Film Index

The Darkroom’s comprehensive index of photography film

For over 40 years, we have developed literally millions of rolls of film and we still love it!  We love cameras of all types, as well as the trippy, new films. This is our effort to index all the main types of photo film, characteristics, and examples. Share your film experience by adding a rating and review the films you’ve used.

Film Latitude: Tolerance for under- or over-exposure without excessive loss of quality (loss of shadow or highlight detail, oversize grain, loss of sharpness).

Grain: Random optical texture of  film due to the presence of small particles of a metallic silver.   It is an optical effect, the amount of grain depends on both the film stock, how good the exposure is, and the definition at which it is observed.
