FPP is short-hand for the Film Photography Project: a US-based collection of projects headed up by the charismatic Mike Raso. They are most famous within the global film community for their podcast (entering it's 10th year in existence) as well as the associated School Camera Donation Program whereby donations are sought and sorted to bring analogue photography back into high schools and colleges all over the country. Not only that but Mike also runs the FPP store which sells a multitude of analogue film products all over the US and hand-rolls a fantastic selection of unique films. We are honoured to bring some of those films to the European market and hope you enjoy shooting them as much as Mike has making them!

A Double X Convert

I have to admit I put off shooting this film for a while. I always thought it looked too dirty and grungey, in retrospect, I realise now the majority of the examples were street photography with the film pushed to 800-3200 which is something I probably wouldn't do. I shot the medium format variant from Cinestill earlier this year and I fell in love with the results I got. I thought I would try a roll of double x in 35mm before taking the plunge into bulk loading.

The has a really nice tonal range and I like the fact it can be scanned flat to push its contrast in post. It's not as sharp as other low-speed films and it does have more grain than other similar films but I don't mind that, it's part of the character of the film.

I did have a slight issue with this roll. Once developed the top of each frame was ever so slightly brighter (when inverted) than the bottom making me think potentially there may have been some slight light leak when either rolling the film or the canaster was slightly damaged. This didn't matter as I was only testing the film in this smaller format and I liked the results so hopefully this stock might become my new main stock!

Cine feeling, kodak quality

Reminded me of Tri-X, with less grain but more solid contrast. Just wishing this was still in continuous production for daily use

A great all rounder

First time I've tried this film and must admit that I was impressed. As I was expecting it to be a higher contrast emulsion, I loaded into my 1950's Leica iif, as vintage lenses tend to give softer contrast than modern ones, and took it out on a local walk. I shot it at ISO 200, metering with my phone, and then looked on the Massive Dev chart for development settings. As I'm not the greatest fan of prominent grain, I opted for Ilfotec LC29 at 1+29 for 8 minutes with normal agitation. The resulting negatives looked a good density for conventional printing. I have scanned the film and the results have good detail and contrast with pleasant grain. I have printed a few of the images in the darkroom and, again, the detail and tonal range are good at 10x8". The grain is less visible than the scans but not intrusive and I would certainly use this film again.

Very useable film

This was an entirely new film to me but, given it's history in the movie industry, I was keen to try it. Although I took a meter reading at the beginning of my trip I continued to use experience with the changng light as well as taking photos straight into the light. The quality ans lattude were more than adequate for my taste and only one shot wasn't useable due to me forgetting to focus with the manual lens. Highly recommended

Really nicely surprised

I am currently putting together a large black and white comparison for 35mm in studio and was very curious to see how this compared to not only the standard black and white films in this ISO territory but also one of my favourites, Cinestill BWXX.

As expected it shared a number of qualities with the cinestill, I was really happy with the results and will definitely be using this again regularly!
