Thread: Shanghai 8x10 100 Film Test

    Re: Shanghai 8x10 100 Film Test

    If believe this is also available as Catlabs 80 in 35mm to 8x10. I have a box and I look forward to shooting it.

    I do not believe it will sway me from FP4+ however.

    The Shanghai is slower and, per convention of H&D curve, Shanghai is the curve on the right.

    How does it react with plus and minus development compared to our old standbys, FP4+ and Tri-X?

    I have only processed 6 sheets so far, but emulsion seems fine.

    The long toe does not provide good shadow separation of tones. Mid curve is pretty straight, similar to FP4.

    I process all my film at the same gamma for printing but I don't see anything to suggest the Shanghai would not respond the correct way to alterations in development time.

    I have not tested the 8x10 version but I found significant quality control issues when I ordered Shanghai 120 rolls for my 6x6 gear.

    I switched to Arista EDU for my 120, 4x5 and 8x10 needs which has provided consistent quality.

    Where does everyone order their Shanghai from if they are achieving consistent quality product ?
