B&H film prices

Anyone notice that B&H just went up significantly on their film prices?? They have also discontinued several of their "Import" FUJI film offerings.

No I hadn't noticed... the "imports" seem to come and go... probably depends on exchange rates etc as much as anything - if the "import" ends up more expensive than the US version, there's not much point in "importing" it...

Freestyle usually does OK with something. Arista Premium's suppsed to be basically Tri-x, so there you are.

Freestyle's Legacy Pro 100 is rebadged Fuji Neopan Acros 100. Wonderful stuff. Some folks over at suspected it was so, and I've tested it out and it appears to be the case. Acros has almost zero reciprocity failure - very important when shooting with pinhole cameras (which I do quite a bit). Legacy Pro has the same reciprocity curve as Neopan Acros as far as I can tell, as well as having identical developing times in every listed developer. Ergo, it's rebadged Acros.If you roll your own, it's very cheap (especially since Neopan doesn't come in 100ft rolls).
