The problem is that it can only sent via ground shipment and must be labeled as hazardous due to its being a VERY strong reducing agent.
BH and Adorama both used to ship it. I took a break from it about a year ago to get more familiar with D-76 & Tmax. I was rather fond of dilution E. I've got a hard copy of Covington's HC-110 web page that I reference all the time. Programmed my HP-41CX with his time/temp conversion formula, too. Thanks for the reminder about Freestyle.

Family snapshots taken on BW400 or XP2. I can't decide which of those 2 films I like the most.
Nice group of "in the wild" shots, and good looking kids.
I've only shot a few rolls of the C-41 B&W films but I did prefer the contrast and finer grain I got out of XP2. Here's one, a favorite shot of my old friend, Woody.

Cool shots!

Can I guess which film was used for each picture?

First three - BW400 CN
Last two - XP2 Super

I used to shoot with those films a lot. I finally decided that I like BW400CN best, mostly because it looks a bit more like Tri-x IMHO.

Here's an old one I shot on BW400CN with a Canonet 17 (back when I was using a lot of Japanese rangefinders):

The human-like expression on that dogs face is priceless. While the Nesster look is more like a deer/headlight

Really nice shot. Is that old stock APX 100 or the new stuff they seem to be making?

Thank you.
I'm not sure about the APX. I bought it in 2012 and it has a 2014 expiry date. It's probably the new stuff.
I really like it though.

Than you. Technically its quite poor. I developed for 1600 when perhaps I should have given it longer. The negs are quite speckly.... I may have a problem with my fixer or some other part of my processing which I'm trying to pin down, so I had to clean it up in Photoshop. I probably won't even attempt to wet print the shot..... but it does look quirky I guess
