I've only ever used Ilford films for B&W. I know that the reports of Ilford's demise are exaggerated but they prompted me to ask what other B&W films people are using. I'm particularly interested in fine grained, slow to medium speed, 35mm and 120. No chromogenics. Any recommendations?

I have been told that Fuji Acros 100 is one of the finest grained B&W films around at present. I develope it in Tmax developer and I am very happy with it. There was a thread similar to this a few days ago.

Kodak Technical Pan (ISO 25) developed in Technidol - peerless.

Thanks for the pointers. According to Kodak, Technical Pan is no longer made but perhaps there is still some stock available, Michael?

if not Efke do a 25ISO film (very picky on exposure tho), and MACO do one as well.
