    Neopan vs TMax

    Sorry if this is an FAQ - I'm looking for comparison of Neopan Acros 100 vs TMax 100, preferably with examples. I'm interested in comaring things like grain size, exposure latitude, etc.

    Thanks a lot!

    Here is a comparison:

    Acros has slightly better reciprocity, other than that not much difference that I could see.

    for me, grain and acutance=same

    Character, Acros is way better. TMax for me is the worst film I have used. Acros might not match APX100 or FP4+ but is not nearly so bad as Tmax, so OK for quickloads. Tmax 5x4 readyload..........I would rather shoot 120 Ilford if portability is an issue.

    Well, I'm shooting 4x5 and I prefer quickloads/readyloads, so I guess, FP4+ is not an option for me.
    Ordered a box of Acros and red filter

    As an interesting aside, Butzi's link indicates that as of November, 2003, Fuji Acros Quickloads were $50 for 20 sheets and Tmax Readyloads were $42.

    I checked the B&H site and today both are listed at $61 while the Adorama site lists Tmax at $65 and Acros at $62. Quite a price jump in slightly over 3 1/2 years!
