Ilford Pan 100 and Pan 400 : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

An ex Ilford rep told me that the Pan films are FP4 & HP4 made for sales in 3rd world countries.How true this is I cannot say.I did print some negatives for a friend ( he purchased the film in Africa) that were Pan 100. Thet printed very well & held up to the newer emulsions. I also believe that these films are obtainable from Freestyle Sales under the Arista label.

But Fp4+ is a 125, not 100 film

-- Wayne (, April 15, 2002.

The Pan 100 and Pan 400 films are distributed in areas of the world where ILFORD does not have a corporate presence. They are based on FP4+ and HP5+ technology, but are produced to lower specifications and tolorances. While the quality is acceptable, these films are lower in quality than other ILFORD films.

Wayne: But sometimes FP4+ is an 80, not a 125 film...
