Your pics look great Chris! Definitely looks like a film to try out.

And I love the use of the TLR. It's the softness around the central sharp part that does it for me. Lovely!

Been intrigued by this thread, have always avoided this film, (the original version) due to it "dodgy" reputation

But have found this on Youtube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqvrkh48Omo

Thought I would share it (the images start at about 2mins)

I am begining to get impressed by this film and it reminds me of something I've used in the past. Maybe HP3 or early HP4. Very nice tonality and the film appears to be able to handle contrast well.

Many thanks for the Yotube links- most interesting.

Neil.

Look good Chris (I’ve just “subbed” on Flickr too!) - it seems to be a film that suits urban scenes or gritty subjects perhaps?

Thanks for the link,CambsIan, which led me onto a second link. In the first link I liked the comparison between the scene in colour and then b&w. I was surprised at how dark a reddish/maroon was. I had expected it to be lighter but maybe anything that is more towards maroon does come out darker than"pure" red since in the second link a red truck did come our fairly light

Contrast looked fine in both whereas in Neil's link that photographer's shots were a lot more contrasty. The lesson here may be that it depends on the photographer.

It may be that it is slightly more ortho-panchromatic than most films and if so it's a look I quite like

Mike

Default Film Ordered

I have now ordered a few rolls of 120 Shanghai GP3 for my 120 pinhole work so hopefully I shall be testing this film soon.

Prints will also be made before I make up my mind if it's going to be a keeper. I am hoping it is because the hit rate with pinhole can be quite low and with a 5x4 pinhole camera - expensive as well!

Neil.

Cracking set of images Chris and they tempt me to give the film a try. Unfortunately I've now got a severe dose of nostalgia for my many years of holidays staying on Gyllyngvase Road.

My impression from that person's posts is that there is a sign of real intent to get things right even if Shanghai is not there yet so we may be seeing a new era in its attempt to establish itself
