Ilford SFX 200 is a panchromatic film designed for creative photography. It is a medium-speed, black-and-white film possessing extended red sensitivity (peaked at 720nm; extended up to 740nm) and especially suited for use with a filter to create special effects.
Using a deep red filter, skies can be rendered almost black while most vegetation will become near-white. Unusual, dramatic tonal rendition ensures interesting results for various subjects, including portraits, landscapes, townscapes and architecture.
Other yellow, orange or red filters can be used. But effects depend on transmission characteristics: the redder the filter, the more dramatic the effect.
This film is also compatible with standard black-and-white developers.
