    Have you tried TMX P3200? I have shot with it using 1600 ISO many
    times.
    Excellent shots Jim. For such a high speed film, the first 2 shots
    show great detail and clarity. I love the contrast and tones of the
    lonely plant (the third pic). Did you push the last shot to enhance
    the grain? I like it. It gives a very moody and dreamy look.

    I have shot TMX 3200. It was a while ago and I suppose I could give it
    another try.

    I'm still trying to get a B&W flower shot that I really like and isn't just
    OK.

    On the last shot, USM on the JPG, didn't need it on the 16x20" print. :)

    Yeah don't mind the Neopan 1600 myself. Grainy but not over
    the top, fairly strong contrast, but still with a good range
    of grey tones.
    Neopan 1600 @ 1600 or HP5+ at 1600 are my 2 main picks for
    this type of speed - HP5 has smaller grain, but much
    stronger contrast.
    Then of course there's TMZ 3200 - grain the size of golf
    balls and quite soft contrast - lovely for portraits of
    women and children.

    HP5+ @800 is about as much contrast as I could handle from that film.
    Perfect for a shipwreck... If someone has to photograph the women and
    children entering the life boats and rowing away. Of course if you're doing
    all that you may as well get a couple of the ship sinking. :)

    "Then of course there's TMZ 3200 - grain the size of golf balls and

    Definitely when shot at 3200 ISO. I use to shoot at 1600 ISO and it
    wasn't too bad. Now this was years ago when I was looking for that
    grainy look. I've moved on since then and now I like high speed with
    as little "grain" or noise as possible.

    third shot is really nice

    btw: HP5+ can be pushed in DDX to
    look almost like Neopan 1600.
    and if you can't find Neopan 1600
    in epay as much as you want, let me
    know and I'll explain which dealer
    you should be getting it from...
