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.

A good choice for handheld work in decent light (or tripod otherwise), providing high contrast and grain. Worth the effort if you can spare the stop relative to a similarly priced ISO 100 for landscapes, portrait and architecture but for more creative work I've achieved more interesting (though less consistent) results with Rollei's slower RPX 25.
I've toyed with Pan F 50 over the years and I keep coming back to it because of its super sharpness and high contrast look. I like that kind of look, and with the right light, it creates stunning images. It is not as versatile at dealing with all conditions as much as some other films due to its speed of course, but with the right light (either bright natural light or controlled artificial light), it creates stunning images. I always develop it with Ilford DD-X and I do so quickly because you can't store it exposed for as long as some other films. And at a 1/3 of the price of Acros, it has become my goto slow film recently and I intend that to continue, with Delta 400 being my current preferred option for faster requirements.
First roll and i'm already in love with this film. Beautiful contrast a fine grain. I used it for long exposure thanks to the low iso, it works like a charm. Some landscapes and other stuff, I had nice results. Obviously, as soon as you are in low light, you will need a tripod. A must have !
It's only recently that I picked up my dad's old 35mm Fujica camera after it spending a couple of decades in a box. I wanted to redescover film photography again. Ilford film was always my go to film when I shot in black and white back in the day, so I treated myself to a roll of Pan F+. Once loaded into the camera and my old green filter screwed on I headed out.
I'd forgotten quite how much I love this film. The contrast and blacks are wonderful. Minimal grain and buckets of character. It's a very versatile film and chances are you'll get great results wherever you point your camera.
I shot with the PanF plus 50 under natural light and studio light conditions and it really suits both types of lighting without a fail. Though because of the slow ISO you need natural light in quantity especially indoors to sustain a decent shutter speed if you want to shoot at box speed. It is absolutely fine with studio flash heads at ISO 50. The results are very pleasant soft skin tones and nice contrast and rich blacks under both lighting conditions. Recommended for portrait work definitely.
