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.

A great film I shot this on a Bronica S2a with a nikkor 200mm lens on a walk round cartmel. I was impressed with the negs as soon as they came out of the wash. They scanned in well and needed very little modification in lightroom. ( the modern alternartive to the dark room)
Brilliant results on this 120mm film, that I wasn't expecting much from but whoa what a nice character to them! This is an excellent stock even for a foggy day handhled shooting, can't wait to shoot more of it in the future in better light conditions. If you want pictures smooth like butter, Superpan200 is definitely worth trying!
I really enjoyed this film. At 200 ISO it gives a bit more latitude than the alternative slow speed 100 films (or 80 in Rollei's case). Results are fine grain but contrasty and with a bit more of an edge than the 80S, or something like FP4 for example.
I'm not one for some of the modern hyper-contrast and designer grain film stocks, but this feels like a nice compromise - achieving good contrast and grain but with a bit of class and not pandering to short lived contemporary whims.
Rollei Superpan 200 is an excellent film if you are looking for bold, strong contrasty results.
The film is sharp and full of detail in 120, and thanks to the clear PET base, it dries really flat.
It really shines when developed in Ilford Perceptol, for fine-grain and sharpness
However, this is my go-to film when I want black & white transparencies (slides), it is in my opinion the best film available in 120 for this process. Looking at the transparencies projected on the light box reveals a lot of detail.
It also has the benefit of having near infrared sensitivity and so can be shot using a dark red or IR72 filter for added effect
