As a company Rollei is most famous for it's cameras - particularly the iconic twin-lens Rolleiflex - but this German-based company founded in 1920 has also had a long history of making B&W films. Unfortunately the parent company didn't survive the digital revolution of the 90s/00s but the brand survives today under licence to AgfaPhoto - who continue to support emulsions old and new.

First time using Ortho film

First impressions you get great detail in bright light, in low light you loose detail in the shadows. My images seem grainy considering its 25 ISO this film was developed by AW in Kodak XTOL 1+1. for 11 mins @24 C

Slow Down!

I was curious to use an Ortho film after watching The Lighthouse (2019) and seeing the brutally beautiful shots in that, having read that it was shot using orthochromatic film.
I'm relatively new to shooting film, and this was the slowest ISO I had yet used. I loved it because it forced me to slow down and think if a shot would work, knowing that the film might be quite unforgiving when using the built-in panchromatic metre in my camera.
I was delighted with the results. The detail is better than any other B&W film I have ever used, and the way it picks up peoples faces when taking candids outside on sunny days are brilliant! I'll definitely be getting another ortho to try soon

Needs speed

It was quite experimental for me to test 25 iso film, with film speed This low I regretted to carry a 42-75mm zoom lens for the half of the shots...on a not very bright sunny day. Even though it required more shutter speed to get a sharper image, lower speeds turned out to be more experimental with less contrast than I expected since I have pushed 1 stop while developing

my new favourite B&W film!

Wow, never shot ortho before and I'm knocked out by this. I can see this being a marmite film but for me, ideal. The detail in shadow areas is just superb, to the point where I will probably shoot my next roll 1/2 stop under as it seems to have a tendency to blow highlights quite easily. You will want to carry an orange filter with you if you have much sky in the shot as it is predominately blue sensitive which I should have noticed from the tech spec anyway, low red sensitivity, very low!
Sharpness and grain go without saying at 25ASA, thus you will be forced to use a tripod, so no downside :-)
This film has exactly the look I have been hoping for, I've been using Pan-f up until now and having my commercial shots printed up at least one grade harder, now that won't be needed.
A little more experimentation required but this is a film I will be buying more of.

Strong Film

This film works brilliantly for landscapes. Being ISO 25 a very steady hand or a tripod is needed. Pictures have excellent shadow detail, grain and sharpness is excellent. One downside is the film is very curly so can be tricky to scan.
