Fujifilm Neopan Acros II 35mm Film - B&W ISO 100
Our Price: £14.00 GBP100154
Fuji's lead black and white 35mm film is making a COMEBACK!! The first wave is now available in-store - with refreshed artwork but the same fantastic quality of emulsion.
Acros is a great film for general use and long exposures, thanks to its low reciprocity sensitivity. A true professional film that delivers strong contrast and consistent images, and a firm favourite of pinholers around the world.
The sample shots below are from the original 35mm Acros to give you an idea of what it will deliver - we will update when we get new sample photos.

I discovered the original Acros when it had only just been discontinued (so fresh rolls were still available), but before Fuji brought it back to life – much to the delight of its legions of long-time fans as well as newly-converted Acros acolytes like me. I'm not someone who obsesses over minute differences between the "look" you get from different film types, but even to me, the "Acros" look really stands out.
I haven't done a scientific comparison, but my initial impression is that Acros II feels every bit as good as its predecessor: low grain, great contrast, sumptuously smooth tones, clear film base and minimal curl for easy scanning and archiving. Its ultra-low reciprocity failure is legendary – one reason why it was popular among astrophotographers doing hours-long exposures of the night sky. I have never attempted anything quite that ambitious, but among my sample images there is a 45-second exposure of a seascape, and it was oddly satisfying to read Fuji's datasheet: "No exposure compensation is required for exposures at shutter speeds of less than 120 seconds."
Some reviewers have compared Acros to Rollei Retro 80S. But as much as I like Retro 80S (you can see my five-star review on the product page), I have to admit that the film is unforgiving of underexposure. Acros, on the other hand, handles both under- and over-exposure beautifully. And accurately exposed photos have an almost HDR quality; dodging and burning in the darkroom reveals frankly incredible levels of shadow and highlight detail – detail which I never expected to capture when I pressed the shutter. This is one reason why I love Acros and I'm willing to, at least occasionally, pay a premium price for it – while marketed as a professional film, it is actually also a great choice for beginners and enthusiasts, if only as an occasional treat. It makes me look like a better photographer than I am, and I can think of no higher compliment than that.
Excellent film, pin sharp, fine grain, great contrast, clean whites, rich shadow detail and lots of latitude.
It's an outstanding film, but expensive. It's very similar to Rollei Retro 80S... but double the price, so I'm struggling to see if there's an advantage other than an extra 20 ISO points.
Get the cost down, it'll be 5 stars.
This film easily fulfilled all my expectations, pin sharp images with very little grain. However at the price point it is a film I would only use for specific uses, there are very good everyday films for a bit less expense.
I have used 2 of my Acros so far and processing in X Tol
I am absolutely delighted with the results,Printing to 12+16 the grain is difficult to see,beautiful contrast. And tack sharp.I can’t see me using anything else in the future,Expensive yes but for me worth every penny..
Looking forward to better weather to allow me to get out and about.My photography is general landscape and architectural.If you haven’t already tried it you should do so.Better results which I have had with my usual film of choice in the Ilford range,namely FP4+.
Would love to be able to let you see some recent shots,you’ll have to just take my word for it.
Well my first roll of this was terrible, I seriously mucked up the development. My second roll was much more successful! One of the sharper films that I've worked with. Wide dynamic range. Not all that its hyped up to be though. I hope Fuji do decide not to discontinue it after all!
