[QnD] ISSF’s Guides to film rolls

This post is the first one in a series I call QnD or Quick and Dirty, because of their unpolished presentation.

I want to talk briefly about the IStillShootFilm.org’s guides to commercially available film. They come in two flavours, colour and black and white. The guides are not free, unfortunately, they cost US$ 6.99 each or US$9.99 if you buy them both.

Films are divided by manufacturer and there is a description for each kind of film. All different formats are covered in quite detail. The reviews don’t stop to major brands like Fuji and Kodak but also cover some less famous and more eclectic ones.

Good guides, can be useful to discover new films and learn a couple things about the films you already know (for instance, the quality level of the Agfa Vista Color).
