Good everyday film at a great price. I think it suits urban environments well. The grain is quite noticeable although I like this. Will definitely purchase again.
I think this will be my go to B&W film stock, affordable and reliable, good contrast.
My go to black and white film at an amazing price. Have got some of my favourite shots on this without much effort. Definitely recommend
I tried a roll of this in my Canon 300V and have mixed feelings about the results. For some things, like urban architecture it felt like it was well suited and would probably work well for street photography as the higher film speed would allow smaller, more forgiving apertures. The film is sharp and pretty high contrast, and the grain is quite noticeable, which some people may like, but I felt it didn't really suit portraits. you could maybe use it as an action film or indoors for events, but I think I would prefer my slower films for everyday shooting - heavier grain isn't for me I think! Even though it wasn't especially bright when I was shooting, I was sometimes frustrated to have to stop down due to the higher film speed, which I found creatively a bit restrictive, but I suppose that's just the experience of shooting at ISO 400. As such, I think it would be a good film for automatic, compact cameras and as a starter film. I haven't included any portrait sample shots for privacy reasons. All sample shots have no post-processing other than crop/straighten.
wellwhat can we say ,its the bagain bucket film, but you know it does the job. its a wee bit grainy and maybe a bit thin. but you can get some good results from. If like me you burn though a lot of film its a god send, cheap and good enough for the vast majority of pictures i take.
