Rollei Pan 25.

I've tried the T-Max, Tri-X, Neopan SS, FP4, HP5. I like the Rollei the best.

I put in the two films I use a distant third and fourth most, the ilford HP5+ and the 400 tmax but really I mostly use Fuji Acros and Fomapan 100. The fomapan 100 in 120 is currently my favorite film, usually in rodinal 1:75 or when my water is too hot in diafine.

I'm just glad we still have so many choices and so many that are still economical.

I have added to my arsenal recently; in the past week I have finished rolls of Kodachrome 64, Kodak Ultra Max 400 (1/2 price month out of date), Kodak Gold 200, Acros 100; fixing to soup a roll of Arista Premium 400 (Tri-X).
I am scannerless right now, so I am shooting more C-41. My SP1000 is loaded with Ferrania 400 ...

In 120:
Tri-X
FP4+, Plus-X or Fomapan 100
Portra 160NC & VC

In 35mm:
Tri-X
FP4+, Rollei 100 or Fomapan 100
Kodachrome 64

when K64 is gone, I will use portra 160VC and NC, unless I just decide to go all b+w.

I use Fuji Neopan 400 and Fuji Acros more than any other film.
I also love Ilford HP5, Rolei Super pan 200 and Lucky SHD100.
(I alway push Lucky 100 @ 2 stop and get good result)

I'm using the stock of Fuji in my freezer for now. If the 1600 never comes back I'll move on to the other brands.

This is my 2nd entry on this thread. I have made a complete change in film. Before I was using Tri-X, Delta 100 & 400 and XP2. I was trying out a lot of different films then and now I have settled on two, Tmax 100 & 400 which I use almost all the time and I think this will be my choice for a long time. Jim

Tmax 100 and Tmax 400. I want to explore color a little more, so I bought some ektar 100 and some Fuji Pro 400H.

Mostly Tri-x (Arista Premium) a bit of Plus-X (ditto), Tmax and TCN 400. Portra 400 and Ektar 100 when I delve into color.

Usually shoot Tri-x and/or HP5. Buy in bulk, and roll my own.

Last week I pulled a 150' bulk roll of techpan out of the freezer. Loaded up a about 4 cassettes to test it out.

This particular roll I liberated out of freezer at a university photo department where I used to work when they decided to go all digital. Its dated 06/1988. I know its been frozen since then.

Anyone w/ suggestions or experience souping it in Rodinal, or other dev.

135 B&W = RolleiRetro100 and RolleiRetro400 (APX is what both in fact are) and a bit Tmax100 and Orwopan400, for as long as those still last.

135 Color = Kodacolor200, but I wanna start shooting Portra160.

135 Slide = Agfa CT100 and Kodak E100G, also Kodak EDUPE rated @ 50 to x-process.

120 Color = Portra 400VC and some other expired stuff

120 Slide = Agfa 1000RS and Kodak E100G


In short: I did not add to the poll

fomapan 200. don't like it too much. the emulsion seems rather soft, easily scratches, even using leica cassettes and home developing, maning i'm pretty careful to avoid scratching. i've developed in rodinal, stand, and experienced a lot of grain.

Hmmm... Who the hell is making the poll without most popular Tri-X?
(also used by me of course)

Anyway, I've seen here amongst others Agfa APX (25, 100...) - assuming you guys are relying on own stock, what will happen, when the last roll is used?

Update

Discovered Rodinal 1:100 STAND.... (I was waiting to use the last my Xtol Stock).

Since I only have Legacy Pro 400 (Fuji Neopan 400), I still shoot that..
I am just changing the developer. I am liking the "Stand" method so far.
