    I think i like it... I haven't had much experience with the 3200, but I am really diggin' the grain. Hope you guys like it!

    i'll throw up my roll of Fp4 (pushed to 800) later tonight.

  2. Looks good to me - do you mind sharing your development regime for this?

    I have a stack of Delta 3200 in the fridge ready for winter - DD-X is my planned developer, but I like the look of whatever you've used here.

    lol, i cheated... i sent it to the local lab to process... having never done it before i didnt know how i'd feel, but i think i'll stick to doing my own developing. negs were scanned. i can ask the lab what chemicals they used, if it was d76 or hc110 or whatever..

    I'll bet you will! You're not supposed to eat it ya know!

    (ha ha) I really like the tight quality of the grain your lab got on these. I'll bet it was D76 or at least not HC110. The latter usually clumps up the graim more (it's what I usually use to accentuate the grain - better printed than scanned.) Your scans look great! I especially like the 'moonglow' one. The softenss of the street happenings is offset by sharp sky. That's unusual!

    ha... just for hilarity's sake.. i'm gonna leave that text how it is. and yeah, i was really surprised when i first saw the grain of these, but not in a bad way at all... i'd just be scared to see what happens if i shot at 6400 with HC110 then... crazy crazy...
  6. I'd be interested in what they used. D3200 is one of my favorites and that is because of the grain.

    These look pretty good, but I would swear the results I get are a little better grain wise. Here is an example of a roll I did at 1600. I don't mean the amount of grain, but the look of it.

    Nice imagery in any case.

    hmm, your right. your grain turned out MUCH different. i DO like both however. heres a teaser of my FP4... MUCH different film, its crazy how different two b/w films can be...

    I love the grain on these, it has a really nice style to it. I am new to film and have only done 1 roll of B/W so far (Neopan 400). I'm looking foward to trying the higher ISO stuff now =)
  9. drew, these are very nice. i'm loving the gritty qualities they all share. my favorites are the delta flower, par, and the barra scoota is timeless..
  10. Good job on these but Barra Scoota is a real corker!
  11. Yes, Barra-Scoota is really good!

    thanks everybody! i told myself i wouldnt buy anymore film until my new F4s shows up, but once that does... i'll be shooting a TON... and i'll try my hand at some Velvia too... any others i should try?

    for the most part i shoot
    HP5... i guess i could give PanF a try? and maybe i'll find some SFX 200...
    (and of course i'll keep shootin the 3200)
  13. I like Pan F a lot - developed in DD-X, it has a soft tonality - not ideal for everything, but nice;

    If you're trying low speed stuff, definitely try some Adox CHS25 or CHS50 (also sold as Efke KB25 and KB50 respectively). They're old fashioned, single layer high silver content emulsions that give a vintage look;

    I know B&H photo sell Efke in the US, and bulk rolls too, which sadly I seem unable to get in the UK. Dev them in ID11/D76 for low grain, or in Rodinal or Adox RPH09 for the sort of look I have above.
