One of my photo's is in this years Steam Engine calender, shot on EFKE 25. Using the slow film I was able to catch the exact look I wanted right away without having to "set up the shot" I am certain that if I had been using even a 100 speed film I could not have got the look I wanted right then.

I find that the Efke 25 films are a perfect match for any camera that has a top shutter speed ranging from 1/100 through 1/500, which includes many, many rangefinders and others from the 1930s through the 60s. Even my Fuji GL690, which was probably built in the 70s or 80s, loves Efke 25 film. Ilford's Pan F 50 can be pressed into service if need be but it will not give the same look as the slightly older style emulsions used in the Efke films.
