    Having worked in retail (where I sold it in bucket loads) and then as technical editor on a film based magazine ( to review it) I could name loads, but it may just look like used Google to find the answer Wink

    My favourite was Fujicolor 160 NPS

    I liked Kodachrome 25 and 64, and for landscapes, Fuji 100 E6, which was nicer pushed two stops to 400 ASA. Then along came Velvia and changed the game completely.

    Colour print (mainly for weddings and portraits/studio) was always Fuji Reala.

    Black and white was usually Ilford (apart from a short dalliance with Kodak T-Max), HP5 and Pan F, and for specialised applications, Kodak Technical Pan (2415?) and occasionally Agfa Scala slide film.

    Konica IR anKodak HIE also used on occasion, then later Ilford XP2.

    Lots of different films for different applications!

    Ektar 1000
    Ektar 100 ( I think, but not sure )
    The various Kodak Ectachromes ( again, "I think"! )
    Wasn't there a Fuji "Neopan"??

    Neopan is B&W. e.g. Acros 100

    Mainly Fuji Reala and Ilford FP4 from memory although I also recall using Kodacolor II for colour prints. Had a little play with Kodax T-max for mono but tended to stick with Ilfords FP4 and HP5.

    I remember the bulk film loaders we had at college and you would frugally run off your own film cassettes with non standrd lengths such as 10 exposures. Using film certainly did make you think that little bit harder on composition and exposure settings before pressing the shutter button.

    Remember Gratispool?

    When I started there was Kodak and Ilford. Then, in the mid-1950s, along came Gevaert and Agfa (seperately). Can't remember being aware of Fuji until the 1960s. The late appearance of the German brands in UK might have been a result of the same import controls that made Leica and Rollei cameras unobtainable (legally) for a while.

    yes indeed. brings back childhood memories. still got the negs.

    Don't buy film.
    Gratispool means free films.

    Many of the films being mentioned are still in daily use, but Gratispool is a piece of history.

    Pretty sure I've used Ansco and 3M in the very distant past. Both dead as dodos now.
