There's some great shots in this thread. I love the look of Acros. I have a roll right now in my R2A. I've just started doing my own development with D76, but I'll have to try some others suggested here. I love that creamy look. Any suggestions?

Wow, those photos are almost a year old. I need to load some Acros 100 into my Rollei again soon.
Melanie, I like your Rollei / Acros shots very much. What developer did you use?

Most of the photos on my Flickr links above show in the title which developer I used, and the dilution, time and temp.

I was passing Silverprint today so I bought a few rolls. Will hopefully be shooting some and processing in Xtol over the weekend.

I had these developed by a lab, so unfortunately I don't know.

I'll be finishing up my first test roll tomorrow (weather willing) I have ID-11 mixed up so will likely run it in that.

Has anybody had experience with Acros in Ilfosol S?

I've just shot my first roll of 120 Acros and planned to develop it in Ilfosol S, but upon seeing the results here I'm very tempted to try it with Xtol.

I agree, wonderful film ... my favorite is still Delta 100 or 400, but Acros 100 is undoubtedly among the top, whether 135 or 120.

Neopan Acros 100 here (120 though), Ilford DDX :

Are you rating it at 100 or 80?

I bet Acros would look smashing in divided D76 (if the emulsion is thick enough to soak up enough developer)

thanks,

I finally got around to shooting a couple of rolls of this over the weekend. The weather was very overcast, but still bright enough to use it at box speed. My conclusion is that I now have a new favourite film, processed in Xtol it looks absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to try it in 120 format.

I think in this case it works well with those highlights, yes. I also think if you had shortened the time, or closed down to compensate for the highlights you would have lost too much shadow detail.

I shot a couple rolls of Acros in my Hasselblad last night up around Point Bonita (special night access!) and then around the Marin headlands until about midnight (for those who are not San Franciso locals, this is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation just north of the Golden Gate Bridge). Interesting, swirling high level fog with some cool looking light "pollution" on the horizons and such. 4-6 minutes exposures. Might be interesting. Will post images later.

Where do you apply for 'special night access'?
looking forward to the images.

First time reading this post, but you guys have really got me curious now.

I have to go buy a few rolls of this to try. I may like the look of this better than FP4 Plus.


Magus - Since we normally have common tastes in lenses. What did you think of it?

I'm feeling bad due to my tardy response as far as Acros goes. I started this thread, got some great responses/advice and went out to buy three rolls of it, 35mm, to give it a whirl....I still haven't!!

I've been planning to get some night images of suburban landscapes with it but still haven't had the time...or rather set the time aside.

I will get this underway and post my results and thoughts too...a promise as much to myself as anyone else! I've been enjoying viewing other peoples results recently though and its this that has hardened my resolve to get off my backside.

I find FP4+ or Pan F pretty hard to beat, sometimes (usually in the midst of an 11 minute development cycle when the sun is shining and the birds twittering out the window) I wonder why I even bother trying others to tell the truth, but I do love to play. I've been shooting the traditional Ilford films almost exclusively for the last two years and developing them (for the most part) in either HC-110b, ID-11 or Microphen. I get beautiful results from these three films in these developers, lately shooting PanF/FP4+ about 50/50. I tend to mostly shoot HP5 in the dreary winter light here, which has finally left us for a few weeks. I get all the shadow detail I could want, and since grain and I have finally come to terms with each other I really shouldn't be wanting more. But as I said I like (love?) to play, and the experimentation is part of the game for me. I just pulled some Plus-X out of the freezer today, and ran a roll of Forte 400 shot at 100 and one of FP4+ shot at 50 today. The Forte was an experiment looking at grain and the FP4 was a dumb mistake. Fortune smiled on me tho- the one potentially good shot from the FP4 roll seems to have benefited from the pull. The next roll of ACROS is loaded up, but I think this old dog shall remain with his 'traditional' technology films for a while longer. Had I stumbled upon ACROS while shooting in the studio I bet I'd have loved it. Better shadow detail outdoors than Delta 100, so under tungsten light I bet it would be fantastic- that combined with the great reciprocity would have saved me a lot of time- the average exposure with the 810 on my last project was around 4 minutes.

..i've an emotional affinity for the Neopans, there is something about the packaging, the green and white box, the ease with which the plastic cylinder opens, and the naming of each..SS..ACROS...PRESTO...SUPERPRESTO..
i'm going to stick with the Neopans for a while..1300 feet in the freezer, and a warm roll of ACROS in the loader...and just this past evening shot my first ever roll of 120 ACROS thru a new/used 500C/M down at the TorpedoWharf under the GGB, (see #54 above), a good site for me to return to for consistency of light and subject, while i try to get a handle on exposure time, before moving on to other sites and subjects...so ACROS it is, just a couple months ago it was SS with no desire what so ever to try ACROS, because it was "modern", and now that i've tried it...i've got this attachment to it, an inexplicable affinity

No, shadows are certainly not the same- I was looking at a print of a big white panel truck, and there is a lovely gentle gradation of very light tones through the white where the siding is slightly rippled. This is what I was thinking about- like what's going on in the shirt at right in your image.
(nice layering by the way, how long did that take in Photoshop? )

I'll see if I can get that print scanned tonight.

Fuji Neopan/Acros 100 is my new best friend for my 35mm cams and my TLR loves 400.
Beautiful blacks...and creamy whites...just printed some shots today and was blown away...my daughter who says that B&W is boring loved the shots too...
by the by the pictures were of her...

Ive come to the same conclusion. This stock reacts amazingly to diffuse lighting. Its nice with direct/contrasty light but really is exceptionally creamy under a big cloud or silks.

I found some acros 100 in local store. Are they still the same formula mentioned in this thread? Shall I give it a try? It looked too contrasty to my taste but can be a combo with a low contrast lens and rodinal.

I used it recently, I shot it at 80 EI, developed in HC-110h, 11 minutes, 30 seconds initial agitation and then 3 inversion at 10 minutes, 6 min., and 2 minutes, 68 degrees. These negatives were just a little thin but scanned very well. I didn't find it contrasty; I really liked the results. Too bad it is discontinued. Here are two from that roll, one indoors and one outside in sun.
