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 detail and contrast

Easy to use film for those landscape and travel shots where the subject isn't moving fast, good sky definition without any filters. When processed in Paranol-S there's a lovely fine grain and good contrast which makes the film easy to scan. Recomended and will buy again.

Unbelievably clean. Inky blanks

It's really difficult to get into words just how clean an image can look on Pan F. With the right exposure, you can almost forget you're looking at 35mm. It doesn't have a wide exposure latitude at all, but this is part of the character of the film, and if you play into it, you can get some very dramatic shots.

I'd say this is an advanced film - it's very slow speed, very unforgiving, and I found the emulsion very prone to attracting dust which made scanning hard work. However, the final images were astonishing. I'll definitely be shooting more.

Amazing details

It's not the easiest film to work with - lazy metering on a very sunny day didn't go unpunished! - but when I got it right, the photos I had looked amazing. The detail this film gives is superb, the grain is very fine and the contrast is right where I like it to be. Apparently this film needs to be developed comparatively soon after exposure, so it may not be ideal for someone who likes to send B+W films to a lab in batches, but that's a minor downside for a film of this calibre.

Wonderfully fine grain film

Pan F is a really nice film to shoot on a sunny day, but as you may have read in my previous review of this film, it's also fantastic for "streetlight photography" if you use a Tripod and cable shutter release. The images it produces are wonderfully fine grain, and I plan to be shooting more of it during the British Summer.
