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 .
Okay..... this is sooooo off-topic :whistle: but hey, where's your profile pic? ;) :whistle: :sneaky:
So fine.... I'm a bit OCD and like to see a profile pic matched up to a profile name. :coffee:

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 :)

*Yes , lights to darks and by fabric type ... My early childhood hero was NOT an action figure - but rather : "Mr. French" - Cissy , Buffy & Jody's butler from the TV series : "Family Affair" ! :)

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:
