Response to Wow...
of course the b&w's are shot with Leica glass...
sometimes I wonder why I mess around with the old pentax gear from the 1970s. For example, I was out with a roll of Kodak E100 slide film today under a deep blue sky with a PL filter... the Pentax SPF and a 28mm lens... I guess summer demands color and for me that means Pentax.
I have not shot with ilford100 (nor any ilford for that matter). My old Canon 28mm in LTM (from the 1960s) gives more grain even with Neopan100. In fact with that lens I have to use Neopan400 to get the results that I like.
For b&w I am a big fan of Fujifilm Neopan 100 for sure... I know Jeff shoots the 1600 from time to time and I do have two rolls in the fridge, but being mostly a day shooter, I prefer iso 100.
I have only printed digitally with the machines at the camera store in recent years. Almost no control over the outcome and I have not been too happy with the results. Recently there are some new machines that allow you to control and adjust directly on the printer (at the camera shop)... I have to try that approach as a poor man's work around.
