    Rollei Digibase CR200 Pro slide film

    Hi Gang-
    I was wondering if any have you have ever shot the Rollei color slide film that they currently offer. I bought some from Freestyle and I was able to shoo half the roll tonight and I will finish it on vacation this weekend. I am pretty excited to try a new (to me. how old is is?) slide film. I have no idea what to expect. It's pretty inexpensive too. It is available in 35mm and 120. There is a sample on Freestyle's site. http://www.freestylephoto.biz/812211...ed?cat_id=1301

    It's good to hear your name. Let us know how you find it. I've wanted to try it in both E-6 and C-41 chemistry, namely in 120 format. Cheers.

    Good or bad? I think it is a matter of taste. This film is looking different compared to Kodak and Fuji tranparency films.
    It has very natural colors. Good neutral grey. A little bit less saturated. A bit more grain.
    If you want a different look, it is indeed an alternative.

    Lots of photographers like this film because of its excellent results in cross processing.

    Not to sound too uninformed, but could someone reveal the "Shelf name" of this film. Was it the "Vista", "Precisa", "Optima" I have never used any of it, but would like to try.

    How do we know that this was not the "shelf name"? [Please excuse me. I was not truly into photography while AGFA was still totally active]

    The shelf name was Agfachrome Professional RSX II 200.
    The amateur version of this film was "Precisa".

    Thats interesting, as the last roll of Digibase CR200 I shot didn't say E6 on the roll, it was C41, and therefore I shot and got it developed as such.

    I suppose as its an unmasked film you could "cross" it either way.

    They have the same name but as a C-41 film I believe.
