Rollei IR 400

  1. I recently tried using this film without any filter - exposing the film at a speed rating of 400 ASA. My negs came out rather thinner than I would have expected - though my dev was 'getting on' a bit. Has anyone else experienced this? Can this film be relied on for 400 ASA sensitivity?
     
  2. I'm using it at EI 200 without a filter. The film has really nice dark tones. I'd use a lot more this film but it's a bit pricey for me.
     
  3. Matt, what developer are you using? I was trying RO 9
     
  4. The regular speed of this film is E.I. 200. And with Rodinal/R09 o.s. you're loosing again 1/3F stop. E.I. 160.
    All these Aviphot Agfa Gevaert films have less speed. Retro 400S = Superpan 200 = E.I. 200. Retro 80S = E.I. 50.
