Washi F is a special "Fluorographic" medical X-Ray film that is mainly used in Eastern countries for diagnosing lung diseases.

It combines the nice aesthetic of X-Ray films with the physical property of classic camera film. As there is no anti-halation layer it gives a very strong diffusion effect and high grain.

Ghostly Goodness

Love this film. Shot my first roll at box speed with an ESII, through an SMC Takumar 50mm f1.4. Not all the images were keepers (it did not fare well with detail in the middle to deep shot, due to the exaggerated grain) but got some fabulous, otherworldly shots of industrial architecture. Now I know its strengths, I can’t wait to shoot the other two rolls in my bag! P.S. beware light-piping on the first frame or two, even once you’ve shot through the first few wasted frames. Loading in the dark highly recommended.

Beautiful grain, incredible contrast falloff

I think a lot of people regard Washi stocks as 'artistic' film - unpredictable, gimmicky, not to be taken entirely seriously. While this is perhaps true for some Washi formulas, for me 'F' is the major exception and perhaps my favourite black and white stock.

Repurposed from film designed for chest x-rays, 'F' has a velvety soft contrast falloff - gentle points of black graduated all the way to milky, grainy white. There's a lovely soft highlight bloom as well - no need to pack a promist filter, 'F' has the look straight out of the can.

Even in high-contrast environments (see photo 2), detail is retained well and the grain really shines. The grain itself is big, crunchy, and oh-so characterful. Paired with a sharp lens, 'F' renders landscapes gorgeously. (I'm yet to shoot any portraits with it, so can't speak for its abilities there.)

'F' is definitely a little trickier than some stocks - it is prone to leaking, light piping, and vignetting - but returns much more reliable and consistent results than other Washi stocks I have tried.

The gentle, ethereal glow is a look I've tried to emulate with many other BW stocks - 'F' achieves it with such ease, and is a complete winner in my book.

VERY finicky, but, with great potential

I shot this to play with it, and I'm not sure i got the best out of it, BUT, it is like no film i've shot before. Very intriguing. Give it a go!

Slightly dreamlike effects

This film feels very thin and fragile (partly due to the thin emulsion and lack of halation layers I guess), and forget using a metal spiral to develop it. Shot at ISO 100, dev'd in LC29 1-19 at 20 degrees for 8 mins.

Light areas come out with a diffuse speckled grainy effect, and a lot of bloom around highlights. The haze and speckled effect means nothing really looks pin-sharp, but it all comes out slightly ethereal.

Shadow areas come out with really rich deep blacks, and I think this works best for low-key high contrast shots. I'd love to try some portraits with it. It's more sensitive to red than green I think.

Interesting and different

With the low ISO and generally experimental results (including the high grain), it is perfect for someone who'd like to experiment. In low light, there is scope for some creative effects (with or without a tripod, depending on what you want to shoot), whilst in daylight (especially bright sunlight) there are some interesting effects with light blooms and grain. Lovely contrast in all conditions and a softness that is actually quite endearing in a way.
