    As we all know Maco is not a film manufacturer but a marketing company that relabels mainly Agfa films
    Well this film you will not find in any regular production because it's an own receipture of the Maco company.

    Agfa will do a special production, Efke is involved for sheet and the roll film. Photostar will do the 35mm confectioning and due to the high investments more companies are involved in this project.

    Rollei Retro 100 Tonal will be PO100C compatible. I made some measurements of the pre-production series and the film is in all specs.

    Daylight iso 100-200
    Tungsten light iso 50-100
    260lp/mm in 1:1000 contrast
    380nm-610-625nm
    Polyester 100um
    Polyester 175um (sheet film)

    35mm, bulk 30,5m, 120 roll film, sheet film 4x5" and 8x10"

    Reference developer: RHS/AM74
    1+7 5 minutes, E.I. 100
    1+9 6 minutes, E.I. 100

    Official introduction: Photokina 2010. In November all formats will be available.

    If the film is available in months and you get the films next week, how is your connection with the supplier?
    The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands smell like fixing bath.

If I want an even finer grain and sharpness well beyond an old APX 100 I use a Tmax 100 (panchromatic) and an Acros (somewhat ortho), both of them outclass all APX-style films - old or new, faked or not.
    It's a matter of taste, isn't it? And sharpness and grain aren't everything. I, for one, love the APX 100 for its tonality. For the same reason I'm also playing with Efke/Adox 25 even though it is not excelling in the sharpness/grain department either... compared to other low-iso films, that is...

    Well a raw scan (6x7cm) from Rollei Retro 100 Tonal. Souped in AM74/RHS 1+9 6:00 minutes.
    Subject: River Labe/Elbe.

    Compared to the Rollei Retro 100 (APX 100) less grain and also a large tonality.

    The Polyester 100 micron base is pretty flat but keep the backing paper tight on the roll because the base is clear and you do not want to fog the last negative.
