Wow love the grains.

My contribution here.

Spotmatic Takumar SMC 50/1.4 Lucky SHD100
Rodinal 1+200 stand developed for 2 hours.
Nice grain. I just got some Rodinal so I will give that a try sometime.

More Tri-X 400 that expired 27 years ago:

wow, I have never seen tri-x look like that. That grain is not very pleasant. Still, I like the effort and it is good to see what old film looks like and for that bravo!

Which one do you prefer?
Provia 100 grain?


Or Fuji Neopan 1600 grain?

I'm really surprised by how little grain there is.

The whole roll turned out grainier than I expected, but it wasn't underexposed.

Zav-

That B&W shot has to be medium format, right?

I was thinking the same thing and meant to ask...

ZAV, Inquiring minds want to know?

Fuji 400H, B&W conversion, SP1000, Pentacon Electric 1.8/50mm - the lens focuses very close

Nesster- Great one. You see 1001 macro bee shots a day. This one stands out as something really unique with the camera/film/lens combo you're using. Great composition. Not an easy shot to pull off, I'm guessing.

Jake, jgredline, I'm afraid my answer is disappointing. The B&W photo was taken with a MZ-50 (ZX-50 in the US) and FA 77 ltd lens.

PS: Has anyone yet tried the Fuji Natura 1600?

I'm surprised. It's way sharp for 1600. Is that typical of this film or is it the contrast of the photo creating an illusion?

I don't really have an answer, it's my first roll of Neopan. Of course, I think the contrast is partly responsible.
Here is another example of Neopan 1600:
