Description

The optimum creative tool, this 35mm film can be shot in two different ways. First - as a straight black and white film ISO 400, with a slight ghostly result due to the infrared sensitivity. Alternatively you pair it with a deep red filter to disproportionately focus on the IR spectrum!

Trees will be bright white, people will glow, the sky will be dark black, and you will be rewarded with some of the most dramatic images straight out of the camera. Note that this will increase the necessary exposure significantly (it will respond at sensitivity of ~ISO 12-25)

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.

Rollei IR 400 - Just get it

First time shooting infrared sauna f any ki d, did a little reading for working out exposure times and then waited for the sun. Gave up waiting, typical British summer, went with what I had. Intermittent access and in town not countryside. Sun out ir filter on, sun in or filter off. The infrared shots better than expected considering cloud cover, the straight black and white are fantastic. Love the contrast and very fine grain and see this being a film I may use a lot.
Even if you're not into infrared I suggest getting this for black and white.

Dramatic effects - limited use.

Other worldly effects are possible with this film, but the conditions of course have to be right. I knew nothing about infrared shooting, but I'd seen what can be achievable with it - black skies and white, washed-out foliage. So I purchased an old copy of Laurie White's Infrared Photography Handbook - which gives you all the background information. But just reading some of the reviews here in Analogue Wonderland gave me enough to know roughly what to do with my Canon A1 and the 72nm Hoya filter I'd bought. Bracketing each shot was essential, and on my first film I overdid that with six frames of each shot - from 1/30 of a second down to 1 second, all at E22. I was surprised when I got the prints back that some had turned out better than I thought. Second film I didn't bother to take as many frames for each shot, and it showed - it was baffling why some worked and some didn't. Again, it's very much down to conditions, and what angle the sun is coming from - or so it seems. Took more care with the third film, and some better results. But these films were showing up an issue with my camera - light leakage. Not on every shot, strangely, but some.; a band of light down the middle of the print. So my A1 has gone off for a service and new seals. I'm going back to colour slide film for a while because I found that I couldn't use these films as much as I wanted to, simply because the weather here in the UK is seldom appropriate. Clear blue skies and bright sunlight is what I was always hanging around for. So when it came I had to move quickly. That's the limitation I found with infrared. But if you live in California or the Mediterranean, no problem. I do with two cameras - one loaded with infrared and the other with something I could use at any time. Will use Rollei again sometime.

I shot this film in a Olympus OM10, with a Cokin 89b filter, metered at ISO400 and allowed the camera to choose the shutter speed, by doing this I was losing around 4-5 stops of light.

The day I shot this was a bright sunny day which you really need for infrared, the area I was shooting did have a lot of tree cover and this did affect the way some of the images turned out.

When shot in bright light you get the classic infrared look with the glowing white leaves but under cover the effect isn't as pronounced, although you will still see some infrared.

This film can also be shot as a normal B&W film, so you can have the versatility of shooting infrared or straight B&W on the same roll. I found the straight B&W to look good with good looking tones across the image (Take a look at Eric the Punk image).

The price point on this film is also pretty good compared to other ISO400 films.

The film was developed in Rodinal for 10 minutes, the combination of this and ISO 400 does give some grain but nothing that I find unacceptable.

Amazing film

How do you describe a film like this?
Mental! Love it! Fun! Complex!

This is my second attempt with this film but love it. Some amazing and strange results. I think the strangest thing is in the portrait I did of my friend he had dark tints on his glasses and you can see right through. I was working with a Hoya R72 filter and you have no way to see focusing so I was taking the filter on and off. I developed the film in rodinal 1-25 for 7.5mins. (25ISO metering)

I will be ordering some more!

a fun learning curve

I had a roll of 35mm in my fridge for well over a year. Kept meaning to get an IR filter to try it but never got around to it but decided this week to get out there and give it a go.
I purchased a Zomei ir720 filter and tried it out on my Canon 5DmkIV. It gave interesting results but really long exposures so I matched these settings on my EOS 5...don't do that! You'll just get over-exposed shots. Luckily I only shot half a roll like this i then cut it off to develop and realised my mistake.
Had a good trip around Youtube for some tips and came away with a good base is f/16 and 1/8th sec. If you have a light meter set it to about ISO 3 to 6 and meter as normal. This solved things and gave me some much better results. I now have 2 rolls of 120 infrared so can't wait for a sunny day and get out there again with the RB67
Photos are on a cloudy day.
