I have a desire to shoot B&W with some of my old classic 35mm SLRs that I have collected over the years. I had a full blown color/B&W darkroom (including that German mastepiece of mechanical engineering-a Leitz Focomat V35), but I gave it up several years ago. I am 69 and my wife and I sold our old home and moved to a small 2 BR, 2 bath condo, with no excess space. With that background, I was thinking of shooting the chromogenic B&W films that I could have locally processed in C-41, and then scan and print digitally. Do these films show the sharp edged grain patterns that I had come to love from conventional B&W? I plan on making 16"x24" prints. Some of my old B&W negs scanned and printed that size, have a texture I can't get from digital capture files converted to B&W. My alternative is buying a changing bag, delevoper, fixer, and shooting conventional B&W, but space is a premium in our new home, and after putting up with 47 years of my smelling like Hypo, this would not thrill my wife. (Neither would negatives hanging in the bathroom!)
Any feedback from users of this B&W film?
