Many film photographers have expressed interest in this new (budget) film from Ilford. I bought a 100ft-roll from Adorama and have been shooting it for about a month now (~10 rolls shot and developed already). I wanted to share my experiences with it.
Development: I tried developing it in ID11 at first, but negatives came out flat and the development time was a bit too long. I started using D76 soon after that, especially since 1gallon D76 packages are cheaper than ID11 (for the same amt of film develiping). Initially I developed in stock D76 using the recommended time, but the negatives were still a bit flat and on the thin side. I was using a thermometer, so can't blame the temperature on that.
Finally, I decided I added 10-15% to the developing time and my negatives looked much better. I use plastic Rokinon-branded daylight developing tanks and reels (adorama sells them under their brand too). I agitate gently every 30 sec for ~10-15sec and I get no streaks (I did get that at first, when I didn't bother to agitate regularly).
I pushed two rolls to 800 a week or so ago and it turned out quite nicely. A bit grainier than usual, but I don't mind. I think it should be pushable to 1600 too.
I shot mostly with Olympus XA that I got on the RFF Classifieds. Overall, I like the film. It's about half the price of the other films in bulk (HP5, TriX). You may need to experiment with developing times since the recommended time gives thin/flat negatives. It's good for experimenting and for people who don't want to spend much on film and development. Below are some examples.
