I use Ilford delta 400 a lot of the time and I love that film. I also like Kodak Tmax 400.

I was raised on a farm where all they grew was Tri-X, but around 15 years ago I jumped ship to XP-2. But now...since I long since gave up developing at home, I only have labs reachable by mail, plus my damn eyes... so it's mostly digital and auto focus. Not the same by a long shot from back in the day when 4 or 5 of us die hard fotogs would spend near 8 hours in the lab working the soup and drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon.

I used to use a lot of XP2 Super in my F-1 cameras. Has a pretty neutral base mask (as opposed to Kodak C-41 b&w, which is amber), so it scans very well, and is easy to print in a traditional darkroom too.

For color, I used to shoot a lot of Fuji: Press 400, Superia 400, NPS, NPC, NPH. And some Kodak: Portra 160, Ektar 100.

Michael, I've never heard of this film. Is it still available in Thailand? Can't seem to find a source here in the States. Kodak made a film by that name in the late 1990's. Would be interested in trying some.

Best,

Hi Tim, it's a film that is marketed by Kodak to stay fresh in hot climates, I have the link to Kodak's info on my home computer( I'm on my phone now). To take a look at its 'look' you can look at this thread here, everything was shot on Kodak Pro Image 100 with my 35mm Zeiss distagon.

I'll send you the link to Kodak's information sheet once I get home.

Cheers,
Michael

I always suspected PBR could develop film. That stuff is amazing and so versatile.

Joe,
If you get to Calgary, I could give you a few rolls of different films to try out.

can't get Ektachrome anymore, but Provia is why I kept my film cameras... Portra and TMY2 is a nice incentive too

bought 2 rolls of xp2 today...11 bucks each...
to process and scan (36exp) is 23 bucks or 28 if you want higher res scans...kind of a rip off on that last bit.
