The answer is a simple “yes”. With a worldwide increase in analogue film sales, instant cameras are becoming all the more popular, and thanks to opportunistic hipsters rummaging through vintage stores in hopes of a precious find, it’s safe to say that film photography has made quite a notable comeback.
Film photography is unlike our everyday, fast-paced lives. Just grab an old 90’s point-and-shoot film camera and go out photographing for a day – you’ll find that taking your time and choosing your subject matter is all the more satisfying. There’s a hidden magic in taking your time to choose your subject matter, and waiting for it to develop – and when it has – the feeling of holding the print in your hand will seal the deal.
We hope this inspires you to try your hand at this honest art form.
This brings us to one of the world’s leading brands in the film industry – Ilford.
Committed to producing genuine, silver based, black and white film for more than 100 years, Ilford offers analogue photographers a wide range of 35mm film, 120 roll film and sheet film.
- Commonly used in chemical still photography, 35mm roll film refers to the width of the photographic film.
- Originally introduced by Kodak, 120mm roll film was a popular choice for amateur still photography. Nowadays, it’s a favourite of amateur and professional medium-format photographers.
- Initially supplied as an alternative to glass plates for large- and medium-format film photographers, sheet film requires niche processing.
