If you’re looking to get into shooting medium format film but aren’t sure which film stock to start with, check out this helpful 16-minute video by The Slanted Lens. Photographer Jay P. Morgan purchased all the B&W and color 120 film rolls he could get his hands on and did a shootout to compare the different looks and qualities.

Here’s a list of the film stocks compared in the video:

  • Kodak Ektar 100 (10:50)
  • Kodak Portra 160 (10:26)
  • Kodak Portra 400 (12:19)
  • Kodak Portra 400H
  • Kodak Portra 800 (13:14)
  • Kodak Tri-X 400 (8:16)
  • Kodak TMAX 100 B&W (4:30)
  • Kodak TMAX-2 400 (7:44)

“It ends up being a lot of Kodak products I still feel like are very strong,” Morgan concludes. “Ilford has a great place and there are people out there who are die-hard Ilford fans. And Fujifilm as well has a great look.”
