ADOX has announced HR-50, a new monochrome film stock that will be available in 135, 120, and 4x5 formats.

According to ADOX, the HR-50 film stock is "based on an emulsion commonly available for technical purposes." It features "an ultrafine grain" and uses "super panchromatic sensitization," meaning it's sensitive to all wavelengths of visible light.

ADOX says HR-50 is particularly well-suited for street and landscape photography, but also works for portraits, although they do recommend using its own HR-50 developer. In the event you don't want to buy another developer to keep in the darkroom, ADOX says the "gamma [of HR-50 has been] reduced so it becomes perfectly usable for pictorial photography in regular developers."

According to the press release, ADOX HR-50 also works as an infrared film and handles the use of filters "extremely well."

Below are a few sample photos provided by ADOX.
