    Extended red sensitivity. With a #25 red filter I can get nice dark skies with puffy white clouds. I also love it for highlights on old, rusty steel in sunshine, or "popping" wood grain, especially on old, weathered wood.

    Not enough IR sensitivity to really turn foliage white, but dark skies and dark water are easy. I usually shoot it at 100 before taking the filter factor into account.

    I answered my own question by finding this announcement on Ilford's web site:

    We are pleased to announce that the product will be relaunched Worldwide during March 2007 in 135 - 36 exp cassettes and in the 120 format, in addition a special pack containing 3 x ILFORD SFX 200 135 - 36 and a COKIN "P" SFX filter will be made available. ILFORD SFX 200 will become a ‘MOD’ MANUFACTURE ON DEMAND item, where the film is manufactured on an approximately annual basis to ensure the highest quality of manufacture.
    I'm smiling.

    Definately gonna pick up half a dozen rolls to give it a go - if I like it more purchases will follow. The special pack sounds like a very smart idea too.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Sounds good; What happens without the filter?

    Without a filter it's a fairly regular B&W, with grain somewhere between FP4 and HP5, as you might expect.

    This has already been covered in another thread. Here is a quote from Simon regarding the re-introduction of SFX:

    Sorry mate...not 5x4

    Good news! Is there any way the SFX P filter can be used with a Hasselblad bay 60 mount?

    Or is the filter available in a 100 x 100mm size to fit the Hasselblad ProShade?
