If you want a real treat and don’t mind a bit of extra work, Fomapan R100 is my favorite of any B&W films that I have used.

It’s a true reversal B&W film that can only be self developed or sent to a lab in the US called “dr5Chrome”. For me it’s worth the hassle and I love the results. However a batch of this film from last year had black spots, so it looks like Foma have a new box/batch out now according to their web site.

This is getting out of hand...

I just wanted to shoot some film on the side

I'll buy these:
5x Portra 160
1x AGFAPHOTO CT Precisa New 100
1x Provia 100F
1x T-Max 100
1x T-Max 400
1x Velvia 50
1x SFX 200
That'll be 69€/$91

I'll have 31 rolls to burn through then, that should be enough for a while

Thanks, everyone! I cerntainly know my options now.


regards
Jan

BTW, where do you get AGFAPHOTO CT Precisa New 100?

Agfa was my favorite at one point with the Agfa Ultra 100 (ISO 100 C41) and the Agfa RSX II (ISO 50 slide). I still have a few in the freezer and even though they are quite a few years expired, they still continue to provide great results.

Yep, that should last you. I am looking forward to see your results.

I might be able to get 20 old rolls of Kodachrome 25 very cheaply. The expiration date is 1977, they've been stored in a cool environment but haven't been frozen.
I'm of a mind to try them, how should I I treat them (ISO rating, development)?

You can’t develop Kodachrome any longer as the K14 chemicals are not made any more.
There is no lab in the world that can develop it as a colour slide film.

I’ve heard people developing Kodachrome as b&w, but I’m not sure of the results.
