    Looks like a success! I really like Shanghai GP3. I have had a lot of great pics from it.

    @neanderthalis, @kiri-girl in all honesty, I'm not that fussed, there is no lightproof layer between the film and backing paper, so you get a lot of dots showing through, even without light leaks. This might be nice occasionally, but not consistently. I prefer Ultrafine Xtreme 400.

    @adam_g2000 It is ironic that you said that. I just ran a fresh roll of that in my Holga 120 Pinhole & ended up those dots. I had thought it was a fluke or a lose camera back. When I wrote that earlier comment, I had bought a batch 3 years ago and kept it in cold storage till I ran out. I recently bought another batch of which I tried my first roll. I wonder if the formula/assembly is different.

    I don't recall seeing the problem in the batch I bought in (I'm guessing) October last year. This seems new. It's in the photos I shot and developed last night too. Dang, hate it when a good thing comes to an end.

    @neanderthalis It only seems to be an issue in 'blocks' of like dark areas, if you are doing something with lots of variation in contrast, it's unlikely to be a problem, though that's a bit restrictive. And, if I have a style, I'd say I like areas of blocks of tone ;)
