Welcome to Analogue Wonderland's inaugural film release! Exclusively produced in partnership with one of our leading film suppliers, we have created WonderPan 400 to celebrate our 5th anniversary 🎂
Based on a best-selling black-and-white emulsion - but with a change in ISO rendering different results to the original box speed - WonderPan 400 produces monochrome images with strong contrast, dark blacks, and moderate grain in the midrange tones.
Over the coming weeks we will be exploring the characteristics of the film and how it looks shot at 400 versus the base emulsion 🎉

We have a special offer for processing and scanning WonderPan with our lab. Head to WonderPan Developing Package to choose your options!

I wasn't sure how these images would turn out using a 1950s Kodak Retinette camera but all I can say is the images Wonderpan creates and 510 Pyro (18 mins) are fantastic IMO.
My framing and guestimation of distances my need some work but I am in love with the images.
Works well on my woodland shots. The bold contrast works well with this subject matter I think.
Easy enough film but a bit too contrasty for me. Not a problem and for some subjects it will be ideal I guess.
I gave it another whirl on the Norfolk coast on a day that started off a bit grizzly and ended up liking it a bit more.
I over-exposed these slightly and then had a go at bumping up the contrast and sharpness a bit when I got the scans back.
It's worth trying, you obviously bump the grain up too but I'm tempted to print a couple to see what they'd look like as hang on the wall pictures.
Scans were as ever flawless before I started messing about with them.
Anyone else see what the Wondies did there..?
A ruse so cunning to get you to try pushing film you could pin a tail on it and call it a weasel.
I was tempted to peel back the label but that would have kind of ruined the game.
I quite liked not knowing what it was, other than shoot [whatever it is...] at 400.
***SPOILER ALERT: When I did peel the label back a tiny bit AFTER I'd finished the roll I found out it was [**film deleted**]...
It delivered a bit more grain and contrast in return for two more stops which came in handy - although I do like [**film deleted**] shot at box speed.
I smudged the river outfall on a sunny day (remember them..?) and liked the way it rendered the structure. DR tickled a bit because the tones were a little flat.
Then there's King's Lynn Minster on a dull, grey grizzlier day when the film still managed to deliver a bit of texture.
