Derev Pan 200 is the mid-speed film from a new range of B&W launched by FPP: adapted from aerial scientific photographic film and named after the forests of Ukraine.
Enjoy its sharp separation of green and blue tones (helpful for aerial photography!) giving the images a different look to typical panchromatic B&W films - and the great detail and sharpness you'd expect from a 200-speed film.

FPP is short-hand for the Film Photography Project: a US-based collection of projects headed up by the charismatic Mike Raso. They are most famous within the global film community for their podcast (entering it's 10th year in existence) as well as the associated School Camera Donation Program whereby donations are sought and sorted to bring analogue photography back into high schools and colleges all over the country. Not only that but Mike also runs the FPP store which sells a multitude of analogue film products all over the US and hand-rolls a fantastic selection of unique films. We are honoured to bring some of those films to the European market and hope you enjoy shooting them as much as Mike has making them!

Payment & Security
I put a roll through a Nikon F90X, and I have been pleasantly surprised by the results. It's sharp with really good tonal range and contrast, even in dull overcast conditions. I particularly liked the way it renders the different shades of foliage, making it stand out. The grain too is fine with a pleasing appearance. Unfortunately, there isn't too much information available for developing, so developed as per Silberra U200 in Rodinal at 1:25 for 8 minutes. Although acceptable, I think the film would have benefited from a little longer in the developer. It dried reasonably flat, making scanning easy. Overall, I really like this film, and, despite being a bit pricey, I will be using it again sometime soon.
I took this film to the coast over summer, so it was tested in a variety of conditions (bright sunshine, shadowy streets, electric-lit interiors), & I was so impressed with the results! Lovely soft gradation of light and shadows, nice representation of colour (sadly there weren't many trees to test the variation in "green" rendering) and, most notable of all, barely perceptible grain. This film is just... so smooth?! It would be perfect for an outdoor (garden / forest?) portrait shoot!
The Derev Pan 200 produces black and white images with good contrast and fine grain.
This is the first time I used it (in an old Ricoh Mirai, which I had also never used). I'm happy with the outcome. While it is a bit pricey for me to use all the time, I'll definitely be interested in using it again.
I developed it myself in Ilfosol 3 for 6m 45s and it seems to be fine.
I'm not long in the film photography game, but I really enjoyed using this film. The sample images are shot with an OM-1 with no filter, then stand development in rodinal. Its picked out some rich tones within the foliage in some difficult exposure conditions, and no fancy scanning shenanigans. It loaded easily onto the dev spool, and scanned nicely too. I'll definitely get another few rolls.
