Ilford was founded in 1879 in the English town of the same name. They are B&W royalty in the photography industry thanks to their 140-year heritage and their support for photographers with chemicals and development as well as film. In the mid-20th Century they produced several well-regarded camera lines (including one given to Princess Elizabeth that was later stolen!) but today they are focused on producing the best films and development processes that they can.

I used Ilford Pan F Plus with ISO 50 - for me, it works best for architecture / street photography when the sky is rather cloudy and overcast - I tried using it for portrait photography when the weather was bright and sunny and I wasn't satisfied with the results. I love how balanced this film can be with the right exposure - the grain is low, and contrast, highlights and shadows are just right - not too flat and not overdone. Definitely will use again!
Pan F was one of the first black and white films I tried when I decided to get back into film photography around 2012. Prior to that, my only black and white film experience was as a teenager, with a roll of Kodak BW400CN. This was due to it's easy availability at the local Coles (supermarket) and ability to be processed in regular C41 chemistry at the local 1-Hour Photo options.
So, when I started to buy my own film camera gear and browsed B&H Photo for stocks to try, I gravitated towards lower speed films, including Pan-F, due to the fact that they advertised lower grain, with higher sharpness and contrast. And for myself, being fresh-off the back of completing my multimedia degree learnt through the digital-embracing photography courses I did, that these were always good factors to look for. Regardless of that early misconception, I truly enjoyed the look of lower speed films like Pan-F, Ektar, and Fujicolor 100.
I tried this film before for some portrait work and was very pleased with the results. I have been shooting some long exposure landscape and seascape lately due to the current situation and wanted to try this film to smooth water with a long exposure and rocks in the sea were the perfect subject. I absolutely love the images that it produced with a 9 stops ND filter it was perfect. I just love the contrast and how it handled the scene with highlights and shadows as well as the fine grain on the prints, certainly my goto film now for water features and long exposure.
An incredibly low grain and high quality film which won't leave you disappointed.
Rated at box speed of 50 ASA, you will most likely require a tripod for the best results. That being said, this film would suit an array of different photography styles and I can't wait to go and shoot a other roll!
