So, a couple years ago, the Plus-X 50 ASA black/white 16mm reversal stock became 100 ASA to the cheers and ovations of people everywhere.
I have not shot on the new Plus-X but have some questions.
I heard once, a few years ago, that the Plus-X 50 ASA stock was considered one of the sharpest film stocks ever, with smaller grain than even most color and negative stocks. First of all, is this true? Has the 100 ASA Plus-X changed with regards to contrast and grain? Does it look exactly the same?
I noticed that while shooting and transferring Plus-X is about 35% cheaper than doing the same with color negative, it is not too different than shooting B/W negative. Since you get more latitude with negative, I am guessing what you sacrifice is that strong contrast and low-grain quality of reversal. Is this true?
