  1. I really like the Tri-X in Caffenol – they seem to have a better tonal range (contrast ?) although that is not to say there is anything wrong with the Fuji – especially with a little more tweaking.
    Horses for courses 🙂
    Did try Caffenol once or twice but if I was truthful – a total disaster. Looking at these, maybe I should give it another go.

    Ho, and you have got me looking at Fuji for a pocket camera, although I have more cameras than I should, it has got my interest. Maybe a used X10 for fun……..
    An interesting post – thanks.

    • Indeed, you might get more out of the Fuji with some additional tweaking – I decided to do only quick basic adjustments.

      I’ve found Caffenol to produce very nice results with a range of films, once I got it dialed in, which admittedly did take a little while. Once you figure out what works for you, it seems to be quite forgiving. If you’ve got specific questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

      Believe me, I’m in the same boat when it comes to a surplus of cameras. I’ve done reasonably well curtailing my acquisition of film cameras lately, and am even looking sell a couple, but then I’m quite satisfied with my film options. Similar satisfaction with digital had been more elusive, hence my recent purchases. Hopefully I’m done for a while. Good luck on your search – they do make pretty handy pocket cameras.

    • Yep, it’s a highly subjective thing; rather than apply my own judgements, I figured it was better to offer them without comment.
