    Or any one actual language. Do I gather that it is only made in 35mm? If so, not much use to me. Now a medium format version......

    Actually, that might be a cool effect, like a mosaic.

    I meant that it reads as though someone was trying to speak English using German grammer. My German wife (who does it all the time) calls it Gerglish. It was meant as a joke :smile:

    ROLLEI ATP "Version 1"

    You can get an English language technical data sheet, and you can buy this ROLLEI film in the USA now at FREESTYLE. Why don't you get in touch with them?

    Regards

    OK, just back from the Fotoforum festival in Münster (Germany).
    The two main German specialized photochemical companies Moersch and SPUR had both two new excellent developers for this ATP-V1 film:
    Moersch, UGI 1+11 ; E.I. 25 Ultra fine grain and nice grey scale.
    SPUR: Technospeed 1+14 ; E.I. 40 till E.I. 50 with this new ATP-V1 Rollei film.

    SPUR-Technospeed
    (not yet on their website...)

    Is this their Docuspeed (intended for the Kodak TP, they said to offer again), or something new?

    Is it just the Pan 25?
    I thought that was something different?
    I'd really love to try this stuff, see how it compares to Efke 25, which is currently my low speed of choice.
    I never got to try Techpan.

    It's definitely not PAN25 but a film new to us.

    This is the new Rollei ATP-V1 datasheet:

    http://www.fotohuisrovo.nl/documentatie/Rollei ATP_englisch_mail.pdf

    We tested the ATP-V1 Technical Pan film with SPUR Imagespeed and the Rollei L.C. developer so far.

    Brand new are the two NEW developers for this film from Moersch and SPUR. I think SPUR modified their Dokuspeed developer for TP to achieve more effective speed for this ATP-V1 film. So it's new and it's called: TECHNOSPEED.

    Moersch did the same and made the UGI developer for this interesting film.
    Both developers are not for sale yet. I think they will come on the market next month November.
    I have the protype bottles from both versions for testing and a review.


    Thanks for your attention. :wink:

    Hello,
    My photo reseller here told me this new film is very thin and very curly.
    If you have tested this film, can you comment on this ?
    Thanks,
    Marc

    The only testing possibility in France so far is Stock Photo and Rollei France. They are responsible for this product in their sales area. I am sure both can show you their results and tests so far. The introduction was officially at the Salon de Paris last week.

    How is it listed at Freestyle? Is it the R3 label?

    It's 100 u (micron) the same thickness as Rollei PAN 25, IR 820/400, Digibase CN200 pro and also on a clear PET layer.
    The same non-curling layer as the IR 820/400 , Digibase CN200 pro and from the same (Agfa) Gevaert factory in Belgium.

    Comparing with a more classical tri-acetate film like Rollei Retro 100/400 / APX100/400 which is 135 u (micron) it's slightly all thinner film.

    When drying under a humidity of 50-60% on room temperature (20 degrees C) I found no problem in curling at all.

    Also a scan is then no problem.

    Here is an overview of all Rollei films and their specs:
    http://www.fotohuisrovo.nl/
    Assortment --> filmrolls --> Rollei/Maco

    and then you can see that (Rollei) R3 is a completely different film.
    Rollei ATP-V1 Technical Pan is the official name.
