Default All the 35mm film you can still buy: Part 1 – Adox to Fomapan

Quote:
"Part one of a full round up of the 35mm film you can still buy today…"
.....according to this blog author. Zorkiphoto.co.uk

Some interesting films - a few I hadn't heard of - with links to examples and reviews.

Thanks Tony. Not sure I agree with the comments on HP5+'s chalk and charcoal look but still a useful site.

A sign of the times is how often a reference is made to how easy or otherwise a film is to scan

To be frank when I first saw your title I thought you had a film sale to announce. I think it was the phrase "all the film you can still buy"
It reminded me of those adverts you used to see with "Hurry, at these prices, it can't last" and "I must be crazy to sell at these prices" You were meant to picture in your mind's eye someone who was at best, commercially naive or even a bit of a clown and you were meant to feel sorry for him.

I wouldn't have minded but they were always the kind who clowned all the way to the bank

Mike

I came across Emulsive.org recently, which is also good reading, here's the page with links to their film reviews:

Esewhere on the site/blog here's a lot of useful information on pushing film.

As far as I know it is rebadged film and paper for one of the US sellers, It was once Foma film and Paper, but the film is know, as I understand it, a Chinese film, not sure about the paper, but I have read on Apug that the film is not the best, lots seem to have had problems with it,

I had a go a while back on my blog at listing all the black and white film available. The trouble is it's out of date almost as soon as I hit the publish button. Did mean to keep it up to date but, well...
It lists the film available in all sizes so might still be of use:

Some factual mistakes, for instace Silvermax and Adox Scala 160 are identical emulsions, labeled differently.
