In my November 29, 2013 blog post I offered my initial comments on this film stock after shooting my very first roll. The results were beautiful then and a year later I am still really pleased with this film.
The shot above was taken of an abandoned structure overgrown by weeds beside a small pond. Its an interesting structure and I can’t figure out what it was but the light was golden and the reflections in the pond offered an intriguing image that begged to be captured on this warm and colorful film. This one was shot with the Pentax ZX-L but I didn't record and don’t recall the settings.
In my comments last year I compared this film to Fuji Velvia and I still believe there are similarities between the two. The Rollei is faster by a stop and the clear base seems to have been designed for scanning. Both films offer a warm and brilliant color palette that is pure magic for shots taken during the “Golden Hours” and beautiful anytime.
