After my initial experience with Rollei Retro 400s, I was cautiously already in love with this film. Is it as versatile as the film I’ve been shooting lately, Kodak Tri-X? No, but like Acros, there’s a very unique beauty and mood to the look of this film. I decided to shoot a few more rolls in different conditions to see if it would consistently perform well. I’ll share my thoughts about the film after shooting more of it, and talk about a few other things.
