Yes, I see some advantages in such a film
No, I don't see any advantages at all
In the mean time the new Rollei film is there:
Rollei SUPERPAN 200 S80
135-72 (approx. 330cm lenght) and bulk-film with approx. 51 Meter (20") lenght.
It's in fact a thinner layer version from the new Rollei Pan 200 prof. which is going to be introduced on the Photokina 2008 in Cologne in 35mm, 120 roll film and sheet film.
This film will replace the Rollei Retro 100/400 (READ Agfa APX 100/400 (new) ) films which worldwide stock is going to be depleted during this year (2008).
Here a first impression and test (in Moersch FINOL-staining developer) of the new Rollei SUPER Pan 200 prof. film:
Enjoy the new material!
Best regards and have a nice week end!
The tests look interesting, but how does one process a 72 exp. roll of film? I have a Lomo tank for movie film, but that's a lot of chemistry for 72 exp., and most people don't have these or the old Ilford 72 exp. reels. Is Rollei coming out with a reel and tank for this purpose?
Indeed: Movietank, Ilford (72) reels or make a marker around 40 exposures (sticker-on the film surface, via the lens opening) so that you can find the marker back and cut the film for an e.g. 2x 135-40 1520 Jobo tank reel development.
For commercial development it will not be any problem in a standard roller machine.
72 exp film

I still have nine cans of 68m lengths of thin based Agfa 400 ASA (now past its exp date), it is most convenient in that you load the bulk loader with more. But you can still load the cassette with 36, and load normal reels. I'd buy some more of the longer bulk cans if they were available.
Now 220 would allow me to use more film in my Roll film cameras, and I could still process it, so the marketing people seem to me trying to sell ice cream to Eskimos? I spend ages loading 120 film in a shoot, a blad and 10 backs in only 120 exp.
Longer bulk loads and 220 I'll buy, 72 exp cassettes I'd not buy.
