35mm BW Film - Film Ferrania ORTO (1 Roll)
1 Roll / 35mm / 36 exp / ISO 80 / DX Coded / Process: Standard BW
Shoot at box speed
We understand that modern films are very flexible, but Orto is based on a classic chemical formula that responds best when shot at the listed ISO of 50.
Shoot in Daylight
Orthochromatic film should only be shot in daylight. Avoid shooting in artificial light.
Make Your Own Scans
Our films are unique compared to most modern films. As a result, we have found that typical lab scanning can yield blocked-up hyper-contrasty images. If this happens to you, try scanning the negatives yourself for better results.
Our films are created to be enjoyed, not analyzed. For that reason, feel free to ignore the "rules" and do whatever you like. Share your results with us and if you have questions or comments, we are always available by email.
Ferrania Orto is chemically similar to P30 and, as such, the development instructions are roughly the same. Please understand that this is not a classic data sheet or dev chart, but a collection of best practices collected from users' feedback - and so it is subject to users' personal and evaluative tastes.
