    Rollei Blackbird film

    Saw this on the freestyle site but they are not very forthcoming with film data. Doesx anyone know where I can get some data on this film? And has anyone tried it want to share their impressions?

    Film photography? This term kills me. As if there's another kind!

    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.

    What's a fair price, then? EFKE KB25 and KB50 and Ilford PanF+ are selling for $5.49 at BH.
