I see your point Ornello. I guess I;m just sensitive cause I'm broke right now and can't buy any Neopan 1600, and already have a bunch of fomapan. Next month I'll try and get some neopan.

Thank you Ornello for your comments but I disagree that you can't push film. Maybe for your standards where everything in a negative has to be exactly perfect with perfect grays, and extremely fine grains. however, while i prefer perfect negatives, when it's dark and I don't want to use a flash and ...

fomapan 400 @ 800 HC110 vs. XTOL

I've got a whole bunch of fomapan 400 and wanted to know opinions on pushing it to 800. I know it supposedly doesn't push well but I know it's possible. I have a bunch of XTol and HC110 on hand and I'm not going to buy anything else. That being said I've heard that XTOL reclaims fomapans real rating...

Thanks, I've been wanting to try neopan for a while now so I guess I'll have to give it a go. However one thing that I didn't mention is that I'm on a budget (student) and am currently living in mexico where i don't have many film options so every time I go back to the states I like to buy one tank ...

ilford 400 delta vs hp5 push opinions

So my question is which is better for push...

arista II

Could someone please post on the development times for new arista II film. It is not the same as Ilford, it's made in germany so possibly it's similar to agfa. Freestyle posts some information but they don't include push processing times. Thanks.

I use very reguraly Oriental G papers and am looking at starting to use cold tone developers, however these products are very difficult to come across here in Mexico. So my question is, does anyone know of a company who will ship these product...
