View Full Version : Shanghai 100 film results

12-Aug-2009, 11:38
Hello all,
I just wanted to pass along some shots I took last week with Shanghai 100 film.
These were taken outside, in shade, against a white seamless. Exposure was f5,6 (wide open) at 1/60 with a Fujinon 210.
Negs were processed in HC-110 in a manual Jobo tank then scanned on an Epson 4870. I did some minor tinkering, #2 is a high-contrast attempt. Usually, I'll make an 8x10 first in the darkroom and scan that, but I thought I'd give the scanner a go. A big drawback is that I can't scan the film edges also, but a minor annoyance.
Anyway, I'm quite pleased with the results of the Shanghai film, and wanted to pass that along if anyone was wondering whether or not to try it. I just ordered another 100 sheets from ebay, total cost including shipping is $47.

It seemed your price is even cheaper than I bought it direct from factory. Is it per 25 sheet box or really for 4 boxes.

The film was targeted for portrait. Your pictures verfied that it is good for that. Very nice.

If you search Ebay under "Shanghai 4x5" you'll find the film at different prices, all from the same guy. There's always one at $21 (50 sheets); order two and you get 20% off shipping.
Btw, I didn't know it was geared toward portraits; I've had a tough time finding any company hype on the product.

I just ordered 200 sheets of the 4x5 myself (already have 50-5x7).
Cost was $112 with shipping. That's $14 per 25 sheet pack.
Not too bad.
