Adox HR-50 Film 35mm B&W ISO 50
A brand new film from Adox - announced in October 2018 and adapted from technical high-resolution film specially for regular use. Set to 50 ISO this film will produce ultra-fine grain and moderate contrast - and has been designed with travel photography and cityscapes in mind. Sensitive across the full range of visible spectrum this is a great film for experimenting with the use of different filters (including infrared!)

Adox is one of the oldest photographic brands in the world, established in Germany in 1860 by Dr. Carl Schleussner - who worked on early wet-collodion plates and X-ray plates. The company started marketing their own cameras in the early 20th Century, and introduced a line of B&W films in 1952 that became renowned for their sharpness of resolution. A difficult end to the last century saw the brand change hands multiple times - and now Adox films are produced by Fotoimpex across manufacturing plants in Germany and Switzerland. Their products remain very high quality with a focus on emulsions that resolve incredible levels of detail and contrast.

I've tried out a couple of the Adox films before this and have been impressed. And the HR50 did not disappoint. It has a beautiful tonality to it - quite contrasty but with very smooth gradations between the tones; just how I like my film! It also brings out the texture of the subject nicely.
I did find that the highlights could blow out a bit - there's not as much detail in there as some other films, which is possibly something to keep in mind depending on how you meter and what your camera is. But that's a minor quibble when the edn results are so good.
