As a person whose primary effort has been amateur photography of transportation subjects, I followed the general trend of many in this field who converted from MF for black and white to Kodak 5060 Panatomic-X in 35mm. This ASA 32 film offered very fine grain required for detailed full-frame shots of aircraft, locomotives and related subjects. I believe Kodak referred to this as an extremely fine grain film. Of course I often had this film in my camera when other subjects were available, and while recently looking at some of my negatives from the mid-1970s, I was surprised to see how well this film worked on dull days. I was occasionally able to take action shots with it as well, as you will see. I did not always have an appropriate B&W filter on the lens, and as can be expected, a featureless sky was the cost. A photographer looking for fine grain B&W films today has a surprising number of choices. At ISO 50, Ilford Pan-F is still available, and although the wonderful Agfa 25 is gone, I see considerable talk of Efke in ISO 25. My compromise has been to use TMAX-100 and Delta 100, and I have been quite satisfied with both for my application. Here are a few samples of a bygone film that in my opinion, really had no equal.
