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.
