    New Rollei B+W slide film

    Hi all,

    Today I got a sample (not tested yet) of a new Rollei film: "SLIDE-DIRECT 50"
    Strange thing of this film is that it is supposed to give a direct positive when developed in ID-11.
    Not sure how that is possible, but i'll give it a try.

    Regards, Marc The Leest

    If you could see the look on my face right now...it's something like this: :o mixed with this: and if you'd throw in a healthy dose of as well you'd have it.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    I'm guessing that this means that it's a film that will develop to a positive in any normal B&W developer. TEST TEST TEST!!! Show the results when you're done. If it works, it could be a very interesting film indeed.

    I think Kodak used to make a copy film that was pre-exposed to the point where any more exposure would produce a positive by means of solarization. My guess is that it's something like that with this new film.

    The Rollei Slide Direct is an orthochromatic micro based film. You can make B&W slides with the standard RHS developer.
    E.I. 25-maybe 50.
    At this time (next month) only available in 135-24 film. Rest will follow in beginning 2007.

    Also new is a Rollei CN400 pro C41 film, especially made for scanning, so without the orange mask.
    Available in 135-36 and 120 roll film next month.

    Also to be expected a new Rollei CR200 pro E-6 slide film. Also beginning 2007.

    best regards,

    Orthochromatic... That makes it somewhat less interesting for every day use. One could also use ortho neg. film for making slides from negatives in the darkroom. Well, this is less work and will give a different effect (black reds). Is't worth a try!

    CN400 C41, will that be a real colour negative film or B&W using C41?

    Good to see there's still new interesting products being introduced.

    It is a real color negative film but can be also used for a B&W conversion due to the fact ICE (scanning) will work perfectly.
    Clear PET layer and non-curling layer for real flatness.

    The first results of the Rollei CN400 pro scanfilm:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/fotohuisrovo/255112891/

    +Very easy to scan
    +Transparant layer
    +Super flat and easy to load
    +Needs hardly any color correction
    +Standard C41 development
    -Take care of the light pipe effect when loading/unloading

    best regards,

    Robert
