Rollei Infrared 400 Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film, Boxed)
Key Features
  • IR-Sensitive Panchromatic B&W Neg. Film
  • ISO 400/27° without Filtration
  • 650-750nm Infrared Sensitivity Range
  • Very Wide Exposure Latitude
Rollei 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 within the range of 650-750nm 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 of 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.

How would exposure & auto-metering be affected if ...

How would exposure & auto-metering be affected if used with a 720 nm filter over a flash head?
Asked by: Paolo
Based on the spectral output of a xenon flash and the sensitivity range of this film, you would probably be looking at the exposure being about 2-3 stops below the meter reading. So giving it +2 or 3 stops of exposure compensation would likely be a good starting place.

Is this film useable with a B+W 093 IR filter? ...

Is this film useable with a B+W 093 IR filter? What ISO would I set on my meter?
Asked by: Warren
I have used the filter with an 092 infrared filter which blocks most visible light and allows IR 720 nm to pass through, using Rollei IR400 film. The 093 filter allows IR light 900 nm to pass through. I would guess that it would work with IR400 film and give more of an IR effect. As for exposure, the 092 filter requires 5 or 6 f stops more exposure than with no filter. This is a bit of a guess as the IR isn't measured by light meters. I hope this helps.

Red or infrared filters are necesary ?,or without it?
Asked by: juan gerardo
With the red filter it tends to give better definition and a bit less contrast which tends to be more pleasing to the eye I find. The filters are not necessary but they do help a bit.

What developer might produce the least bromide drag using a steel reel in a steel tank?
Asked by: dan
I would consider using Photographers' Formulary Pyrocat HD Film Developer (Dry) - Makes 10 Liters BH #PHPHDFD10L • MFR #01-5080 for this film. But for your bromide drag issue I would not use the stick agitation but rather inversion agitation to help with this issue so you get the chemistry moving well and it does not sit in one place too long causing the bromide build up in areas.

question

What precautions if any I have to take before loading the IR film in the camera and also before I develop?
Asked by: Manojchandra
Keep the roll tight and make sure it threads. Shoot and develop within two weeks. Play around with different ISO on whole roll.

question

Is there any company that will develop infrared film?
Asked by: Anonymous
Black and white infrared film is developed in the same chemicals as any other black and white film. You should be able to have it developed anywhere that processes true black and white negs.

question

I'm developing this film in my darkroom. Usually I use T-max developer. What are you using to develop this film and any info on time and concentrate?
Asked by: mary s.
Per instructions inside box, I use D-76 developer at 1+1 dilution, 10:50 seconds development time. Great results with this film every time.

question

I am loading the 120 size Rollei 400 infrared in a pinhole camera (6x6 size) but I don't see any frame numbers on the backing paper. Does it have any? If not, can you recommend how often to turn the film to the next frame?
Asked by: Rosemary
Hey there brave soul of infrared endeavours! There are numbers on the film itself, pretty sure not on the backing. You will need to measure turns to get 6 centimeters. I would take strip of paper and measure 6cm on it and see how many turns will give you 6cm and a bit. Other than that, use complete darkness for loading/unloading too. Hope this helps :)
