Description

This 120 film is a highly-technical emulsion which means it needs bright light but will reward you with very fine detail, strong contrast and high tonal sensitivity - particularly in medium format.

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.

For more information about the brand check out our bio of Rollei

Perfect for: Landscapes, Pinhole/Long-Exposure
Interesting - nice fine grain

There isn't much information about this that I could find, but it's a fun film to shoot and gives wonderfully low grain output. I shot a roll of this through a 6x12 Pinhole and processed in Ilfotec HC - lovely results, but ultimately no better than FP4+ let alone Pan F for Pinhole.

Nothing won't with this film in the slightest - but it's not going to be one is my favourites. Sticking with Ilford for now!

Nice vintage look

I bought this film to use with a 1935 camera shooting 6x9cm negatives designed for the older orthochromatic film (rather than the modern panchromatic film). At iso 25 it is not the fastest and so I either used with a tripod (1/2 second exposure, f/22 hyperfocal) or hand-held on a very sunny day (1/50 second exposure, f/5.6). The shots came out very well and looked quite different to more modern film types. There was good tonal range and fairly low contrast, overall a pleasant vintage feel. After getting the results back from this first roll I bought another three rolls. I plan to shoot at least one roll in a more modern camera.

The low iso is limiting but usable, it is in any case what photographers had to use in the early days and they managed some great photos, so why not give it a try?
