Whats the highest ISO bulk film available? Anything faster than Tri-X/Hp5+? I checked B&H and Freestyle and that seems to be the best they have.

I believe you could squeeze more speed out of Delta 400 with Xtol or DDX.

Yeah I think once I finish a few more rolls of the Hp5+ I have now I'll experiment with Delta, tri-x, tmax, and maybe some legacy if I can get a hold of it and see how it all seems for speed. I was kinda wondering if there's any film with a higher box speed (delta 3200 or tmax 3200, or some other crazy film I've never heard of) available in bulk, or if 400 is the fastest you can get now, because I swear I read on a thread that T-max 3200 used to be available bulk.

I get ISO 800 out of Eastman Double-X in Diafine. The downside is that Kodak only ships it in 400' rolls.

I split the roll into 100' lengths and use either a Lloyd , Watson ,or a Soligor.

I've been curious about Double-X - if anyone has 100' sitting around (or heck, a few individual rolls) and is willing to sell it, let me know. :)

I don't mind jumping in and buying 400' at some point but I want to be sure I know and like the film first.

Brian, I can give you a few rolls (need to check how many I have left) if you accept to send me back the empty canisters.
Send me a PM.
