I had some time a few weeks ago while waiting for a plane home. I had pack two of my old Asahi Pentax Spotmatic cameras just in case I got to go out and “play” a little. One was loaded with Kodak Tri-X B&W and the other with Kodak 400TX, the C41 process film. I should know better….I have tried the 400TX in the past and it is a poor representation of B&W Film. I will stick with true panchromatic film in the future. I also had my little travel Nikon, the J1, and took some overlapping photos in digital format.
