    Anybody tied Rollei film?

    Saw their film on their website. Anybody have a crack at shooting some of it? What kind of results? Can you process the film in any other chemicals or just the Rollei chemicals?

    Rollie film

    Made by MANCO, x-ray film makers.

    Extended red gives "translucent" flesh. Not attractive.

    Very process sensitive, difficult to control contrast.

    Mylar/PET support is troublesome in cameras. Curly, can damage transport. Difficult to cut but once a tear starts it runs rapidly.

    Large reciprocity factors. Old technology may not be better. They made it that way because they didn't know how to make it better.
