Description

The U400 film is very similar to the U200 and shares most of the features: a high contrast mixed grain emulsion - which means it has excellent resolving power (therefore detail) but a softness of tone that you traditionally associate with classic emulsion.

Flexible with exposure, it can be shot down to 100 while keeping its lovely results.

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.

Decent images, difficult to work with

This film produces pleasing contrast images of a medium grain. The grain doesn't become too much even when developed in Rodinal 1 part to 50.

However, the film base is terribly thin making it difficult to load and liable to crease in the spool. Once that happens, which it will, the film base is so thin that it creases like paper, you will struggle to load it further.

Love the tonal range on this film, great for street and architecture. Handles low light well, and not bad in sunlight either.

Awesome.

My new favorite black and white film? No, my new favorite film!

For a cold somewhat dark morning, this film captured that mood and magnified it.

Loved the way it renders water and damp. It should be an excellent film to load into the Rollei 35 and shoot some street.

Like the results but a pain to handle

Really like how my test roll turned out. Shot at EI1250-ish and 75 mins in Caffenol semi-stand (1,2,4 etc min inversions) it actually came out a little too dense. The scanned images though look great. A pleasing contrast and good amount of detail while keeping the grain well under control. My limited test shots showed it looks great at 1600, and good at 3200 with shadows starting to block up a little.

As others have mentioned, the film feels like paper and it can be tricky to get onto a plastic reel without causing crescent-shaped creases. It was also difficult to slide the strips into a negative page. I suppose an upside to this thinness is it dries out much more quickly than normal film.
