Ilford Ortho Plus 80 is wonderful new 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.

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.

I really like the look of Ortho Plus. It gives a nice contrast and fine grain (quite hard to find focus under the enlarger). Definitely worth trying!
This stuff is a classic for very good reason. Lovely rich blacks, well-tempered even if your exposure isn't perfect, really detailed. Something to like whether you're a beginner or an expert!
I had seen both the official samples and the pictures submitted with reviews and it was quite obvious they were different, with the official samples displaying higher contrast, even in what appears to be overcast conditions - the stream for example. My own experiment more or less matched what I saw in the review pictures, with a considerably flatter look. I had to increase the contrast a fair amount in post but I'm quite happy with the way the scans held up. I have another roll which I will try to shoot in a more interesting location and lighting condition.
Banging contrast and clarity
I'm fairly new to shooting film but loved shooting Ortho. makes a nice change to HP5 which seems to be the go-to for choosing a black and white film. A fairly slow film (ISO 80), but gives gorgeous deep blacks and lovely grain. Love the contrast. Recommended for static shots to ensure plenty of light is given. I'd shoot this again in a heartbeat.
