A wonderful new emulsion: designed for situations requiring high-resolution detail and fine grain. Its colour sensitivity is skewed towards green and blue with two benefits: landscape photography will look particularly dramatic, and the film can be handled safely under dark-red safelights for easier processing and development.

Rate at 80 under natural light and 40 under tungsten light for optimal results.

And don't forget to submit a review with sample shots as soon as you've had a chance to play - so that the rest of the community gets to see 'real life' results!

Also available in 120 medium format.

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.

Great for sunny walks

Really happy with the results from this stock, was expecting the decreased red sensitivity would have a negative impact but quite the reverse - good contrast and well controlled grain paired with reasonable exposure latitude. Will definitely be adding this to my list of preferred B&W films

Ortho Plus 80 was only available in 4×5 for a long time, but in late 2019 Ilford made it available in 35mm and 120 formats. So, of course, we wanted to try it out. For our Ilford Ortho Plus 80 120 film review we put a roll in the Hasselblad took it outside the house. This was shot during Lockdown, that’s as far as we could go!

It was nice to be able to use the Hasselblad, even if it was taking photos of very familiar surroundings. We also were interested in what results we would get from orthochromatic film. It has a lack of red sensitivity, that means that reds and oranges are rendered darker with stronger contrast than standard panchromatic films.

Even though the film is 80 ISO, we were able to shoot it handheld as it was a sunny day. The images are really sharp with nice contrast. The blacks, in particular, are very strong and give the photos a crisp look. Unsurprisingly, for a slow film in medium format, there is plenty of detail there, even in the shadows.

We will definitely shoot this again and look forward to trying it out in 35mm once we can travel a bit further afield.

I love texture and this film delivers!

This film is amazing at bringing out the texture of a subject -- faces, wood, sharp edges. The fine grain gives superb detail. I was also surprised by what I could capture in relative darkness when shooting at f/2.8. I've never shot ISO 80 before and I was expecting to need a lot of light but this Ortho Plus performed really well.
