In my case, 3 rolls of Portra 160 in 35mm and 1 roll of Ektar 100 in 35mm.
2 rolls of Portra 160 and 1 roll of Ektar 100 to go.

EK TMZ ... like 15 years ago ! But, knowing how
I work, and my subject matter, I have no doubt
that it hadda be TMZ. The universe hasta follow
the principle of balance, and for all those who
cannot stand grain, I love it as much as all of my
opposites combined !

I just wish digital noise were as aesthetic as my
beloved film grain. Film grain is "image friendly"
in the sense that it visually combines WITH the
visual flow. Digital noise kinda DEFIES that flow.

For those who do not know, that is a 4x5 Tri-X Film Pack (12 exposures) circa 1962. There were two previous exposures used before I got it, no idea what they are. Nope I have not gotten around to developing it yet, so I have no idea how this 50+ year old film will come out.

Recently I have been experimenting a bit. I have just developed a roll of Ilford PANF Plus 50 ISO and a roll of Ilford Delta PRO 400. I have shot a few rolls of HP5+ 400 and a couple of Kodak T-MAX 400.

I am trying them out to see what I like best. So far I am happy with almost all of the lower ISO films but am finding myself a bit picky on the higher ISO films. I guess the grain needs to really be right.

Almost exclusively Portra 160 VC. I like the images I can create with this film.

I've been experimenting with Ilford Delta 100, Tri-X 400 and Agfa Vista 200. The Agfa was bought from Poundland in the UK at - yes - 1 per roll of 24. It's a budget film, not bad but a bit flat for my tastes. Not desaturated, just flat and needs some work on the scanner. Love the Tri-X and Ilford Delta though.

It's really great to see all the responses from those still regularly using film.
I am still working my way thru a 6 pak of Tri-X.

While I still shoot more digital than film, there is no way that digital can compete with film for B&W shooting.

For any who may be interested, I found out that I should have tray developed the film. A film pack that has been open for 50+ years has lots of time to develop all kinds of problems. Also, make sure you have enough fixer before you start. BTW the latent images were good, none of my exposures came out.
