    As I use Android I can't say much about this. Most looks in apps are based on basic settings and can be done with apps like Snapseed and so on.

    Despite of that I like to have control of what happens to my photo. Of course sometimes you get descent results by just one click. But normally this is not my way.

    When I think of Hipsta B&W films - these are the ones I think of as being the best candidates where I will concentrate :
    AO BW
    US1776
    BlacKeys Super Grain
    Claunch 72
    BlacKeys Extra Fine
    BlacKeys 44

    My favorite BW films are:

    AOBW
    BKBW - esp with Watts
    BlackeysXF
    Frutiger - without the frame
    Kitsune
    SPRKT_BW - with the grain turned down
    Uchitel - with film slider move a bit to the left

    I'm a fan of clarity. Vicuna, Beard & Jane are good with just about any BW film.

    Aristotle and Arjan are particularly interesting as you can get a monochrome effect with different lenses.

    *Interesting to note the effect of using various flashes (especially colored) with the various B&W films ... Triple Crown is also interesting with B&W films .

    I hear ya ! I suffer from being a "completeist" in that I have to have one of every color or pattern in a series (socks , shirts, plastic food storage bowls , ) etc. *I'll work on a respectable profile picture :)

    Back on topic - thanks to all the replies ! The replies have taught me to think more in terms of tones , and to compartmentalize" ranges of B&W looks . One I've discovered from this excursion is : Wonder + Aristotle + Apollo (quite a rich , black , look !)

    Is it though? :sneaky: I don’t want to throw a spanner in the colour-coded works, but is teal really the colour to transition from green to blue? Just asking.:whistle:
