I had never really heard of the film, but I have used many other ilford films and love them. I found out that it has heightened red sensitivity so when used with a r72 filter infrared results can be achieved. I bought a cheaper r72 off ebay, put it on my Minolta X-700 and headed out on a walk with my girlfriend. Unlike other infrared film it doesn't need to be loaded and unloaded in darkness. As the film was nearly 3 years expired, I had to overexpose it slightly. Although black and white film ages much better than colour combined with the near opaque r72 filter, I was unable to hand hold the camera still and this gave a unique way of shooting as I don’t have a tripod. I had to use natural tripods, which in my opinion gives interesting angles.
When using this film I’d recommend you use it on a bright sunny day, somewhere where there’s lots of trees or plants.
The film its self is very forgiving. I wasn’t paying that much attention to my exposure times as I was shooting in bulb so I just left the shutter open for at least 2 seconds.
