    Hello,

    I'm new to this forum, and i recently purchased a Pentax K1000 with a 70-210 zoom lens(im not sure who makes it:blushing: ) and a 50mm lens from pentax for 150 Canadian. I've just started photogrpahy, and was curious as to which speed of film would be better for longer exposers, from 1 secod to about 3 hours, and anywhere in between.

    It's my first post here, and wasnt sure where to start in the forum, so i came here to introduce myself, and get one question out of the way. I just finished my first roll of film ever today, unfortunately i cant afford a digital yet, but soon, or maybe much later:lol: . Any tips will be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Tmax 100 used to be one of the fastest BW neg films for long exposures, and was my favorite. Although I haven't used in much the last 3 years or so, and i've heard that emulsion changes have changed it's characteristics.
