Silberra Pan 100 - 35mm Film
Fine grain, wide tonal range and moderate contrast are some of the features of this new film from Silberra. Similar to the Ultima 100 but with a thicker substrate, Silberra's special anti-curl layer makes drying and scanning even easier!
Silberra were formed in Feb 2017 as an arm of a Russian company that distributes Ilford and Foma across the country, as well as running one of Russia's top film photography shops. Since beginning the journey to create their own brand of film (in partnership with a local factory Micron) they have worked tirelessly to overcome the various obstacles and issues in pursuit of their goal: to make a new set of films from scratch that will deliver exceptional results to film photographers around the world.

Took this film on the Capital ring around the Docklands area - it perfomed amazingly with the subject matter - contrast and exposure latitude on this film worked amazingly for me. The most disappointing shots for me were down to my composition being too busy due to the excellent tonal range. I would guess that this film has some sensitivity into the infra red range as green foliage came out quite light at times generally enhancing the contrast for me.
Shot a roll of thisin an EOS5 with kit zoom lens a couple of weeks ago at a local church and then nature reserve. Had intended to develop in ID11 but used HC-110 by mistake (it's been a long week!) but the film didn't seem to care.
Even with the development oops, it gave nice contrast and a good range of tones with visible but pleasantly smooth grain. Shot at the slightly unusual box speed it may not be the most high impact film out there but it performs solidly enough that I suspect it's a prime candidate for pushing a stop or two, or possibly even pulling with the right subject matter.
Dried reasonably flat after developing and scanned easily on Epson V600 using Vuescan.
I want to say I am disappointed with the film but that is down to me. I developed it in Rodinal and its not the most recommended to use it mentions this on Silberra website. I am going to have another go with a developer that is more suited to it. Having said that the results are OK however a little grainy. It was a very bright day and the contrast was very high. I did read on Silberra website it is based on Agfa 100ISO film
Decided to give this a go as I’ve been testing out various 100 speed films to use as a regular sunny street shooter.
Shot at 100 and Developed in Rodinal
This has a little more grain than I expected but that’s not a negative for me, it’s a positive if you ask me. The grain is very pleasing to the eye and suits the look.
Will definitely be buying this one again.
IR sensitivity gives this film an interesting colour sensitivity profile. Gives skin a lovely look. Colours in trichromes come out interestingly... reds appear white. Colour sensitivity aside, this is a lovely film. Perfect grain and lovely tones. Easy to handle and scan. Pics here developed with 1:25 R09 for 8 mins.
