Great price for this film here on Amazon. I normally buy my film from freestyle photo supply but they were out. I've used all the major brand names, Ilford Deltas / FP4 HP5 Pan F 50, Kodak tmax and tri-X(my least favorite) Efke, Rollei, Arista and various other black and white film. I think the only other film that even comes close to the sharpness of Acros is ilford FP4. Hardly ever any fogging if processed correctly. Even the 35mm size negatives are amazing quality. Acros Neopan is by far the best film I've used. I develop it myself and used various kinds of developer though I will let you in on a little secret: Use Kodak TMAX DEVELOPER!! uber fine grain, strikingly sharp edges and a sweet contrast you won't find with other films. How is Acros cheaper than Ilford film? I don't know. I scan my negatives with a Canoscan 9000f so I know with certainty how fine the grain is.
Just another amateur wannabe photographer who likes medium format. I really like this film. Not much to compare it to but it suits me fine for detail, resolution and shadow. I really like the 'vintage' look and ambiance that b&w provides. Ansel Adams I'm not but I aspire to decent landscape wall art stuff with my Pentax 645nii, 45 prime AF and 45-85 AF. Love the effect of this film
Acros is a great film for detailed images, especially when paired with a developer like XTOL. However, we careful to meter for the highlights which are very easy to blow out. If you don't trust yourself, use Ilford FP4+ which is more forgiving.
I use this film in a mamiya rb67 pro... which is the original 67. I find that this film delivers great density, and tonal range. I'd like to mention that it has a super fine grain... which, if developed correctly can also give you a grainy look if that's what you're looking for (akin to tri-x) or if you develop say d79 1:1... it will give you fine detail like (tmax-although t max is a t grain film)... Fuji did a great job with this film.I recommend it...
Excellent film, the very best in tones and reciprocity. I use several brands of cameras, from pin holes to Hasselblad, and this has far less grain than Kodak Tmax100, and slightly better tonal response than Delta 100.
