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.

Great film if carefully used!

One of a number of films derived from Agfa aerial reconnaisance films, this is very sharp, fine grained and has good tones. Metering needs to be spot on, though.....
The pictures were developed in Perceptol, which suits it very well.

Flexible sub 100 ISO stock

Great in high contrast situations, producing strong blacks with little noticeable grain. Extended red sensitivity for IR work, though probably not as flexible as superpan in this respect. Will definitely buy again.

I enjoyed using it, but........

I decided to give this a try after seeing results some friends had with it. They reckon it is at it's best when shooting portraits or street photography and i am inclined to agree with them. But.....
I develop my own B&W film these days and I had a nightmare getting this film to load on a spiral. It didn't want to know on a Paterson spiral and I even had a hard time loading it onto a steel spiral. maybe it was just me or maybe it was the hot weather I don't know. Would I use it again? Probably, but I would send it to a lab for developing.

Surprisingly good

I bought a roll of this to try out but didn't hold out much hope for it, I'm happy to say it exceeded all expectations! Smooth grain, sharp, nice tones and quite a thin neg that scans very nicely, I have since bought more of this before it sells out!

Amazing high detail film

This is easily my favourite B&W film for detail in all sorts of situations. It gives super sharp results - as with another reviewer, it's practically medium format level when printing - and the high red / low blue sensitivity darkens skies in an attractive way for landscapes. Cloud shots look fantastic. Also, unlike some others such as Acros and T-Max 100 IMO, it's a "human" film, with skin tones looking right and people not looking like mannequins.

The obvious barrier to using it everywhere is the low speed, though it's workable for street photography with a fast lens. It isn't ideal for telephoto shots except in bright conditions. Also, shadows can be very deep, though I've found I can generally get the detail I need out of them.
