Fuji Neopan 1600 (Superpresto)

The Fuji Neopan it's a 1600 ASA film which has one of the most beautiful grain I ever seen on a film. It's the perfect choice for portraits.

The history starts with the purchase of my Olympus OM4, I got no money for a flash unit so I bought some rolls of high speed film (Tmax and Delta 3200) for my night parties. But results with those films were disappointing, too much contrast and evident grain.

So, I tried with the Neopan 1600. It was slower but can be pushed up to 3200 ASA or down to 800 ASA with very good results. Due its contrast and beautiful grain it’s my first choice for portraits. Additionally, the film is also really scan friendly much better than the ugly Tmax.

I have the best results using Kodak D76 as a developer for this film.

Just try one roll and you will fall in love!

    Beautiful pictures as ever! I think I've already expressed my jealously of your OM4! I have shot one roll of expired Neopan and it came back completetly blank - no edge code even :-( I've another expired roll, and some expired Tmax p3200 and Delta 3200, but not sure whether to risk them :-( I've bought some indate Neopan 1600 and Tmax p3200 - I think the problem with grain and contrast of the delta and tmax is probably a result of being pushed as both films true iso is 1000 iso. Though I have heard you can push neopan to 6400 iso :-S
