Digging around in my refrigerator bin for film, I found a roll of Kodak B&W 400, a C-41 film that is processed in the same chemistry as color negative film. I shot the roll in my Kodak Retina lla and took it along with the color roll from my Vito II to Picture Perfect.

I used to shoot a lot of this stuff as it was cheap, nearly grainless and wide-latitude. You can still get it on line, but the cheapest I've seen is $6.50 per roll at B&H Photo Video. Add in shipping and processing, and you're looking at fifteen bucks for a roll of negs — more than I'm willing to spend these days. It does make some nice pictures, though.
