    www.rollei.com have neither too much information. If you follow the links you reach :http://www.macodirect.de/analog-colo...3f43c9b61a1865

    There are blackbird , nightbird , redbird , crossbird films at the list.

    For blackbird below information listed :
    Negativ Film black & white

    ISO 25/15° / ISO 100/21°



    process 100/21° D76 20° stock 10 min
    process 25/25° D76 20° stock 6 min
    process 100/21° RHS 20° 1+7 10 min
    process

    25/25

    RHS 20° 1+7 6 min

    Important handling notes for films with a synthetic film base:
    The emulsion is coated onto a transparent synthetic base providing excellent long-term and dimensional stability.
    This films has to be loaded in the camera and unloaded in subdued light. Before and after exposition always store the films in the black light-tight film-container. Not following these advices can cause light infiltration through the base material to the exposed pictures. Rollfilms: Please take care in handling the 120 size films in keeping the film-roll tight with two fingers after breaking the unexposed adhesive label to avoid that the film is rolling to "spring off". The same procedure should be followed after taking the roll film out of the camera. The exposed film should be kept compellingly again in the black light-tight rollfilm-container.

    From Rollei’s Creative Edition comes the Blackbird 100asa Black and White film. A new stock of great contrast, deep midtones and rich blacks. 36 exposures, process with Black and White chemicals

    An picture from the film :

    What good is ISO and other data?.. Those hipsters are just going to shoot it in a plastic piece of crap without exposure controls anyway. Then, they'll send it to some crappy online lab and get 1200X1200 scans of 6X6.

    If they shoot it, they may help keep it alive. Besides it ain't like they can walk into a store and buy a cheap film camera, other than plastic.

    It's probably remaining stock or reject of old Agfa Ortho 25, a reproduction film.

    Selling this for 5 bucks per roll as a whatever-bird-special-effect hipster film is a ripoff for sure. Use ANY low-speed film and push it and you get the same contrast. Put a blue or green filter on the lens and you get an "ortho" look.
