With so much scanning by digital cameras these days and less optical printing, an Ilford, Scala like, B&W transparency optimized film and chemistry kit should do well.

maybe a black and white true ISO 800 fine grain film to replace Fuji 1600--which I still miss.

Based on the colors used, how about an retro orthochromatic film and an IR B&W film? (neither likely, especially the ortho)

Ilford has a fairly comprehensive lineup at the moment, if I were to take a guess I would say its maybe a faster (800 1600) traditional grained film. Maybe even some True IR film with a wider IR sensitivity than SFX. Other than that I have no clue what it could actually be.

ISO 800 with normal contrast, rather than designed to be pushed, would be interesting to me. As would be a a black and white film with inherently limited density so highlights will never block completely, like with C41 films, that could be marketed to beginners and street photographers.

There is little need for high speed sheet film so I am going to guess the other way - a new formula iso 50 film.

It will be three different products. And latest news is that one of these products is a new, improved Multigrade V RC paper.
Very good news!

I've seen the results from one photographer testing it. It's superb.

Agreed. Neopan 1600 was fantastic at EI 800.

I'd love that for street.

My guess would be a native ISO 800 and some instant b&w film. Instant is where all the money is and maybe they want to chip away from Fuji's Instax film dominance?

I'll be waiting for the release of Ektachrome 120mm, (the slide film for photographers with particularly tall cameras.) and waiting, still waiting. This may be a long wait.

I guess it will be
- Ilford Ortho in 135 and 120 (so far only available in sheets for years)
- Multigrade V paper.

Cheers, Jan

So when is the big announcement? The 24th is already here, don't see anything new on their site. It's afternoon in the UK already.

Whoa! That’s cool. For some of us, anyway.

I think an iso 80 film will be a great new choice!
Since I don't know the difference between a Pan film and an Ortho film, I'm hoping it will look like Pan F 50, but with a bit more speed.

Well, I'm not on any social media platforms so depend on vendor websites to view new or updated products. There is still nothing on Ilford's site about the new film.
So someday, hopefully these jokers will update their website and give a full rundown on any 'new' film they are introducing.
For living in the 'information age' it sure is surprisingly hard to get information.

I wasn't sure what the characteristics of ortho film were, but this discussion on the largeformatphotography forum is helpful.

in part:
"Orthochromatic film, or pan film with a #44 renders foliage and shadows in a way that is difficult otherwise. It is a specific "look" that comes from the red not being recorded and the blue and green predominating. Skies are lighter, shadows and green foliage are lighter, while reds are rendered almost black."

Another user found the film very good for portraiture.

NEW PRODUCTS ANNOUNCED!

Including 5th Generation ILFORD MULTIGRADE RC paper and ORTHO PLUS film in 135 and 120 formats.

https://www.ilfordphoto.com/new-products-announced/

ILFORD ORTHO PLUS

We are expanding the world’s biggest selection of black & white films with the addition of ILFORD ORTHO PLUS in 135 and 120 formats. As the name suggests this is an orthochromatic black and white film (all other ILFORD and Kentmere films are panchromatic) rated at ISO 80 in natural light and ISO 40 in Tungsten.

“Our Ortho film was designed as a technical, high-resolution copy film for negatives and has been available in sheet format for some time. We know photographers want choice and love to try new films and so we have now coated our Ortho emulsion onto an acetate base for 35mm cassettes and 120 rolls. We believe ORTHO PLUS offers superb photographic potential thanks to its fine grain and sharpness and some of the results we have seen are stunning.” Giles Branthwaite, Sales & Marketing Director.

The blue and green sensitivity of this emulsion enables the film to be handled in deep red safelight conditions making processing and inspection easier. Its lack of red sensitivity also means that reds and oranges are rendered darker than panchromatic films.

ILFORD ORTHO PLUS will be available from early November. Check your preferred stockist for pricing.

Thanks lynnb for the quick explanation. I guess I will try a roll sometime, but no rush.

Something else to try and lovely to see a real film rather than some long lost roll of X ray film found in a bunker in Austria...

It was the ortho! Could be interesting. It is an existing emulsion, but could be fun in roll film. Time to start digging into old photo books for filtration and usage recommendations.

Then I was looking for cheap 4x5 film, the cheapest was ortho.
I wouldn’t mind cheap 135 in bulk, be because even Kentmere is 50 now instead of 29.

So a film that gives results a bit like you've got a green/blue filter stuck on your lens?

Disappointing. I'd hoped for a film that is a bit less sensitive to blue so that clouds stand out a bit.

Plenty of film that do that, Ilford SFX has enhanced red sensitivity, so do the Rollei/Aviphot films. Continous tone ortho films on the other were only available in 4x5 and up.
