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.

Not that excited....

I wasn't that impressed; certainly given the low ISO (and high price) I expected less grain and better tones. Perhaps it didn't like Microphen.

Best film I have used

It´s the first time i have used a low speed ISO film and I was shocked I had good negs. I developed the film with Ilfotec DDX and and gambled a bit with developing times. But I was so happy I could get a print with such beautiful details. I could not be more pleased and I would like to but again for flowers and shoot around the house when the weather is bad.

The pictures are taken with a mobile phone so apologies for the quality, the prints are glorious IMHO.

Beautiful Film

This was the first roll of film I’ve shot in over 15 years - having been a little bored due to my usual shooting being a non-starter due to lockdown, I decided to get myself a little rangefinder (Olympus 35RC) and give film a go. I was instantly impressed when I saw the sheer amount of choice in all the different types of film.
Luckily I had a nice, crisp, bright (but very cold) day to shoot, this was helpful due to the low iso of Blackbird.
I love the sharpness and contrast, it really made the most of the conditions. I will definitely be using it again - if the sun ever reappears!

Amazing light

So I bought a couple just to try some low ISO stuff, and I took the creative message to heart so played around with the lighting. I am really impressed with how the photos have come out, they've preserved the lighting and contrast keeping the mood which I was working with, I was clearing out my Granddads house at the time. With macro shots this is great at capturing the detial. I am now waiting for a good time/shoot to go and use the other one on, it's such a shame they don't do this film in 120 as well. I will have to stock up when I can afford it.
