    Ilford Special Portrait Film 124

    Just got a full box of 5x7 "Ilford Special Portrait Film 124" Emulsion# 19CL1201

    Panchromatic, ASA 125 (daylight), 100 (Tungsten), safety base

    No expirey date, most like past it. Definitely pre-Harmon

    Someone wrote on the box: "D76 -- 11min, 68F" which is convienent to know.

    Any ideas about what this film? I have never heard of it.

    It could be Ortho sensitivity, to give men a special "ruddy" look. Or it could be a studio flm like the old Kodak Ektapan.

    old thread no ideas
    no clues based on the box?

    I'd guess it to be similar to the specifically labeled portrait films of kodak
    something out of production since the early 80's or something
    just sounds like a very dated product

    It does say "Panchromatic" on the box. I am expecting a bit of fog in the film...no problem if it is even. I am going into the dark right now to pull a sheet out and to see if thee is any written info in the box.

    PS...just checked out a piece -- not too healthy looking. Some splotchiness and uneveniness seen from the non-emulsion side, but from not the emulsion side. Not much of an anti-halation coating on the back, but it darkened up quite a bit when it got wet. No other info in the box.

    "Portrait" historically designated film with a rough surface finish for pencil retouching (and hence some loss of sharpness). Otherwise it usually was derived from some standard (though often legacy) emulsion of the particular manufacturer.
