I think we could form an HP5 appreciation club right here! :) Very nice shots.

Here's one from a recent wedding:

Portra 400NC, F80, Sigma 70-210 F2.8

Out of curiosity out of the people who use Portra. Which do you prefer? NC or VC?

Man there's something about B&W film that digital just can't touch. And the colors of Velvia are awesome too. makes me want to get a film camera! :D

I was never a fan of HP5 but loved FP4 and PanF.. From about 1975 until the mid '90s I'd like a dollar for every roll of Tri-X I shot though,,I loved the stuff.. I shot a heap of theatre and stage photography rating Tri-X at 1600iso or even 3200iso developed in ID11 or D76.. I had push processing Tri-X down to a fine art..

PanF is a beautiful film for studio work.. I would shoot PanF 120/220 in my studio rated at 40iso and pulled back the development by about 15%.. Grain was non-existant and the tonal range would match Tri-X..

I didn't need to experiment with developers,,I only used ID11 or D76..

Does anyone have any experience using the Rollei IR 400 film with R72 filter and a Kodak developer?

These are really 2 different beasts. NC is for natural color and VC is for Vivid Color. As Kodak's website says, VC is good for adding contrast at times when contrast is low as such on an overcast day. And NC is good when you have too much contrast such as on a sunny day.

They are tools to make photographs with when needed.

This reminds me that I have three rolls needing developed...

Does anyone know of any places in central Ohio, Columbus specifically, that will develop and make CDs with high-res TIFF files on BW and slide film? Thanks.

Shot with Kodak Retina on Kodak 400 B&W film. I got this camera from my grandfather, so i tried to use it. I find it quite hard :s lack of viewfinder makes life hard.

There's something about film...looks so much "realer" than digital

I looked at the whole thread, and I really think there are some good images here, but how can we talk about the "look" of film when viewing it on the web? Every one of these images has been scanned, and is now appearing on a monitor. Their "film qualities" no longer exist. They ARE digital.

I really do believe that large prints from film have qualities I like, but you can't see them on a monitor.
