Ilford SFX 200 overview

  • 1Description

A unique black and white negative film with extend red sensitivity, SFX 200 from Ilford is a medium-speed film with peak red sensitivity to 720nm, which can further be extended to 740nm with the use of a deep red filter to produce infrared-like results. It has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 200/24° along with a wide exposure latitude and tonal range, and is well-suited to fine art and pictorial applications. When used without filtration, full panchromatic sensitivity is afforded, however when filtered with yellow, orange, and red filters-with deep red filtration producing the most pronounced effect-skies can be rendered a dramatic black and vegetation will be depicted as white.

Ilford SFX 200 reviews

SFX 200 Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite film for over 7 years. I use this film for everything. It has outstanding tonal range and picks up the infrared spectrum where matters most. When shooting still-life with hot lamps it will really bring out the subject and allow for some very nice glow. In portraiture it is the best outside, hands down. It make the subject radiate. Landscapes is where this film shines. It really can capture some brilliant skies and brings detail to everything the sun touches. Plant life jumps out of every part of the frame and water darkens just enough to set it apart from the rest of the world while remaining unique. The only downside to this film is the scan quality. It is quite grainy for the film speed and while the scans are good, can't really compete with a nice ISO 50 speed film. However, in the darkroom the film performs fantastic. It enlarges nicely to 11x14 and works very will with a fiber based, semi-matte paper. Overall I recommend it highly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Deep Red film (not IR) Use a deep red filter with this film. Produces nice contrast. Remember: if you can't see through the filter, neither can this film @ ISO 200. If you want to use a 720nm filter (b+w 092 or equivalent), the settings are at bright sunlight (sunny 16 condition) at F16, exposure is 2 min. I shot at F32 with a 8 min exposure. Anything less is useless. You can probably go little more... This is primarily because this film is very less sensitive to IR and all the pictures are through the red leak in the filter. So, if you are expecting white trees, you are out of luck :( . Oh, and at this setting, the you will have a lot of grains. Conclusion: use it with a deep red filter and not any larger wavelengths.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easiest IR film to use, good results I used this with an R72 filter from Hoya. I ended up getting some great results. Sunlit foliage whites out, and blues come out very dark to give a pronounced wood effect. IR is hard to shoot with, but the results are very rewarding. Of the three IR films I could find available(Ilford, Rollei, Efke), this one is a tie for best (I got my best end results with Efke's IR film, but it's more expensive, harder to find, and harder to use). Overall, Rollei's IR film has a less pronounced effect and is much more delicate. Some tips for using the film: Exposure: It's difficult to get a good idea of exposure time when using these nearly opaque filters, so I recommend bracketing about 5 stops the first time you use this film. A good starting point with this film/filter combo is the exposure level that corresponds to f/22 and 1/4 sec. on a sunny, cloudless day. Loading: I had NO problems (fogging) loading this film indoors. Although tripods are a pain, with IR film, they'll make your life alot easier when it comes to composing and focusing. Also, you should probably get your cable release out while you're at it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Film this film requires a dark Red Filter to show best results, I used the R72 from Hoya and reduced 4-5 Stops ( bracketing is recommended), Results where out of this world!, extremely recommended.! dues the nature of the film there is some grain but definitely is part of the magic of this film

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Film Unlike many other infrared this film isn't as sensitive as others. What I mean is loading your camera you don't need to be in pitch black. I personally load it in a low light location. Beautiful pictures it takes and cool effects
Date published: 2013-12-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Loaded this film indoors during daytime like any other film with no problem. Used it with an 89b filter at about an ISO of 25. Loaded it into a stainless steel tank using a changing bag marked not IR safe indoors with subdued lighting. Developed like ordinary film using recommended time. No fogging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SFX film Now that kodak is out of the infrared film business this is a very good substitute. I've tried it in a Holga and a Yashicamat124G hand holding a red filter and obtained decent results. No need to load in complete darkness. I was able to reload film in my car. I am happy with the pictures, now just need to find a decent 120 format film scanner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good B&W Film With Creative Punch I've been using this film for awhile. It's versatile in that it can be used as a regular B&W film with good tonal range or it can be used as a slightly infrared-sensitive film with a red filter. I have not tried a true infrared filter which might heighten the infrared effects.
