    Default Choices of chromogenic film

    I have always used Fuji Neopan 1600 with satisfying results. But I'm thinking of using other black and white film but with the convenience of C-41 processing for an upcoming event. What are my choices available?

    I know there is Kodak BW400CN and Ilford XP2 Super, both chromogenic film. But are there other chromogenic films by other brands?? Which one would you recommend for people and candid shots??

    Thank you for your help and suggestions.

    If you plan to print /scan, Kodak 400BW CN...for darkroom printing, Ilford Xp 2 super.

    Both are excellent film, lattitude is there, so no worries about over/under exposure. You can rate the film from ISO 250 to 1000 w/o problems (just don't under exposre at higher ISO).

    Neopan 400CN is not available in singapore, unless you order them from Europe, which costs a bomb.
