Fuji GF670 Camera with

Kodak Ektar 100 and Ilford HP5

Fujifilm GF670 Sold in Japan.  Discontinued Aug’14.  Mine is still alive and kicking.
Well, I’ve re-discovered film as a digital man wanting an analog past. (Joe Walsh would say, I’m an Analog Man in a Digital World).  Film is just plain fun from understanding which film stock, ISO… you need for the scene and slowing down in taking the image with the best possible composition in camera.  Tripods required.
On the Color side, I’ve tried Fujifilm 400H Pro, Kodak Porta 400 and now Ektar 100 negatives.  Ektar comes up on top.  Next, Velvia 50/100 to try as color transparency films, i.e. WYSIWYG.
On the B&W, I’ve tried Fuji ACROS 100 and Ilford HP5.  Neither one is a clear winner for my tastes and style.  Have Kodak Tri-X 400 to try, maybe it’s the one for me.
This is what I love about Analog – Film as it’s not the post processing that matters to “get the look”, it’s the film stock you use under varying conditions that drive your end product.  Note: I will have my first 6×17 images available next week using Kodak Etkar 100.  Yes, I’ll post the good, the bad and the ugly.
