Subject: UPDATE on :Question on film
I wanted to say thanks to all the answers I got previously.
I have been a busy beaver.
I bought some of several film (45 rolls in all) to see which I like and
I found 2 Ithat capture that "Grandads Picture" I spoke about earlier,
nearly no grain , nice contrast.
I have been working on developing technique and dilutions, as well as
different developers, etc.
I have to say to all the people that reccomended Illford Pan F+ 50,
The Efke 50 will shoot very nice but its a bit finicky in the
development phase, the Freestyle site warns its soft stuff and while it
is , it is capable of producing some amazing images, but so is the
The illford I cant seem to screw up if I try though, very even
Oddly, I have with some work in the development gotten almost no grain
images out of Fomapan/Arista.EDU 100, at $1.39 a roll I can afford to
experiment, it has a nice contrast and isnt bad at all, the grain is
light depending on developer, in d76 at 1:1 its very sharp.
If I can get a decent scanner I will post some of my experiments.....
Thanks to all who answered.
