I know EMULSIVE is running a Portraparty, but me being a grumpy old-aged pensioner, I don’t have any social media accounts (although I do read some).
I was recently reading Daphne Schnitzer’s interview and one of the many materials she uses is Harman Direct Positive Paper (DPP).
It must be 30 years since I’ve used ILFORD FP4 PLUS, of course, it was plain FP4 in those days (I stopped using it before the PLUS arrived in 1990).
It sounds very grand when you tell people that you are having a field camera made for you. I certainly felt grand and excited when I placed my order for an Intrepid 4×5 with blue bellows and lens board.
A lot has been written about Bergger Pancro 400 on this website, so this is me just adding my small bit to the general happiness people get from using this film.
I mentioned to EM that my Kosmo film had just arrived and he demanded a 5 Frames With… pronto! So here we are.
The film cassette label states that the S stands for Sound Recording Film. I wondered how a film designed for making movie sound tracks would fare in conventional photography.
I was recently given a Pentax 110 Auto, it is in lovely condition and it fired up happily with a new set of batteries.
I thought CineStillFilm 800T would be a fun film to try and used my Leica M2 and Summarit-M 50mm f2.5 lens (with lens hood) to shoot a roll in and around the Manchester Art Museum, Rylands Library and the surrounds.
UPDATE: Scott Micciche has published part one and part two of his extensive FERRNIA P30 Alpha tests.
EMULSIVE: As film photography practitioners, you’ll hopefully be familiar with the release of FILM Ferrania’s FERRANIA P30®Alpha 35mm black and white film
