Ilford Ortho 80 is a wonderful new medium format 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.

Also available in 35mm 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.

Fine B&W film

Contrasty, often dramatic, but very fine-grained. I like this film for the mood it brings to scenes that otherwise may have appeared a bit flat with other more conventional B&W offerings.

Perfect for Portraits and Landscapes

Shooting Ortho Plus on landscapes really produces images that could have been shot over a hundred years ago, such is the amazing look of orthochromatic film. But its in studio portraits that Ortho Plus 80 really shines, with the unique skin textures, the fine grain of the image. If your subject has blue eyes, you can also achieve a very ghostly look with the eyes.

Came out well

This was only the second film that I developed my own shots and got really pleasing results even though I think that my developing could have been better! I found the film really easy to use and exposure easy to achieve. All of my images came out reasonably well though I think that I may have made a schoolboy error in developing (perhaps not enough agitation which would affect the final result). The film is on the expensive side though. I shot all of my images on tripod which is probably a must with a low film speed. Overall very pleased.

Great results with an 1890s Kodak.

I had recently purchased a number of very old roll film cameras including an 1897 No.2 Bullseye Kodak with the intent of bringing it back into use and not confined to a shelf. I decided to test it out with Orthochromatic film which fit with the age of the camera and home developed it which was a new and fun experience.
The results not only proved the camera worked but the overall look with good contrast and fine grain had me buying another couple of rolls. Very happy.
