Peter, I always use it one shot. I really like the 1+2 dilution; one part developer+2parts water. This gives several advantages over the usual 1+1 dilution. More sharpness, tighter grain, and very...

BCG Film

I received a free roll of BCG Film P400 recently from Greenwich Cameras. It came with an order of Foma 400 film. I had never heard of this film, but intend to try it.
Has anyone used it?
