I shot some recently as well. (Nothing worth posting from them, but that's more my fault than the film's. )

Did your pre-correction photos show a shifting towards orange, colour-wise?
No, the shift was towards blue, really really blue.

Another one.
MX + Sigma 15 fisheye + Fuji Neopan 400



I don't really like the results, too much contrast and grains from what I see (could be my cheap scanner too).

I quite like the contrast and grain. Pity they've discontinued Neopan 400, I'd have liked to try it...

I found the same with Neopan 400. Definitely my least favourite B&W film and no loss to photography, in my opinion.

Last year I shot some C41 Neopan 400 with my Leicas and the K2DMD, I found it a film very hard to control in the highlights but pleasant and contrasty, definitely a film a film to get used to.

This is a shot with my M3:



This is taken with the M5, this one was metered in the tunnel and notice the burn out highlights:



This is taken with the K2DMD, I was metering on the painting and notice the upper half of the frame completely overexposed:



A "famous" photographer on another board seeing these pics told me I'm not good at metering.

As much as I find the 2 first pictures a tad overexposed, I like the 3rd one.

I quite enjoyed Neopan 400: contrast and grain was what I was looking for. Of course, I quite often pushed it to 1600:



Pentax K2.
Super-Takumar 135/2.5.
Neopan 400 (pushed to 1600)





Canon AE-1.
FD 70-210 f4.
Neopan 400 (pushed to 1600)

(Have I posted these ones before? Don't remember...)

Wouldnt those exposure with a dynamic range beyond NeoPan400's range be candidates for stand development? Presumably you'd shoot the roll in such contrasty lighting.

I really like the last of those. All three (the first two especially) would be difficult to meter in any case.... dunno what the readings may have been but looks like you'd just have to choose high or low.

One from last year right around Christmas at my lady's folk's place in MN. It was cold. I mean COLD. Like around 2 def F in the sun, cold.
From the little GR1s on Portra 400.

No dude, that's an awesome shot. Grain and all.

The first shot is a keeper!

These look more like the highlights were clipped in scanning.
I've never heard of C41 Neopan, but it's pretty difficult to actually start losing highlights with most C41 film.

This was shot on Kodak BW400CN. I used my typical Sunny 11 metering (I almost never meter anything) an d I opened up 3 stops so the underside of the bridge would be well exposed. Tat means the building in the bright sunlight was at least 3 stops overexposed and there is still detail there.




This image was shot on Kodak Ektar, and was purposely overexposed 5 stops (1 second exposure @f/22 in bright sunlight). Unfortunately my lab messed up the developing, bt there aren't blown highlights.

Impressive. I keep meaning to try that with Porta400 (50/f1.5 wide open in sunlight) but always chicken out... The highlight latitude of colour negs has probably been the hardest thing to get my head around coming from digital - you just can't kill it!

That's a really distinctive look -- something to be prized.

I don't understand why some of these shots are very grained...mine are quite smooth, but it's also true I used the C41 variant:

Leica M5:






K2DMD:
