Tri-X has been my go to film. Tried T-MAX 100 and 400, of the two 100 is better.
Now onto Fomapan 200 and 400.
Rollei Retro 80s.
The advantage of LQN over XTOL is that I can easily and reliably get it from the same place I buy my film from
. I'd just as likely use XTOL or anything else really, but LQN is the easiest for me at present. I get my times from the Fomapan 400 data sheet; 7 min at EI 250 at 20 deg.
I'd use Tri-X just as well, but it cost 3x the price of Fomapan here, I wasn't a fan of the T-Max flims, a bit too digital for me.
