    Does anyone shoot Efke film?

    I'm looking for a film to shoot with and B&H are out of stock with FP4. So I thought I'd try Efke. Does anyone have any experience shooting it? The website says it's very good for beginners, so I might give it a try.

    Edit: Nevermind, I'll try and shoot with TriX-400 or something a little more common. With a stack of options available, I'm a bit confused as to what I should shoot with

    I was wondering the same thing a while ago as I was interested in the R25. Everyone I talked to was very happy with it. If you want an FP4 replacement, I would check out Plus-X as well.

    I've never shot Efke, but most of the discussions I've read about it had to do with the slow stuff, like Aaron mentioned. If you want a close replacement for FP4, you should try Plus-X, although it won't be identical. I have not used Fuji Neopan 100SS or Agfa APX100, but they might be good alternatives too. There's nothing wrong with trying TriX though. It's a great film; very versatile and very forgiving. I use it a lot.
