Classic Camera Revival – Episode 178 | Ilford Rhapsody


We see a little silhouetto of a roll film, and for this episode, we’re a little high, a little low because Ilford matters! Yes, this episode is a rhapsody of Ilford films, and we’re going from Pan F+ to Delta 3200 and everything in between to discuss what we love about Ilford films, how we use them, development, and shooting them! But why are we focusing on Ilford? Well, that’s simple! Ilford has made a constant effort to support the photography community in being able to produce film at scale for the modern market and is often less likely to increase costs. They have options that cover everyone’s preferences and needs with a wide range of film speeds and styles and even two amazing budget films that punch well above their weight.

  1. Lovely episode, thanks a lot! 👍🏻 But I guess you forgot the XP2. I know its a C-41 process film, but it belongs in the Ilford B/W lineup. Keep up the good work! Greetings from Oslo, Norway
