Yeah sorry I was talking about the enlarger lol, I've only used f/8 and f/11, haven't really explored the others yet lol. Thanks for the info!

you folks got some nice stuff here^^
Oct 22, 2009 @ 16:47
bought 2 rolls of 100 iso and 3 rolls of 400 iso today. gonna go to the park tomorrow.
Oct 24, 2009 @ 04:13
^ i find iso 400 to be really excessive for most situations with my 35mm and its a bit more grainy i need to pick up some more film fuji superia or something blushing
Oct 24, 2009 @ 11:21
i love 400 iso. the grain quality is perfect for me. i think film and graininess go hand in hand most of the time. the only drawback of 400 iso is that any print bigger than 5x7 usually ends up TOO grainy and blurry.
Oct 24, 2009 @ 18:23
yeah 400 iso kind of sucks for printing haha. and 100 kind of sucks anywhere besides outdoors in sunlight. :/
Oct 24, 2009 @ 19:09
i'm not too fond of 100 ISO. it never provides enough contrast. i really can't afford any paper bigger than 5x7 so i'm fine shooting with 400.

which film would be best for portraits? and which b/w film is best?
Oct 24, 2009 @ 23:17
^100 iso is ideal for portraits. it makes peoples skin look smoother because the grains are really fine. i usuaulyl use arista film cause it's reaaaaaaaaaally cheap. but if i didn't order in bulk i'd get tri x film.

I use fuji acros 100 for everything lol.
Oct 25, 2009 @ 19:02
boo to 100.
Oct 25, 2009 @ 19:24
What do you guys think of 120 HP5+ film? I've shot it with 35mm film but I want to shoot 120 HP5+ film.
Oct 25, 2009 @ 19:51
ive always heard great things about delta and hp5. i get 120 and 35mm arista 400 for free so i just use those for black and white but for color i like portra vc 160 or 400. and fuji reala because its cheap. im not sure what ektar looks like but i was thinking of buying some in the future.
