Ilford SFX 200 135-36 is a medium-speed, panchromatic black-and-white film designed for creative photography in both picture-taking and print-making. Its extended red sensitivity is especially suited to use with a filter to create special effects. Unusual tone rendition ensures interesting results for various subjects: portraiture, landscape, townscape, architecture and other subjects. The emulsion is coated onto a transparent synthetic base. This provides superb long-term and dimensional stability.
- Use with Filter
Tips for Use:
Use a deep red filter to render skies almost black and most green vegetation almost white. The deeper the red filter, the lower the density of red-light absorbing areas on the negative and the higher the density of red-light reflecting areas. On the prints, these areas will be reversed: low density areas will appear dark, while high density areas will be rendered light.
Load into, and unload from, the camera in subdued light.
Before and after exposition, store the film in its black, light-proof container. If not promptly done, light may infiltrate the base materal.
Handling: Film Roll
Keep the film roll tight after breaking the unexposed adhesive label. This prevents the film from rolling to "spring off". Follow this procedure after unloading the film.
