Ilford Ortho Plus 80 120 Film - Medium Format
Our Price: £8.00 GBP100370
NOW IN STOCK!
A wonderful new medium format 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.

Also available in 35mm format

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.

This is not a general purpose film and my results aren't optimal. I tried to make landscape images in winter light in the Faroes: this film would probably be better in good autumnal sunshine where there are lots of reds, which will render darker and interesting. Think carefully about the application when buying an orthochromatic film like this.
Ortho plus is a brilliant B/W film, especially for landscape photography. Although you can shoot anything with it really.
Develops really well in ilfosol 3.
Shot and developed my first roll of Ilford Ortho in 120, and what I have seen so far looks very promising.
Renders a nice range of tones in my opinion.
Was expecting more contrast from the film, but if im honest I have never been happy with the levels of contrast from any film. This could be down to the development choice. Example shots attached have had the contrast bumped slightly in post.
Interesting to note that the one shot I exposed inside needed more of a contrast push. This was metered at ISO40 and the outside shots at ISO80 as per box instructions. Would be interesting to see the film pushed further.
Example shots were shot with a Bronica ETRS and developed in Caffenol CL - 90mins at 20 degrees.
