About Ilford

ILFORD PAN F Plus is an extremely fine grain black and white film. When given standard development it has a speed rating of ISO 50/18° to daylight. In addition to its ultra-fine grain, PAN F Plus has outstanding resolution, sharpness and edge contrast. These characteristics enable the very highest image quality to be achieved and make PAN F Plus the natural film choice where fine detail and lack of grain are more important than film speed. Mural size enlargements from PAN F Plus negatives show an outstanding range of tone and detail when the film is carefully exposed and processed. PAN F Plus has good exposure latitude and gives prints with exceptional brightness and tonal range. PAN F Plus is compatible with all major processing systems including those which give the standard short fixing and washing times. There is no need to change standard processing techniques when switching to PAN F Plus from PAN F, or any other ISO 50/18° film. Development times, however, are different. PAN F Plus is very robust during processing, giving excellent results under most conditions, and will also tolerate processing conditions that are less than ideal. PAN F Plus 35mm film is supplied in DX Coded cassettes, suitable for all 35mm cameras. DX Coded cassettes mean that the film speed of ISO 50/18° is set automatically on most cameras. These cassettes are very strong and have the end caps firmly fixed to the body. This ensures the caps remain in position during rough handling. PAN F Plus 35mm film has a neutral base tint which enables easy print contrast assessment on the light box. For easy negative identification, it also has bold frame numbering for whole frames and letters to indicate half frame numbering.

Best B&W film available

This film not only blows away all others, but makes you wonder why anyone wastes time with digital B&W.

The 120 version of this film is great, lovely contrasts. Use it both in studio (Portrait) and out in daylight (urban/architecture).

A Long-Time Personal Favorite

By

from Edmonton, AB  -  Photo Enthusiast

For close to three decades, Ilford PanF (now PanF Plus) has been my film of choice for most of my black and white landscape, travel and fine art photography. The film is virtually grain-free and sharp, and has a wonderful tonal range. For those using a hybrid system, the film - not surprisingly - scans very well. The only shortcoming of PanF Plus relates to its speed: for optimal results, a tripod is strongly recommended (in my case, it is a virtual necessity because I almost always employ filters - either red, orange or yellow - when shooting black and white film).

The only one to use

By

from Livermore, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Just hands-down the best B&W film available; the only thing that I've ever seen come remotely close is specially processed tech-pan (now unavailable). If you're shooting B&W, don't bother with anything else. I'd especially recommend this film to beginners so they can see what film's really capable of. Chromogenic stuff like you get in the drugstore just doesn't come close.

just ... amazing

By

from San Francisco, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This is the perfect film for my RB67. Slow film + big negative = crisp, CRISP detail on GIANT prints. Great for still life and seascapes. I use Kodak regularly but when I want an ISO 50 film the first thing that comes to mind is Ilford. A great product.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
FRANK H  Experimenting with film in a Mamiya RB67. I bought a few in 35mm and let promising students try it out. It's excellent for nudes and landscape photography! Illford makes TERRIFIC PRODUCTS!!
Gary G  What's the best developer for this film?
PATRICK P  While there is no "best" developer for any film, I have had good results with one-shot development in Ilfotec DD-X. If you are a fan of pyro developers, Photographer's Formulary "PMK PYRO" (Pyrogallol-Metol-Kodalk) is also a good choice for Pan-F, but only with hand tank development (i.e., not with a JOBO or other continuous processor).
Shopper  looking for approximate kodachrome 25? a edwards
JIM S  This is a black and white negative film and Kodachrome was a color reversal film, so they are complete opposites, in that regard. As far as grain, I believe the Pan F as fined-grain, if not finer than the Kodachrome 25. It is good film for portraits still lifes and landscapes.
