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 my 2nd review of PanF. But this time in relation to landscapes. I captured a series of wonderful landscape shots with it even though the light was fairly drab. Obviously I needed a tripod, as many people will using this film in anything other than bright light. But the low ISO50 works well in any light, as long as you can get the camera supported. For water based landscapes, it really delivers.
I'm no stranger to Pan F+, having shot quite a lot of it over the years in 35mm.
I've never shot it in 120 roll format though, until now.
Having recently purchased a lovely old Mamiya C33 I was keen to see what it would do with a roll of Pan F Plus.
It was a particularly overcast day, so soft light at least, though it was a tad gloomy. The film of course is ISO 50, it needs light and I just about got away with hand holding the camera. It can be quite unforgiving if you miss your exposure, but when you do nail it, you'll get some wonderful images. As many have said before, the grain on this film is almost non-existent and I always love how the film renders tones. It has a little more contrast than other B&W films and I love it for that. On 35mm this film was always in my camera bag. It looks like in 120 format the same will apply.
I love to shoot with Pan F50 at 35mm so thought I would give this format a try & it did not disappoint! Very dramatic contrast yet subtle grain, even when shooting on a gloomy day - will definitely be stocking up.
Excellent film virtually no grain even when using a focus finder in the darkroom. Exposure more critical, not good for sunny 16 rule but excellent for studio work.
Pan F has often been recommended to me. I've seen some amazing images with it, from pinhole to landscape. I shot a roll in my MF Fuji and developed in 510Pyro (see sample image) and it has a gorgeous look to it. It has a good deal of contrast and a more classical look (maybe not a technical term) compared to something like Delta 100. When it comes to slow BW films, it is my favourite. I cannot fault the images it produces.
A word of warning, I would suggest avoiding trying to push it in anyway and it is recommended to be developed promptly after shooting. I believe the latent images fades over time.
