Rollei - Retro 400S
Rollei Retro 400S is a high-speed panchromatic black-and-white negative film featuring an extended infrared sensitivity up to 730nm for producing unique halation effects, which can be controlled by exposure. Retro 400S can therefore be used as a normal black-and-white film or as an infrared film when using an infrared filter. Retro 400S is based on the original Agfa Aviphot PAN 400S PE1 black-and-white emulsion.
The nominal speed of ISO 400/27° makes the 400S suitable for use in daylight and artificial light, without any restrictions. Its high film speed offers extensive versatility and latitude, which is further complemented by high sharpness, contrast, and acutance. When exposed at box speed, Retro 400S delivers in general high-contrast images with a high level of sharpness and a very fine grain structure.
The film's polyester base has been tested to a LE-500 (life expectancy 500 years) archival rating and, additionally, this clear base is particularly 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.
