Rollei Infrared 400 overview

  • 1Description

Rollei/Agfa's Infrared 400 is a unique infrared-sensitized panchromatic black and white negative film with a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° without filtration. It is sensitive to IR wavelengths up to 820nm and can be used to produce unique halation effects with filtration and by varying the exposure length. It is suitable for working in both daylight and tungsten conditions and is characterized by a fine grain structure, notable sharpness, and high resolving power. Additionally, a good contrast profile offers clear separation between shadow and highlight regions. The film's polyester base has been tested to an LE-500 (life expectancy 500 years) archival rating and also features anti-curling and anti-static coatings, as well as a special coating to promote smooth film transportation within the camera. Additionally, this clear base is particularly well-suited to scanning applications.

This item is one boxed roll of 120 format roll film.

Rollei Infrared 400 reviews

Infrared 400 Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film, Boxed) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the only BW film I'll ever need for a long time. Disclaimer: I don't shoot infrared. I heard this film was more sensitive so wanted to test it in normal conditions. Just look at my pictures. The only grain I've removed is the dust from scanning. In strong sunlight and in shaded areas, doesn't matter, I've shot all over with this film after finding it for a bargain on eBay. All 5 rolls have been so solid I was surprised. I had no idea what to expect from a Rollei film, and despite the company's reputation wanted to wait and see what happened. Not only do you get a very nice grain for the film speed, the contrast is in that sweet spot range. In strong sunlight and depending on the angle, you will notice darkened irises and paler, marble-like skin on human subjects -- more than you might expect. This film is more sensitive to infrared than Ilford's infrared films, and it shows. Quit reading these reviews and buy a roll, even if or especially if you only shoot black and white. Make sure your natural lighting is good and you will get very unique results.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Uneven quality control diminishes performance The Rollei IR black and white is the only one left on the market, so we are stuck with it's shortcomings. I continue to work with it despite experiencing several rolls that had pitted emulsion, which leaves a pattern of tiny black holes in the image. However, I can get a nice, subtle IR effect out of the film. It's far less surreal than the old Kodak IR and most IR modified digital cameras. I use the 120 roll film. I really miss the old Konica IR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite B&W film I love the versatility of this film. It has a very wide exposure latitude, and incredible detail in shadows. I rate this film at ISO 20 with an IR720 filter, ISO 100 with an R25. The IR720 filter gives dramatic contrast range under partially cloudy conditions. With an R25, I prefer it to HP5 Plus, but the tonal range is less dramatic. I process in HC-110 solution B for 6 minutes at 68 degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miss the old Kodak IR film, but this is much easier to use. This film doesn't require total darkness to load or unload, and I don't find the IR effects as dramatic as the old high speed Kodak IR from the 80's and 90's when using the 25a red filter. For this film I have used a Kenko R64 filter, which I imagine filters at 640 nm. I just used a 25a red filter on this film, but I am expecting that film back this week. I uploaded a picture of runners in Gettysburg, PA and west Cleveland near the Cuyahoga river.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping Infrared alive I have only used this product for pinhole photography, but I am really enjoying the results so far. A Infrared capable filter seems a must and I have used IR72.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A (Failed) First Try Shot two rolls of this in 120 format. Accidentally cross-processed the first roll in F-76 and everything turned out unusably dark. Second roll turned out great, but there was little to none of the infrared effect. Maybe I needed a darker red filter? But compared to the Delta 3200 I was shooting back to back with this there's less dynamic range, the tones are much harsher, it doesn't scan very well, and the negatives have a strange, brittle feeling to them. I'll continue trying but so far, not impressed.
