Here are some recent shots with some long expired FP4.
Camera was Nikon F4s and lens the venerable stovepipe Vivitar 28-90 by Komine.
Cheers

Nice! I need to shoot some film.
First I need to adjust the rangefinder on my Koni Omega.
Also preserve some vegetables and berries from the garden....etc. Rolling Eyes

Life can get so busy. The images can probably wait but the berries and vegetables maybe are more urgent.
Here is another from this series.

Very nice, Thomas. You're using one of my favorite MF lenses. The shot of the pier's wood grain did a decent job of showing off its capabilities.

That old FP4 was still hanging in there; did a good job. Are you acquainted at all with Kodak's (now defunct) Plus-X Pan? It also was ISO 125. One of my favorite B&W emulsions. I've never shot with FP4, but I guess I need to get me some if it is anywhere nearly as nice as Plus-X Pan was.

Thank you Michael.
FP4 is an old friend of mine but I was gifted these rolls and I am almost finished them.
There are some Plus-X Pan rolls as well, so it will be useful to see how they compare.
I will probably use them next.
Of course they are all well and truly expired.
From memory - back in the day - I think that there was little between the two
Cheers
