Ortho Plus - New Films From Ilford!

Posted: 10/29/2019

Pre-Order New ILFORD Ortho Plus on 35mm and 120 from The FPP.
Ilford Film announced October 24, 2019 (at the NY PDN Photo Expo) the release of a new film - ORTHO PLUS.

From Ilford:

We are expanding the world’s biggest selection of black & white films with the addition of ILFORD ORTHO PLUS in 135 and 120 formats. As the name suggests this is an orthochromatic black and white film (all other ILFORD and Kentmere films are panchromatic) rated at ISO 80 in natural light and ISO 40 in Tungsten.

“Our Ortho film was designed as a technical, high-resolution copy film for negatives and has been available in sheet format for some time. We know photographers want choice and love to try new films and so we have now coated our Ortho emulsion onto an acetate base for 35mm cassettes and 120 rolls. We believe ORTHO PLUS offers superb photographic potential thanks to its fine grain and sharpness and some of the results we have seen are stunning.” Giles Branthwaite, Sales & Marketing Director.

The blue and green sensitivity of this emulsion enables the film to be handled in deep red safelight conditions making processing and inspection easier. Its lack of red sensitivity also means that reds and oranges are rendered darker than panchromatic films.

ILFORD ORTHO PLUS will be available early November at the FPP On-Line Store in 35mm, 120 medium format and FPP hand-roll 620 format.
