still renders a good range from black to white. Dark areas still had detail in them and focus seems to have been pretty sharp.
So, all in all I am pleased with the film, just me that needs sorting out. Another roll on the way...
I messed this up, or so I thought. After I loaded this film I neglected to change the iso dial for the camera’s meter, leaving it at 100, and I only noticed near the end of the roll. The lab pulled it and I was really happy with the results. Lots of detail throughout. I’ll be using this a lot more in future. @misterjabsticks
