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.

Used this for a series of portraits to get a real low grain high detail result. Needs good light due to the low iso and NEEDS DEVELOPING QUICKLY AFTER SHOOTING
Developed in pyro 510, digitized at home with full frame camera. I found the 50 ISO a bit limiting, but with fast lenses it is still quite versatile. Grain is low but what is there is pleasing. The contrast and overall rendering of this film is really nice IMO.
Pan F is often thought of as too slow for general photography, but on a nice bright summer's day this 50 iso film is just perfect, and gives some lovely images. Don't be put off thinking you'll need a tripod, and I hope my latest images show that that's not the case when shooting it on a bright sunny day.
Having spent many years using the long-lamented Kodachrome 64, ISO 50 doesn't seem that slow for me, but it is slow compared to many BW emulsions out there especially if Tri-X or HP5+ are your usual go to films. In good light (and it was painfully bright for the first half of my latest roll), handholding is fine and the results super. If you want to play with using a narrow depth of field, the slow ISO also helps keep shutter speeds within normal limits. It isn't an "experimental" film, it is very predictable with known characteristics, but as such it is highly recommended when you need consistent, high quality, fine grained negs.
