    Pan-F (a bit of good news for a change).

    I communicated with Ilford a few days ago about another issue, but mentioned the rumours that Pan-F was about to be discontinued. They reply that there are no plans to scrap it. In fact, the death of Kodak Tech-Pan has given it a new lease of life because all the Tech-Pan users are switching to Pan-F.

    Good news. Better than that would be Pan F in sheets.

    I've sometimes thought I'd like Pan-F in sheets (imagine an 8x10 contact print!), but I fear the exposure times (outside the studio) would just get too long to be practical. Even with much faster films, waiting for calm air through a scene can be frustrating.

    David - thanks for the good news.

    when most of your lenses are not in shutters, you really prefer the loong exposures..

    not to mention the accuracy of the shutters i have

    PanF in 8x10 would be delicious!!!

    It could definitely be an interesting film in LF for studio portraits. The grain isn't so much the issue as the tonality. Pan-F is a nice looking film.

    great!

    I only ever bought one roll of kodak yech pan(ooops,typing mistake-but it sums up my opinion!)and I was NOT impressed!
    I love pan f-aside-it's the slowest film I use.
    8x10?-pan f is beautiful even in 35mm!

    Pan F

    I recently shot Pan F and Tech Pan concurrently. The Pan F was hard to fault with lovely tonality. The Tech Pan's failing for me apart from strange tonality was its lack of apparent sharpness despite the high resolution of a 35 Summicron, however I thik it would be great for portraiture

    "Good news. Better than that would be Pan F in sheets."

    One step at a time. I'll take ANY good news these days.

    I'm jumping for joy. My wife is also glad I'm not adding another 100 or so rolls of 120 film the her freezer space.
