I find B&H and Adorama very competitive on film prices, especially on the popular stuff.

I'm experimenting, but currently I'm shooting Delta 100, HP5+, and Tri-X 400. Also have some Delta 3200 lying around and a roll of Portra 800.

My dad used to shoot crap tons of Ektachrome back in the early 90s. Always loved the look of that stuff.

On another note, I just developed my first roll of film ever today. Delta 100 in T-Max for 7 minutes. Looks pretty good. It wasn't as hard/nerve-wracking as I thought it would be. Currently scanning the negs on my crappy HP scanner to see how they turned out and see if I need to redo the assignment.

If you don't already have one, pick up an enlarger. I see 35mm ones go for $25 or less occasionally on craigslist. It'll give you much better prints than an inkjet.

Adorama usually has the best prices.

Try Neopan Acros, Delta 100, HP5+, and Tri-X. If you're into color, all of fuji's E-6 films are excellent, as is Kodak portra and ektachrome. Ektar isn't bad, but it's definitely not my favorite. I'd usually rather shoot velvia 100f if I want anything that saturated.


I think I need to make some sort of handle for this Speed Graphic. It's like trying to hold onto a cinderblock.

Thanks, I'll check them out smile.gif

This is just for kicks. We have like ten Besler 4x5 enlargers in our studio.

EDIT: Here're the negs. I apologize for the crappy scan, but like I said this is just for the purposes of showing the world that I know how to develop film now... Looks much better in person.

I won't say I'm a loyalist, but I only really use 2 films consistently -- Portra 400 and Delta 400. Porta in the NC variant (good luck finding any) has that look that so many digital shooters chase. It's not for everyone, but as the name would suggest, it is, far and away, the best color film for portraiture. I'm not a fan of Fuji films, although Provia 400X is probably the exception to that. It's also very expensive to shoot in anything but 35mm, mostly because labs charge insane prices around here to mount chromes.

Sub, have you ever tried fuji astia? It look is quite similar to the old portra nc emulsions, but it's E6 process.

Astia looks a little bit more like the VC emulstion, a tad too saturated and overly contrasty, just like most other Fuji films. Provia is about as subdued as their line gets, which is why I sort of enjoy it.

That 1DIV a few pages back, so ugly though... Need money... I think I'll stick with the 5DII and get it later.

? Astia has lower saturation and less contrast than Provia. Maybe you're thinking of Velvia 100f?

Maybe. In any case, all that picture did was remind me how much I hate FujiPro. So awful.
