Summary: This is my second review of this film. And my opinion has not changed. It is by far, the best 400 speed B/W film made. I soup it in X-Tol, and get wonderful results. But, I've seen it souped in D-76, Rodinal, etc, with equally nice results.
Pros: Beautiful range of tones and very fine grain.
Cons: Seriously, there are none. If you need the speed of a 400 film, this it it!
Summary: used it only once, but i don't think i'll do it again. it's nothing bad, or anything it's just that i exoected something better. could have been sharper, less grainy and more contrasty. (maybe developping was screwed up) ill stick with ilford.
Pros: hmmm... as i said its not bad but fuji has better
Cons: a lot... could have been wrongly developped, i dont know
Summary: Very sharp film that gives dark, rich blacks and has a steeley coldness to it - a good thing. Grain is practically non-existent in medium format. Looks a bit like Tri-X, sans the grain, but has a look all of its own.
Pros: Put away your critical grain focuser if using 120 version. This stuff is almost grainless., Sharp!, Rich blacks. Black is black, not dark grey., A unique aesthetic., A little cheaper than other name-brands in 120. Good value., Good latitude..., Laugh if you will, but this has a better spool "tech...
Cons: Has a Tri-X-y look that might not be suited to all subjects..., This is a "cold" film that might not be to everyone's preference., Negatives might be a little more prone to scratches, so be gentle with them., HP5 might have a slightly better tonal range
Summary: This has quickly become my favorite black and white film. It really hits on all cylinders - sharpness, nice tonality, very forgiving, and a very affordable price. I think of Neopan as having a very 'modern' look -- very black blacks and razor sharp.
Summary: I am using this film since more than 5 years. It is my favortie black and white film. The gray-tones are simular to Tri X, but the Neopan is sharper.I tried T Max but did not like the gray scale. I develop the Neopan in X Tol 1+1 and got very stable resuts over the years.
Pros: gray-tones, price, always on stock in Berlin
Conclusion: Framkallad i Agfa Rodinal 1+50 får jag lättkopierade negativ i en kontrast jag tycker om. När den pressas hårt blir den kornig och vacker, annars är den nästan löjligt finkornig och detaljrik. Mångsidig med andra ord. Den enda film man behöver.
