Description

The optimum creative tool, this large format 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.

Worked for me

As the previous reviewer notes, this is vey thin acetate and needs careful handling, but no more than the 120 format. Worked well for me. Rate at 25iso and use a black filter.

Rollei IR400

Great fun in 35/ medium format but really struggling with the stuff in 4X5. Sheets and way too thin, a pain to load and even worse to get into the tank holder system. Will not be buying again in LF.

Always in my kit bag

I use this film with a 720nm filter and rate it at 6 ISO when metering. As with the 120 roll film version which I’ve used extensively this is a very capable film which can produce some lovely tones. I’ve been developing both my 120 and 5x4 sheet films in Rodinal and find this gives me a look I’m happy with. The 5x4 film sheets are very thin, especially compared to my usual 5x4 stock and so need handling very carefully. That said, I can see me using this on a regular basis moving forward especially once life returns to something approaching normality and I can get out properly again.
