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 have been using Rollei's films for an infrared project that I am working on and have been blown away by the results I have been getting. I ordered some rolls of Super Pan to test and try as I have previously only used Rollei's 400S and dedicated IR film. Unfortunately for my application, I find Super Pan not up to the same standard as the previously mentioned film stocks. It still works well and is a good entry point into IR photography because of the price.
I feel this is to do with either the film base being different to 400S or the fact that I am just used to having a completely clear base now. It might even be a mix of the two.
When not doing IR I find the film to be pretty good. It is a high contrast film and is quite sharp, I like a grainy film but in Super Pan's case, I feel a bit off about it. It's a bit chunky and yet at the same time kinda speckled. It's a weird one, I'll shoot a few more rolls and see how I feel.
This is the second time I have used this film This time on a second Bronica S2a bought as needing repair . It needed two small screws. Exposed as per normal ISO 200 asa . F 8 at either 1/125 or 1/250. This time developed with Kodak HC110 dilution B 1:32 for 8.5 min. Slightly longer tan the 8 min recommended. Stop was an indicator stop bath and Fixed with Ilford fixer. Love the quality and detail that I obtained with this film. It is definitely a film I would use again in 120 and 35mm formats.
I was really surprised by how much you can get out of this film in different situations. From "soft" feeling dreamy images with natural light to really contrasty images using B&W filters. This flim really delivered and the sharpness and details is great.
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!
