Underlining its commitment to the world of black-and-white photography, Ilford
Photo is in the process of reintroducing various specialist films. Leading this
movement, and available from March 2007, is ILFORD SFX 200 film.



Ilford SFX 200 is a special film with extended red sensitivity perfect for landscapes
and similar subjects due to its ability to add high definition to green foliage,
cloud formations and open skies, especially when combined with the ILFORD SFX
200 Cokin 'P' series mounted red filter. It is also popular with architectural
photographers due to its characteristic for emphasizing contrasting textures.




A medium speed panchromatic film, Ilford SFX 200 is available in 35mm and 120
roll film. It has long been a favorite with specialist photographers, but ceased
production when the company went through a corporate reorganization in 2005. Because
of its sensitivity, the film will be produced in small quantities on a 'made on
demand' basis to ensure that it is always fresh and fully active.



Ilford SFX 200 is available in special value promotional packs which contain three
rolls of 36x135 film plus an Ilford Cokin P red filter.



An Ilford SFX 200 print competition is planned to encourage photographers to experience
the versatility of this film, and to put their artistic talents to the test. Full
details will be announced shortly.



A full technical data sheet on the Ilford SFX 200 film can be downloaded from
