Possible new (slow) films!

Postby Lachlan717 » 11 Dec 2012, 05:55

From Freestyle's latest newsletter:

"With the closure of the Fotokemika factory in Croatia, we have received many calls and emails inquiring as to what choices are available for slow speed sheet film besides Ilford Pan F. Adox CMS 20 II will be available in sheet film sizes. In addition, Adox and Rollei are working on a new 25 ISO film available in all popular formats including 35mm, 120 and sheet film sizes. We will keep you updated as to the availability of these films."

Very good news!!

A few things:

    First, slower shutter speeds. For instance, shooting Petzvals outdoors.

    Second, ultra fine grain.

    Finally, ultra smooth tonal transitions.

Really hoping that there is a replacement soon...
