Lots of character

This film will divide opinion but at the price, I’d recommend everyone giving it a go. It’s got a fair bit of grain (and not all that fine) which gives it character. I found that when shot at 200 (and even accidentally at 200) I’d get some creamy highlights and still be able to get decent contrast back in post.

Photos attached shot at 200 and developed in Ilford LC29.

Fantastic, value for money

Well worth the asking price, good value for money film stock that holds up very well against any other black and White stock I've used, very nice halations on highlights if overexposed

Hidden Gem

I was sceptical when I first bought this film. Everyone knows about ilford or tri-x but I thought hey ho... for £4 what’s the worse that can happen ey? Incidentally it was my first attempt at pushing film and I have to say I was not only delighted with the results but also astonished!

The highlights were beautiful and it had a dark sombre mood to it. For those who want their photos to be as smooth as silk maybe this isn’t for you. However, those that don’t mind a slightly lumpy yet buttery mash this will taste great to you!
