Hi, I’m Brian Dys — a photographer from the inside looking out · a composer entangled in electronic music · a UX designer · a spouse, a parent, & everything in between.
I haven’t tried using B&W film again. I think the last time I took pictures with that film was two years ago. I wanted to use Colpan but a friend suggested something with better quality like Kodak.
I haven’t seen Kodak Panchromatic 200 lately. Maybe it was phased out. I’ve visited Quiapo a month ago. I found out that there is only a store left selling black and white darkroom equipments and supplies.
There, they have Kodak Tri-X reload. No Lucky Pan, no Kodak Panchromatic. This film is ASA 400. Since I don’t like grains for most of my pictures, I prefer having Colpan over Kodak. That means, I have to process the film myself.
For a wide variety of choices in B&W films, there is Fuji Digital in Megamall. I might try their films some time but they are expensive.
