This film has very low latitude and takes careful metering (or a willingness to experiment and perhaps lose a few frames) but does reward you with extremely fine grain and a sharp edge to detail. I shot a roll at the Notting Hill Carnival 2019 in a Hexar AF on auto exposure, and had some shots blow out almost completely, but when they worked I felt they had a great atmosphere.
I'd advise shooting in even light (for beginners) or metering carefully for the subject - overcast conditions, or consistent building shadows for street photography. You will simply not be able to capture detail in both bright and dark areas.
Note that this is hand rolled and not DX-coded, so you will need a camera that lets you manually select ISO. I stand developed for 1h in 1+100 Ilfotec LC29.
Having used both Washi V and A, I decided to try S.
Contrast is phenomenal and the grain makes the contrast superb. Also being ISO 50 it is much easier to find a camera which can meter correctly.
The detail on this film even when scanned at low res is really good, in brick buildings you can count every single brick.
I would highly recommend this film (as with all Washi film)
My god this because my go to 35mm b&white film. I tried this for a portait session indoors, with a mixture of shadows and ambient light through large church windows. Please follow the simple advise by everyone, be careful with your metering! You can easily lose detail because of the high contrast. But when you nail it, it's like there is no grain. Fabulous product by great guy (Lomig at Washi).
Lovely film. Very clean grain and VERY contrasty - wouldn't want to get my exposure wrong as it's not very forgiving. But with the correct exposure it looks great.
One of my favourite films. For really diferent ressults in a Sunny days.
