Rollei Pan 25

Discussion in 'Black and White' started by jon_martin|2, Jan 27, 2006.

  1. I ordered some Rollei Pan 25 recently. I haven't used it before, and
    was hoping for suggestions in developing. I use HC-110 and Rodinal
    usually, so suggestions using these developers would be greatly
    appreciated. So, what do you guys think of this film? Alternatives
    you prefer (for slow speed film)?


  2. Whoa horsey!

    What is Rollei Pan 25?

    Where did you find this film?
  3. Rollei Pan pdf
    Haven't tried it yet... still have TechPan in the freezer. Very curious though.
  4. Yeah,

    You can order it through B&H (special order). I ordered a couple of rolls (120). I haven't seen much discussion on I was hoping for a head start on developing. I've heard people suggest it's like Efke (sp?) or Maco 25. Do you guys have regiments for developing these films using HC-110 or Rodinal?

  5. Last issue of UK magazine Black & White Photography did a test of some of the Rollei films,
    although I think they tried the Ortho 25, not the Pan. Will have a look if I still have it.<p>
    For pictorial use, it behaves much like TechPan as it is primarily a document film. To get
    sufficiently low contrasts with a conventional developer such as HC110 or Rodinal you need
    some very high dilutions. Like I said, I haven't tried the Rollei (which I believe is made for
    them by Maco, or Foma or someone Eastern Euro), but have done TP in Rodinal 1:100 and
  6. The Rollei Pan25 is a new ultra fine grain emulsion.
    So far I have tested the film with the AM74 developer from Amaloco, the manufacturer of the Rollei H.S.
    But D76/ID11 will also do also fine with this film. Rodinal will be the next test.

    Here an example of the Rollei Pan25 film, made during my last visit in Prague. (Leica M7-Summicron 2,0/50mm on f=2,0 t=1/8S.)

    Best regards,


    All our Rollei info is on the Dutch web site: *Assortiment* --> *Rollei/Maco*
    All Rollei films are tested in the Dutch magazine "Fotografie" F+D (Photo&Darkroom) December 2005!
  7. I've just processed a rolleipan25. It's a very wonderful film, very close of APX25. But it's not a copy or relabelled MacoUP25. It's clearly a new film.
  8. Thanks Aurelien, for your interest in the new Rollei films.
    Again a picture but now from the Old Time Square in Prague, the well known astronomical clock. (Also on a Rollei film)

    Next month (February) our Fotohuis will have a special price for all Rollei films and our Rollei test kits (chemicals included). *Nieuws/News* on our NL-website.

  9. Has anybody tried Rollei Pan 25 in Technidol?

    Robert: Can you give me a link to your site that bypasses the Flash intro? The generic link you give: is running afoul of my IE6 security settings.

    John: How much was the Rollei Pan 25 at B&H?
  10. Yes, within a month we are going into a real web shop, like B&H. Without flash, for Mac users and in three currency: Eur, US$ and GBP.

    For the time being for you....


  11. B&H sells rolls for $5.49 a piece. It's pretty high, but I was buying a lot of other film at the time and thought what the hey (shopping hungry, or so to speak). The hitch is that B&H orders when you order; I don't think they keep a regular stock of the stuff.

  12. I'm processing Rollei Pan 25 in Rodinal 1+25, 8 min. @ 20C. Perfect. Just remember to increase/decrease develop times according to temperature chart.
