  • 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.
  • Pros: sharpness, exposure latitude, strong blacks, PRICE
  • Cons: not all pro shops stock it

  • 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
  • Cons: none

  • 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. pris från 30-65 kr
  • Pros: Underbart vackert korn, går bra att pressa.
  • Cons: Blir allt svårare att få tag på i handeln
