Personal Comments : Neopan 100 is one of my fav medium format films. Its low contrast so you’ll get a lot of greys in it, which make the picture look almost vintage. Contrast can ofcourse be increased by pushing the film one or two stops. The film does great in flash and the tones remain
constant. What I love the most is that its low grain and the pictures are really clean and sharp.

  1. I am fascinated by film photography but I don’t know anything about it. I just know that I love the pictures and I want to take pictures just like the ones over here: http://jesuisrobert.tumblr.com/

    Could you tell me which camera and film roll to buy? Also where in Delhi can I buy them?

    1. Dear Nayana

      You can pick up really cheap cameras from palika baazar in Delhi, else best is from ebay. I really can’t tell from the information you gave that what kind of camera you should be looking for. But I would recommend a camera which is simple and easy, not really complicated. Maybe even a lomography camera (www.lomography.com) . Film can be picked up from any photo studio.

      Hope that answers your question.

  2. I’m considering a Leica. Would you recommend it? Do you know if it’s available in Palika? I’m fond of Fujifilm. Which film would you recommend of theirs? Thanks for answering!

    1. Any camera is a good camera if you’re able to understand it and get the results from it. Leica’s have been known to be one of the best RF cameras ever designed and their performance is unsurpassed. But would I recommend it, not really. Leica’s are meant for street photography and not for casual around the day imagery.

      And about the films, there is nothing better than experimentation. Why don’t you pick up a few rolls of different kinds of films and try them all. You can then stick to the ones you like the best.

  3. i just clicked on this post of urs to say this is my all time fav b/w film – and i find that its urs too! 🙂 haha. although u say its ur fav medium format film.. ive only used the 35mm type.. and its better than the kodak stuff i’ve used.. and i think i prefer it to some of the ilford stuff ive tried as well. the tones are really beautiful on neopan acros
