Silberra were formed in Feb 2017 as an arm of a Russian company that distributes Ilford and Foma across the country, as well as running one of Russia's top film photography shops. Since beginning the journey to create their own brand of film (in partnership with a local factory Micron) they have worked tirelessly to overcome the various obstacles and issues in pursuit of their goal: to make a new set of films from scratch that will deliver exceptional results to film photographers around the world.

We recently returned from a trip to Zermatt in Switzerland having shot a lot of film, around twelve rolls between us, and I heavily tested a number of new emulsions during the trip which I purchased from Analogue Wonderland. These included two new (to me) Silberra emulsions, Orta 50 and U200. They are both great films as it turns out! Indeed and in my opinion Orta 50 out performs Pan-F. The film has quite a tough cellulose base layer and having shot two rolls, one in an Olympus MJUii and one in a Nikon F3 I found the point and shoot did seem to struggle with winding this film and came up short at 31 exposures. I have noticed with other rigid base films that rubber rollers in point and shoot cameras sometimes slip, it could have just been a tight cassette of course. In the Nikon it wound perfectly and benefitted from the faster 1.2 lens that was attached. The film great contrast but I would recommend maybe shooting it at 100 iso in bright daylight conditions to stop the whites blowing out too much and making it easier to correct in post. I must also add that a benefit of this films base structure is its memory. It flattens perfectly and I found it led flat as a pancake in the film holder of my Epson V850. The black and white tones are strong and it has a charming effect. I am looking forwards to including these pictures in a book I am creating of our trip to the Alps. I am not sure if Orta 50 is a long term addition to the Silberra catalogue, I hope it is, but I would strongly suggest trying it out whilst available.
I have included a number of shots taken on a walk to Z'Mutt which was a tough trek but we found great views of the Matterhorn and left the tourists and their selfie sticks to the cable cars! I will also submit a review on Silberra U160, shot during the same trip to give some comparison. I hope these reviews give some insight into these great black and white alternative emulsions. Thanks for reading!
