Shot some film for a change recently. Been a couple of years since I pretty much had given up on film. Friend gave me a Pentax K1000 that had belonged to her father in law, so I bought a couple of rolls of Kodak Tri-X and decided to shoot at 200 ISO instead of the box speed 400, based on a recommendation from a pro photographer I used to follow on line.
Frankly, I didn’t notice much difference, and it cost 4.00 more per roll to get it processed. Maybe if you are going to print from negatives in a darkroom you can see a difference, but to scan negatives to jpegs and edit digitally, not worth the extra cost. And there is very good film for half the cost of Tri-X out there right now.
Here is my favorite from the two rolls. Digital still works better for me day to day. With the cost of film and processing, it’s more of a luxury item right now.
