Rollei - Retro 80s
Rollei Retro 80S is a slow-speed panchromatic black-and-white negative film with extended near-infrared sensitivity to 775nm. It can therefore be used as a normal black-and-white film or as an infrared film when using an infrared filter. Retro 80S is based on the original Agfa Aviphot PAN 80 black-and-white emulsion. The additional red sensitivity of the Retro 80S helps to cut through haze or fog and also smooth skin tones and blemishes, making it ideal for portraiture. Due to the low blue-sensitivity of the emulsion, shots taken with a direct flash are less sensitive (based on tests using a direct flash with a color temperature of approx. 6500K). The film has a nominal film speed of ISO 80/20° and is characterized by a fine grain structure and broad tonal range. It is coated onto a transparent polyester base, with anti-static coatings, which makes it well-suited to scanning applications.
Film Format: 120 film.
Film type: Black and White.
If this is an expired film, it is untested and no guarantees are given.
Our expired film can be bought in several options, this depends on the specific film.
Film with “no box” means that we could not save the outer package, due to its age.
Packages may look different than shown because the designs change through the years. Also, some may have a little bit of age to them as well. If you want a new-looking film you should buy a new film and not expired right?
Quick tip on using expired film.
Some film might be stored in a fridge and some might not, so shooting expired film is always a chance of luck.
Because the film is expired you should keep in mind you could adjust the ISO to its “new age”.
You know, have a little bit more sensitivity for it.
This should only be applied to color negative film, slide film is ofter better to shoot on “normal “box speed.
For every TEN YEARS, a roll of film is expired shoot it ONE-STOP LOWER.
So for example you are using a 400 ISO film from 2009.
You should shoot it one-stop lower so that would be?
200! Right on!
And now if it was a pack of expired film from 1999?
100! Again your right!
You could also first meter the scene and then lower your settings so you get one-stop lower.
