Silberra Pan 160 - 35mm Film
Our Price: £6.50 GBP100256
Silberra Pan 160 35mm film is a panochromatic black and white film with special anti-curl layer and an emulsion that is renowned for maintaining high detail through the full tonal range.
Pan 160 is a sharp film with strong contrast so it will deliver high impact final results. Optimal in natural light, and with increased sensitivity in near-infrared spectrum that gives landscapes an extra glow. This makes it particularly good for scenes with lots of sunshine - a wonderful summer film.

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.

I picked this up because Ultima 160 was out of stock and I hoped this might have a little bit of the same qualities.
It's a competent film in its own right but doesn't quite have that edge which made me love the Ultima. Yes, it's more forgiving to shoot and a LOT easier to handle than it's sister, but doesn't really stand out from the crowd. And, slightly unusual speed rating aside, the "medium speed pan" segment IS a crowd!
Probably won't be shooting this again (after the couple of rolls I still have) simply because you can get similar results from Kentmere or Ilford at a lower price.
Shot in a Canon EOS5 and developed in ID11 stock.
I've not used any of the Silberra films before - partly because I wasn't sure what they could do for me that I couldn't already get from the likes of Ilford. But I was pleasantly surprised by this film. Has nice tonality and detail. A little bit grainy for a slowish film but not unpleasantly so. I'd recommend grabbing a roll of this if you haven't tried it already.
Just wasn't as much of a fan of this as the Pan 160. Maybe it was me but I just found my results much more consistent with that emulsion than this one. Don't get me wrong when it worked it worked but when it didd't, well it just didn't. Not one I'd shoot again.
