I work up feeling really old this morning. So, I bought a film camera off eBay. (Nikon N80) Cheeep, and I’ll use it to teach my grandson black and white film developing. So, since it’s been (mumble) years since I’ve bought black and white film, what’s good out there these days?
In my Photo class (intro to B&W), it was recommended that we use Kodak T-Max, Tri-X or Ilford’s HP5+, FP4, or Delta Series.
I don’t know what you have in the way of supplies but Ilford makes a “Student Pack” that come with 2 rolls of their HP5+ (a solid 400 speed film) and a 25ct pack of 8×10 paper. This pack cost sonly $2 more than buying the paper alone.
