Contrasty!

This is an ace film, but very contrasty. So check your metering - the blacks can be very black!
I've always found it gives a softened edge to contrasty areas which at first looks like a lack of definition, but on closer look you can still see lots of detail. But overall it's got quite a nice feel to it.

A real Retro look!

I recently went to stay with my great friend, Jim Graves, for my birthday weekend, and we shot a fair amount of film over a few days. I started this roll of Retro 400s on Saturday in Liverpool, and finished it the following afternoon in Buxton, Derbyshire.
I shot it in my Mamiyaflex C2 TLR, and the results speak for themselves, though I would add that I tend to go with a very slight over exposure with this film..a quarter to half a stop usually works well for me. I developed it in Rodinal 1+50 for 22 mins (minimal agitation) at 20°c.
If you've not tried Retro 400s, why not give it a try?...it's formulated to cut through the haze of summer, and it really does!

A film that seems to prefer good light

I've not shot a great deal of this film, but from what I can see it prefers good light rather than the more challenging, lower light situations. I've got a couple more rolls to work with, but I'll probably wait until we have a brighter day.

Not great for detail images with high dynamic range

I've seen this film used to great effect in silhouette, street and arty geometric shots, but it totally crushes the shadows and is really contrasty. It gives a dark, almost foreboding and menacing feel to the images. It happened to be the roll inside my Pentax when I bought it, so I thought I'd try it for a wedding - won't be doing that again - it just looked totally wrong. It was extremely difficult to develop as well - the compromise was made to retain the highlights and fortunately I was able to rescue some of the shadow detail in Lightroom - sample images to show before and after.

My favourite B&W film at the moment

I tried this film as an alternative to HP5 - wow, what a difference. I just love the fine grain, good tone range and overall feel. The accompanying shots were developed in good old Rodinal and scanned at 1200dpi.
