    Comments about Rollei Retro 400S Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film, 5 Pack):

    As mentioned, there is a lot of detail in the blacks. My only suggestion would be to use in a lower contrast situation such as fog or overcast day. It can be quite contrasty...almost like infrared film and when used in bright sun, it is intense. I develop my own and tried Ilfosol 3 to develop at 1:14 instead of 1:9. I didn't agitate as much as usual either but still found this to have a lot more contrast than my go to Tri-X. With that said, the contrast when shot it fog is an advantage I got some gorgeous images in Carmel. The tones are incredible and I think that once I figure out the nuances, I'm going to really love this film.

      Comments about Rollei Retro 400S Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film, 5 Pack):

      The Rollei 400s gives you nice blacks without dumping detail, and isn't too particular about getting the exposure just right. It's rare I come across an unusable negative. That's in contrast to Rollei 80s, which I've found lacks detail in shadows to the degree that it's unusable. The 400s yields a much more linear response, but not without being uninteresting. It's got usable style.
