Howdy, Once it cools down a bit(....we have just had our 5th consecutive day above 40 dec C in Adelaide) I am going to start with this B&W processing game. As per some of the other posts that I have read in this forum, I will take peoples advice and stick with known products. Ilford films seem to be the most obvious choice and it appears that Rodinal is going to be the easiest developer for me to source. At this early stage, though, I will only be scanning to view the images. This will not be scanning for printing, just scanning for viewing. (Printing will come a bit down the track, once I am familiar with the developing process, I will try Enlarging and printing). With this in mind, I would rather I didn't fork out the cash for a higher end film scanner. I would like to just stick with the flatbed and neg holder. SO, with all the above information at hand, what film(s) should I stick with? I know a lot of people in other posts have said HP5+ or Tri-X is best for starting out, but I am concerned with the larger grain and the scanner. I have used FP4+ (quite a while ago) and was wondering whether this would be a better option?
