Pierro Pozella (PPP Repairs) Shoots Ilford Ortho 80 📷🎞
We were so excited to hear Ilford announce that they had invested in bringing Ortho 80 to market in 35mm and 120 film. The fantastic black and white orthochromatic film, meaning it's more sensitive to blue and greens so ideal for landscapes, is now available on our store.
To give you, and us, an idea of how this film performs in the real world, we asked our pal Pierro Pozella aka PPP Repairs to take some photos using the new Ilford Ortho 80 film and let us know his thoughts. He shot these wonderful images on his Widelux F6 for the panoramic images and a Norita 66 with 80mm F2 lens for the 1:1 images. All photos developed in Ilford ID11 1+1.
"The film is great because you can shoot wide open all day. The dynamic range is very good, so much information and detail is retained in both highlights and shadows. The tonal range is also very pleasing. It is also seems to be very adaptable when pushed in low light with impressive consistency."
