Rollei Infrared Film 35mm Infrared ISO 400
Our Price: £6.00 GBP100171
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.

I rated this at ISO 400 and developed it in Perceptol. Perhaps that was the wrong choice but the result was extremely grainy and I won't use this again until I'm sure I can get a better result with another developer. In the meantime I'll stick with Ilford SFX 200.
My choice for our photo club project was to use IR film. I also tried Ilford SFX but by far the best results are with Rollei 400. I shot three films using a 720 nm IR filter. Best results were at +5 stops from camera metered exposure (without the filter). Best results are sunshine on foliage with some clouds for contrast. Lovely dark skies and bright foliage and buildings etc within the frame are shades of grey the sort of colour you would expect from a standard panchromatic BW film. One of our club will be trying it next summer and I’ll certainly shoot some more from time to time. A good price too.
Purchased this film to experiment with IR. I took two photos of each scene one with and one without an R72 IR filter. This film replicates the IR look very well for a cheap IR film. Would highly recommend this film for those beginning to experiment in IR photography.
