      Comments about Ilford Pan F Plus 35mm 100' Roll Black & White Print Film (ISO-50):

      Full tonal range in D76..excellent high contrast and still has tight grain when used with dektol diluted 1:5. B&H had the price beat even on amazon by about $9 a roll factoring in shipping etc

        Comments about Ilford Pan F Plus 35mm 100' Roll Black & White Print Film (ISO-50):

        I shot this film at 25 ASA and developed it using Rodinal 1/00 solution for 15 min. The results was amazing in terms of grain, tonality, contrast, and sharpness. The only drawback was when I tried to use a red filter for a bit of sky drama. It really does not work at all. It has to be used with UV filter at best. I wish it had more red sensitivity, but you can not have it all.

        If you want the best definition, lots of pics, big prints and no grain, I think this is the best option

        Comments about Ilford Pan F Plus 35mm 100' Roll Black & White Print Film (ISO-50):

        How do you really review film, objectively? I'm not sure it's possible. Different photographers have different film needs. Pan F excels at being sharp, and having a very distinct contrast. Some photographers prefer to start with flat film, and build up contrast in printing or Photoshop. I understand this viewpoint, and tend to agree. Still, there's just nothing quite like the look of Pan F, and it works really well for a great number of subjects. And buying it in 100' rolls is an economical way to shoot it. My all time favorite film stock.

            Great low grain high contrast film . It can sometimes be a challenge with the low ISO , but the results are worth it . Replaces Kodak's tech pan in my opinion .

              I shoot this film all the time. The things I like about it are virtually no grain and it makes excellent scans. You do need to watch your highlights though as they can 'get away from you' if you are not careful. I think most online reviews of PanF, that are negative, come from the lack of knowledge on how to shoot/process this film. 5 stars of 5 stars... Great product!!!
