Rollei's Retro 80S is a slow-speed panchromatic black and white negative film with extended near-infrared sensitivity to 775nm.

It has a nominal sensitivity 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, that makes it well-suited to scanning applications.

      Comments about Rollei Retro 80S Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film, 5 Pack):

      I have used this film for portraiture, architecture, landscapes & seascapes, and sailing regattas using 6x9 & 6x6 folding cameras. It has a rich tonal range and contrast & sharpness that renders photos that are both warm & crisp. Whether shooting in bright sunlight or subdued, flat light, I've had excellent results with this film. It scans beautifully too. For me it's an ideal B&W film -- and I shoot predominantly film.

      Avoid using filters with this film, as filtration turns the lovely tones as stark as ortho copying film.

      The photo below was shot at box speed in moderately bright sunlight (EV 13 or 14) using a Hasselblad 500CM and 80/2.8 Planar.

      Amazing film.

      By Ruby Falls

      Comments about Rollei Retro 80S Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film, 5 Pack):

      This film is incredible. The grain is so unbelievably fine. But the contrast is what got me. Finally I have a film that renders lovely skin tones and can handle both high and low key lighting without effort. I shot my first roll at ISO 100 and pushed it rather hard in ID-11. And was thrilled with the results. Second roll at 60, same excellent results. In summary, it is well worth the cost.

        Comments about Rollei Retro 80S Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film, 5 Pack):

        I live in Vancouver, Canada and most of the time it is overcast ( fellas living in Pacific NW, especially Seattle and up know what I mean), and this slight contrasty film is great for shooting under this kind of outdoor ambient light. I rate it mostly as ASA 80 but once in a while as 100 and use it to shoot outdoor portrait and nude. The red sensitivity of this film makes the skin tone about 1/3 to 1/2 stop brighter. I don't rate this with 5 stars because, in my opinion, it would be a bit too contrasty to use for outdoor in a sunny day, not versatile enough; however, it is more than great for dull or flat light situations.

          Comments about Rollei Retro 80S Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film, 5 Pack):

          I use this product with a 2.8d Rolleiflex camera, because i'm always shooting outside and I love shooting wide open the low iso is perfect. I developed the film with Rollei developer, and it came out with great contrast and still good details in blacks and whites. I will be stocking up on this film! Really hope they don't discontinue it!

          Great film

          By andy

          from Nashville

          Comments about Rollei Retro 80S Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film, 5 Pack):

          This film is great. Much sharper and more contrasty than say, FP4 (which I love), and so it's a nice change of pace. Slightly glowy, which makes portraits nice.

                I love this film. It's great in Diafine when exposed at EI40. It's also fantastic in Rodinal. Be sure to expose properly. Don't guess with this film, but sure to use your meter and watch your light.
