My favorite Black and White film. Smooth and contrasty.
Busan, South Korea w/Canon Canonet 19
Yes, a really gorgeous film. Nice shot. I'd not have thought of using it at night.
Im shooting my first roll of this film.. I bought 22 rolls on ebay so I have plenty of this!
There's more light in that shot than may be apparent at first because of all the street signs. I think I shot it at 1/60s at f1.9.
Modern films are so forgiving, though, that I routinely shoot 100 iso film in dark situations and get good results, but I'm not as concerned about grain in BW photos as in color and it can make for some excellent dramatic contrasts. With my Canonet I can usually handhold down to 1/30s at 1.9 without camera shake as it's a surprisingly heavy little camera.
I think it is a film best suited for night photography as well as day photography. The reciprocity characteristic of this film is such that you do not need any compensation for 2 minutes and only adding 1/2 a stop for 120 seconds to 1000 seconds. Of course, you would need a tripod. Good to try with a neutral density filter(s); one (or even 2) of those Big stops.
This film is quite precious. A bit expensive in 35 mm compared to the Ilfords and no bulk loading. Great look though. I need to try it in some bigger formats.
Below developed in Ilford Ddx.
