    In my experience the Rollei films (and Efke Films) all curl very badly no matter what weight you put on them when they dry or what the humidty level is. Once dry I cut them and place them into negative sleeves and then place the sleve into a thick book at the bottom of a stack of books. After a few days they are much flatter

    I haven't used them, to be honest, since here in the US the cost is much higher than films from Kodak, Ilford, and Fuji and I get the quality and tonality I like from them. I especially like TMX and PanF+ and have no trouble at all with either of them. As far as getting medium format quality from 35 mm, I have to disagree though. I have a Hasselblad 503 c/x and a Mamiya C220. Using the same type of film, the medium format stuff blows the 35 mm stuff away every time. And yes, I'm using Nikkor primes, good ones, for the 35 mm work.

    Hi Frank,

    of course, if you use the same type of film in 35 mm and in 120, 120 wins concerning detail and tonality.
    That will be the case if you use the Rollei ATP in 35 mm and in 120, too.

    But if you use Rollei ATP in 35mm with the dedicated ATP DC developer, you get so good resolution and sharpness, and so fine grain that the picture quality is comparable to 120 format using "normal" films like Pan F for example.
    I have made these intensive comparisons. This film is really worth a try. I prefer ATP to Kodaks Technical Pan.

    Best regards,
    Henning
