Interesting announcement indeed. I don't think that I have ever shot on Ortho film. Will consider trying it.
Anyone here experienced with Ortho film and is looking forward to trying it out?
Ortho film were heavily used in printing and graphic arts once panchromatic emulsions replaced them for photographers.

Essentially think of a film that is heavily biased to green wavelengths and blind to the opposite; red. Plants and green subjects will be very light and anything with red in it, such as skin tone, lips, flowers, fruit, will be dark gray to black. Personally any new films are exciting and I'm looking forward to testing it out.

Yeah, I definitely feel that way and am not negative towards it (get it?) but probably won't even try it. I've just noticed in my casual film shooting that I have to have higher ISOs so I have the flexibility of shooting indoors or in lower light. But, maybe if I become more serious I'll give it a go. Certainly cool to learn about.
