Tricky to handle but worth the effort!

First things first, this film is on a THIN base. We're talking Rizla thin and that makes it a little tricky to handle!

Not only that, the roll I had was about 8 full frames over-length so wouldn't physically fit in a Patterson reel! Hardly a problem getting all that extra but it would have been nice to know ahead of time - if I'd known I wouldn't have put it in the EOS that rewinds after 36 frames regardless :D

There were no published dev times for any of the developers I have in stock, so I took a punt at Rodibnal 1+25 for 7 mins 20 sec based on the Massive Dev Chart figures for Silberra 100 and 200. Seems to have been about right. The film dries amazingly flat, and scans nicely.

There's nice contrast, a good range of tones, and it's very very sharp! The attached scans were done at 1600dpi for speed, minimal post (slight levels tweak on a couple of frames where I mis-metered). There's plenty of detail left on the film for higher res if wanted.

Definitely one I'll be buying more of, just a shame they don't do it in medium format!

Nice tones.

I was pleasantly surprised with this film. It has lovely tones - particularly for detail shots. Has some good detail in the shadows. Grain is nice too.

loving the contrast on this

I shot this as my first return to black and white film, definitely impressed with the results from an outside shoot with fill flash

Perfect for: Street Photography

I found this film pretty underwhelming overall, it lacked the contrast I was expecting and was a total nightmare to load onto a spool when developing. I wouldn't recommend it over any of the Ilford stock for the price.

Nice, but...

I really liked the look of this film developed semistand in HC-110 1:160 for 45 mins - see sample image. My only problem is that I found it very difficult to load onto the plastic developing reels I normally use. After a while I gave up and dug out an old lasagna reel, which (barring the inevitable spots) worked fine.

I will be using this film again; it has the kind of tonal qualities I normally only see in much slower, high-contrast films.
