Classicpan 400 is one of those films is not for the faint of heart. It can be really grainy and get really funky with a Polariser or yellow filter due to the near infrared properties. Now I really lucked in this roll I shot with my Nikon F and I went around Oakville during its 150th birthday.

I have this grand plan for film, chemical and paper standardisation, well I got the chemicals down pat. I have reputation for being a bit of a "foodie" when it comes to playing around with different film emulsions, I am curious, so there. This time out I gave Lucky SHD 100 a shot. It is made in China and has bit of a reputation for "interesting effects" which is nothing more the spotty quality control.

I lucked in on this roll, it scans nicely but I have not printed from it yet. I used my Nikkormat FTn on this excursion. So I shot with Lucky to say I did, now from what I heard, Era, also from China is much further ahead in quality control and has bit of a following, now to find some.

I shot this all last weekend with my Pentax Spotmatic II and Fomapan 100 processed in Rodinal 1+50, a great film/developer combination. In Oakville, last Summer I was in Toronto, this year its going to be more in my backyard.

I am going to have an important announcement from the Oakville Camera Club shortly and you will have to stay tuned for that next week.
