    Cool What are the B+W 35mm films that are readily available in S'pore?

    To be more specific, I'd like to know the ones, i.e. bulk roll types that use C-41 process.

    Include the price please?

    TIA!

    Not too sure. Buy single rolls lar. Saves all the hassle. Unless you intend to shoot LOTS and LOTS of B&W... all except T400CN and Xp2 Super are chromogenic, btw. Each roll should not cost > $5-6.

    I believe you will screw up the chemicals and the lab operator will shout at you. Seen someone do this on photo.net some years ago and report his findings. OTOH there are some labs which develop B&W films in C41 chemicals. I've seen the results and they are not pretty. The negative is almost useless but there is some semblance of an image. I don't know what damage it does to the chemicals though.

    Default Agfa.

    You forgot the lovely Agfa films you can get here:
    APX 100
    APX 400

    and the Fuji films
    Acros 100 (fantastic one)
    Neopan 400
    Neopan 1600

    and the Forte films
    Fortepan 100
    Fortepan 200
    (these are extremely silver rich... just like the Forte B&W fibre based papers. They are superb in medium format).

    How about the chromogenic ones then?

    What's TMZ? TMY? TMX?? Teach teach, please.

    I'd really like to try the TMAX 3200 one day. And maybe a few rolls of others to see for myself what's the B&W effect that many claim is unreproducible with photoshop.

    Who does it in Singapore and is it expensive?
    Thanks.

    I thank these that might want to share their knowledge!



    In my search for infomation :

    KODAK T-MAX P3200 Professional Film (TMZ)

    This film will be discontinued and replaced by KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX P3200 Film / P3200TMZ on a stock-turnover basis in 2002. The new film requires different development times. For technical information, see KODAK Publication F-4016, KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX Films.

    TMAX 3200 can be processed in any reputable lab. It's just a traditional B&W film. People always recommend shooting it at 1600 and process "as is", i.e. 3200. I have not tried it myself.

    TMX is just the code name for TMAX 100, TMY for 400, TMZ for 3200. Just like RVP=Velvia, RDPIII = Provia 100F, RHPIII = Provia 400F.

    Is developing the film (TMAX) expensive? How do they charge?

    Usually $5 or thereabouts. Note that it will take longer than the normal C-41 film. Unless you process at RGB (but I dunno how much they charge).

    Thanks for your prompt reply! Maybe I might try those films one day... forgot to ask just one more question though... The printing on black and white paper is quite expensive isn't it? How much?
