Ian Grant said:If it's the latest Lucky 100iso emulsion, treat it as if it's Tmax 100, they have bought into Kodaks expertise. There was an short article in the BJP last year.
jandc said:We tested Lucky 100 and 400, 35mm and 120, as we were thinking of importing it into the US. While many have speculated it's like Tmax and the rumors are out there it behaves nothing like Tmax. It acts like a conventional B&W film with an inadequate anti halo coating causing problems with point light sources.
Ian Grant said:They weren't rumours.
I will have to try and find the BJP article which was from a press release, this indicated that Lucky would be mamufacturing T-max type emulsions under license from Kodak. I'd think the Press Release was by Kodak rather than Lucky.
In fact somewhere I have a Test report on Lucky 400 ISO B&W film saying how identiaclly it resembles Tmax, I only get the BJP regularly and it wasn't there, so I'm sure the test article was in a B&W Photography magazine I bought just before Xmas.
It is possible they tested pre-release materials, however I don't think so as Lucky new tecnnology films are available here in the UK.
I think we are both right.jandc said:We tested it last January(2004) with film Lucky sent us to evaluate prior to placing an order. So unless something has changed in the last year I have to disagree with you on this.
Ian Grant said:If I turm my Tmax (just opened) over it looks the same as the Lucky.
Your image shows a rear views of Tmax & Lucky, it's totally irrelevant, the Tmax looks like its leader has had quite a bit of latent exposure as its gray, its salmon pink and thin from a newly opened carton and wrapping. Anyone on this forum can test this for themselves.
Only using the film will actually give us an accurate opinion and you told me to try it, which I am doing at your request and you know I've ordered the film in both 100 & 400 ISO versions which should have been despatched today.
