    Hello,

    this is my first here, but since I had the chance to see the "slides" at the photokina, I thought I give my opinion here.
    I was disappointed with the quality. Take a look at the datasheet; the max. densitiy is only 2.25, which is far too low for projection.
    The slides were presented on a light table and it is clearly visible, that the blacks are dark grey in reality.
    As a consequence, the contrast was too low resulting in dull looking pictures.

    In my opinion this is a film giving direct positives but unusable for projecting.

    Wish it would be better...

    Regards,
    Andreas

    I wouldn't be too hasty to jump to conclusions yet. As I understand the datasheet, you can control the contrast level just by using different developers (RLC, RHS/Rodinal, RHC). My guess is that the slides you saw, were developed with scanning in mind, which results in low contrast images.

    Exactly, we have worked out our first results with Rollei RHS/AM74 but in contrast to the new Rollei CN400 pro (C41) scanfilm there are a lot of variables to control.
    Our result: 1.8 log D with the RHS and suitable for scanning, indeed not for projection with this combination and some questions for the Rollei/Maco company.

    Available data details (in German) are on our web site so far including an example in the gallery what we have done last week in a B-test.

    best regards,

    Robert

    Any results yet?

    Could this be a DR-5 killer?

    Not likely given all the film options DR5 offers with their process including many pan films.

    Hello Robert,

    Maco/Rollei put some strong statements in their data sheet (e.g. [translated from the german datasheet]: perfect for scanning and projecting).

    You have good connections to Rollei / Maco. Do you know, what this statement in the datasheet is based on?

    Regards,
    Andreas

    We have good connections all over in the photo industry.
    However we were surprised as well for this Rollei SD film. So I am afraid I can not answer your question now.

    So there is an Anti-Newton layer in the film, that's rather strange. Is that for the purpose of scanning?
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Thanks, Robert. I'm really looking forward to your conclusions.

    Any idea if the B&W direct positive will be available in sheets?

    Thanks,
    Jo
