    I know only a way to reverse a black and white film :

    first dev+bleach+clear+second exposure+second dev+fixi with washing between each steps .

    There is no standard process like in E6 for coloured slides, you have to calibrate your process for each type of film, and many parameters need a serious control (first dev composition ,water quality, temperature, times......) . It's why DR5 is good, they have a stabilized and well controled process .

    So
    Could this be a DR-5 killer?
    (http://www.dr5.com/main.html)
    The rollei DD is a film, DR5 is the process . If you don't have a good process, your film is nothing ;-)

    For infos, Agfa in the 80's had a film named DD12 (dia-direct 12 asa ) , this film was needing the standard process i describe in this post .

    If you have a look on DR5's pages, you will see that the rollei infrared give very fine results in reversal process (but personally i find this film is to expensive )

    well, the kodak & agfa films were direct b&w duplicating films. they were already reversed--the tonal scale was flipped more or less. you gave it more exposure, the lighter it got & vice versa. they were just very slow--made for duping negs either by contact or under an enlarger. the kodak was SO-339, and later on 132. Agfa I think, was P331p, although I never used it, so I'm not sure of it's exact product number....

    In use--it was actually more uniform to use than you describe--it could be processed standardized in a b&w deeptank. I did this using DK50 replenished.

    I actually kind of look forward to hearing about how this Rollei film works, because it could be that it would be an ideal film for making b&w dupe negs on a copystage--rollfilm & all that--especially if it was on a polyester base.

    Not sure how that is possible, but i'll give it a try.

    Marc, did you find the time yet to test this new film?

    Interesting about this colour neg scanning film, looks really nice from the example. Susceptability to grain aliasing is better than films with orange mask? Also any intention to make in 5x4........

    In Europe the Rollei CN400 pro scanfilm will be available in about two weeks (35mm and 120 roll film), about 4X5" we are not informed.

    So far we understand now that the Rollei SD film will be introduced in beginning 2007. Maybe at the same time for the Rollei E-6 color slide film.

    Some new informations

    Thank you very much for your interest for the new RSD film!

    The ROLLEI RSD film (Rollei Slide Direct) was produced first exclusively as a prototype, and was offered in a rather small number at the Photokina, to prospective customers. The official market launch on this film, is planned for April, 2007 (Education Season in the USA). The film sensitivity amounts to ISO 10/20. The development must occur in a POWERFUL negative developer. We have good results made with the ROLLEI RHS, dilution 1+7, approx. 10 minutes, with the ROLLEI RHC, dilution 1+4, approx. 8 minutes (higher max. Dens.) improves. The first name RETRO and 50, is to be led back on a false interpretation of a new employee, and is owed in the haste before the Photokina. RETRO stands with us for TRIACETATE. Because of the RSD, nevertheless, is poured on P.E.T. (Estar), "Retro" should not be used. The number 50 comes from an internal assessment row and might never have reached to the outside, because now the danger exists, that photographers accept the ISO value that would be connceted with the number. This is not unambiguously the case! You can see where people work, mistakes can happen, fortunately, we and our customers, before the official market launch, still have to announce time, sound information. The distribution of the RSD film will also occur about the same traders / importers, how all the other ROLLEI products from the MACO house.

    With kind regards

    In the mean time the Rollei CN400 pro (C41) scanfilm is available in 35mm and 120 roll film.

    Also the Rollei Ortho 25 films are available now. The statement about the RSD is of course correct, official introduction April 2007.

    Best regards,

    Robert
