Hello,

I'got several 400ft rolls of ILFORD PAN F cine Film TYPE 764. I know it's black & white but is it a negative or or a reversible film ?. And what is the sensibility (40 ASA daylight ?)
I can't find any information on this product that seems unvailable since 2002.

Thanks for your help

In old literature Ilford would give two speed ratings for their MP stock.

All B+W is inherantly reversable - but I suspect you just used the word in place of 'reversal' which would mean the film is made specifically to have the grain structure that helps with the process...

But if you didn't know that and you are just playing/testing with the film you now know you can have a direct +ve from this film - save yourself some $$$ that way

Pan F can be processed as reversal, probably at 50EI.

Chances are it has ink edge numbers. All the Ilford I came across at WRS had ink edge numbers, no keycode. Process it reversal and the edge numbers are gone for pracical use.

Just to add this stock must be very old so the asa could be a lot slower than advertised , must do a test before you shoot anything important .
