ILFORD ORTHO PLUS is an orthochromatic shooting film. Although originally intended as a technical film, ORTHO PLUS offers interesting potential for shooting, thanks to its fine grain and sharpness.
ILFORD ORTHO PLUS is perfectly suited for landscape photography. Its limited spectral sensitivity to blues and greens makes it suitable for handling in the laboratory under inactinic light (beware, however, that this film is relatively sensitive).
Its orthochromatic nature (low red sensitivity) allows it to deliver images with denser, higher contrast reds and oranges than panchromatic film.
The ILFORD ORTHO PLUS is DX-encoded for a sensitivity setting of ISO 80. This is compatible with natural light shooting conditions. When shooting in tungsten light, it is best to overexpose by one value (ISO 40).
