I know plenty of people have done this before, but I thought I would compile a bit of a database of Film that I have used, and my experiences with it…  On completion this will be a database of all the film stock I have used so far. I have organised films by Brand, with some company information, also noting which are re-brands and what extant information I can find about what these re-branded films actually are.

Film List

Agfa Films

The original Agfa brand dates from 1897. Agfa-Gevaert, founded in 1964, with roots in two separate companies stretching back to the end of the 19th century produced various films, cameras and other imaging products for many years, which were highly regarded. In 2004 the consumer imaging department was sold in a management buyout to AgfaPhoto GmbH, though this new company filed for bankruptcy after just one year. The brands are licensed by AgfaPhoto Holding GmbH (a holding company), and after a period being made by Ferrania are now made by Fuji for Lupus Imaging Media. Agfa-Gevaert still produces technical films for Law enforcement and aerial photography purposes, some of which are bulk purchased and sold by Maco Direct under the Rollei Brand, and also by Lomograhy.

Boots Films

Boots is a major UK chemist chain, which has always had a strong photographic presence. They still sell branded film which is made in Japan, so is almost certainly Fujifilm.

Ilford Films

Ilford is a renowned UK manufacturer of (now solely) black and white films, chemicals and papers. The company started in 1879 as the Britania Works Company, manufacturing photographic plates, and took the name of Ilford (where it was located) in 1907. It produced a small run of cameras for a time. Ilford merged with the USA based International Paper to become Ilford Amitec in 1989; this company went into receivership in 2004, and a management buyout of the UK site resulted in Harman Technologies who continued the black and white materials production.  In partnership with CIBA-Geigy the company also made some colour materials, and this Swiss section was also brought out and now produced inkjet materials. Ilford appears to be going strong and has recently released a large formal pinhole camera.

Patterson Photographic is a UK manuafcturer of Photographic and Darkroom equipment and chemicals. They used to sell black and whitre film under their own brand, which is apparently re-branded Foma film; although the did carry an ISO 800 black and white which Foma do not to my knowledge produce.

Snappy Films

‘Snappy’ is a brand being used by one or more Ebay sellers based in Eire selling home rolled C41 ISO 200 film. They claim the film to be German manufactured, which points to it possibly being bulk Agfa film (though Agfa is not in fact German), but there are no markings on the film that give any real clues.
