New Arrival

These ten rolls of SHANGHAI GP3 film arrived from China today. They were probably delayed by the Icelandic volcano. They are cheap (less than £12 for 10, including shipping) and it will be interesting to see how they perform, black and white, so I'll be processing them myself. Reading various discussions suggest that the main problem with this film is its curliness.


  1. I've tried some of this and the new stock doesn't curl at all. The main problem is manufacturing defects, e.g. sometimes the sticker which glues the roll to the backing paper is missing (I had this once, it just curled up inside the camera). Developing times are about the same as FP4 from my experience.

  2. Hey All !!

    Congratulation to all of you. It is very nice blog site. This is my first time i visit here. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion, I guess I am not the only one having all the enjoyment here! Keep up the good work.

    Thanks a lot again.
