Contemporary films with thick emulsion. : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

Does anybody know the current 135 or 120 films with thick emulsion? Thick enough to make the development technique like the two bath technique work good?

Thanks Andrey

I find that sticking to the older emulsions has always been the better bet. I have done extensive tests and don't really care for the T-grains (Kodak or Ilford) with my split baths. Even with regular developers, I don't get the look I'm after. Cheers

Probably Verichrome Pan will have the thickest emulsion.

Films from Eftke, Foma Bohemia and Forte all have thick emulsions and respond very well to the water bath technique, as does Kodak Verichrome Pan. In Eastern Europe (I take it from your address you're in Russia) the Foma and Forte films are readily available, relatively affordable and reliable. I used FomaPan 100 and 400 in 120 format in the time I spent wandering central and eastern Europe.
