Film Table Mk. 3


We're zeroing in on the definitive table charting the availability of black and white films - or, at least, so I like to think. As the title suggests, this is the third version and I'm sure it won't be the last. Some people have pointed out that certain films I've listed are no longer being made but as long as they're available then I've decided they should be there.

Reader Gert-Jan provided some excellent info about the Bergger films from France which I've included. He also mentioned a French company who were coating Japanese paper with a film emulsion in medium and large format sizes. However, they seem to have run into problems finding a supplier for the emulsion and have stopped selling the products in the meantime. If you want to check them out, they're at www.lomig.fr. Very interesting.

Get-Jan also suggested it might be an idea to colour code the table according to manufacturer rather than just on an alternate row system. I tried it and I think he's right so unless there's a mass rebellion, we'll stick with that.

Just a comment on the nomenclature used. Shouldn't your "Manufacturer" column actually be "Brand", and your "Brand" column actually be "Product-Name" ?? An additional column for Manufacturer would be useful too of course, though that might be contentious legally speaking!

I still buy Eastman Double-X in 16mm, single perf, 100 ft. rolls for my Minolta 16II cameras. Submini photography lives and the Minolta is a classic film camera. It is the 7222 number in your Eastman Double-X listing, available in 100 ft. or 400 ft. lengths.

Another note, Lomography Tiger film in 110 cartridges is color negative film.

(But I have printed color negatives on regular B&W paper. Exposures were 3X more than B&W negs and the contrast was a bit soft but it worked.)

Agfa vista is available in 100,200,400, and 800ISO the 400iso is my favourite consumer grade C41 film. I think it's only available in Asia but eBay to the rescue.
