Neopan 400

  1. Just thought I would share a few shots from the roll of Neopan 400 I developed last week in Rodinal.
    Thanks again to Mauro. I shot these with the superb Minolta XD11.

  4. Great tones with the Rodinal. I have an almost full bulk loader of this film in Legacy Pro 400 packaging, but haven't tried Rodinal. I've been using Kodak HC110 dilution B. It doesn't appear to be excessively grainy so maybe I will try that combination. Thanks.
     
  5. It is pretty grainy Mike, try it on a test roll first before you shoot anything important.
     
  6. Wow. And awesome!
    It is still my favorite 35mm camera.
     
  7. It's a pitty Fuji discontinued this film in 120 roll film (last year) and in 35mm now. (At least now in Europe). I have to find a replacement film (iso 400) in 35mm and 120 roll film now.
    But it won't be the last film which is going out ......
     
  8. Neopan is gone? neopan is my favorite! :(
     
  9. Oh dear -I'm not happy.
    Neopan 400 in 35mm has become my firm favourite ; but I find it no longer listed at Adorama.
    As to Rodinal : word is it comes into its own with the other Neopan :Acros 100.
     
  10. Did someone say Acros in Rodinal?
    I like that combo too.

  11. I'm sorry to confirm that Adorama is indeed longer carrying this film. You might find the discussions in this Flickr group to be of interest: http://www.flickr.com/groups/neopan/discuss/72157624035544794/
    I hope this helps, but please do let me know if you need anything else, now or in the future: Helen@adorama.com
    PLEASE note Adorama Fall Holiday schedule http://cot.ag/nfsgly; please plan accordingly We appreciate your understanding & business

  12. Helens reply does not inspire much confidence : the flickr thread she refers to has a last posting dated May 2010.
    May be a little more research is required..
    Fans of Neopan 400 went through the divorce proceedings of the 120 format some years ago :the official line being that a rare chemical ingredient in the rollfilm version was no longer deemed acceptable by some international agency.
    At the time,the same film ,in 135 format,was pronounced 'safe' ,because it did not require ingredient "X".
    If anyone can throw some light on the true state of affairs, please post.
     
  13. I posted the link only because I personally thought it was an interesting discussion!
    A little research suggest that the Neopan 400 in 35mm may available here:
