I used to shoot with it in 120, and now I can still do it.
thank you, Simon and Harmon Ilford
Generally, the SFX filter is equivalent to a Wratten 89B so any filter that says it's the same as the 89B will do the job (e.g. B+W 093 and Hoya R72).

For the best example I have ever seen of what's possible with Ilford SFX have a look at " Quality in Photography" by Roger Hicks and Frances Schultz. On page 64 there is " Mill and Foliage" by Frances. OK it must have been 120 rather than 35mm and it was an ALPA but the effect is superb and appears grain free. The comments provided by the authors suggest that if it wasn't a SFX filter then it was the equivalent.
Hugh Milsom's Infra-Red Photography has an Ilford SFX shot which was taken in the Autumn and is, I think, a 35mm shot with a SFX filter which is also good but as it was Autumn the infrared effect, as he says, is not as dramatic as it would have been if taken in early summer.
For whatever reason's such as film size and time of year, the Frances Schultz shot has the definite edge and is the one to look at if you are a 120 shooter and want to know what' s possible with Ilford SFX and the right filter.

I was able to place an order with Ilford/Wynit today. I expect the film with my next shipment.... at least they haven't mentioned any back orders.

Dear Rob et al,
The SFX 200 film is unlikely to land in the USA and be with WYNIT until early April, For your information the 120 catalog number is 1901029 the 35mm 135-36 is 1829189 and the 'value kit' containing 3 x 135-36 + the SFX 200 filter is 1150654 : The filter on its own is 1911176
I hope you all enjoy using this film.

I didn't know you could order just the filter.. what I ordered was some 120, some 35mm and a few of the "value kits".... if you just order the filter Simon is it the same filter as in the kits?
