Oriental Photo Industrial films

Oriental Photo Industrial was founded in 1919 offering the first line of photographic photosensitive materials made in Japan. The company first started producing plates in 1928, moving to 120 roll film in 1934 and their first color negative film in 1953. International exports began in 1921, and their products gained a large international following. Of note, Ansel Adams is said to have sworn himself to use only Oriental paper.

Oriental still product photographic papers today – New Seagull and Hyper Seagull and in 2016 announced their return to film products in the form of Oriental New Seagull 100 and 400 in 35mm format, exclusively for the Japanese Market.

ORWO films

Founded in Wolfen, Germany, ORWO started off as the Agfa Wolfen plant (where the first mode colour film using incorporated dye couplers was developed) in 1936. The name is derived from “ORiginal WOlfen”.

At the end of  World War II, the Wolfen plant was taken over by US forces and eventually fell behind the Iron Curtain and much of the plant was dismantled and moved to the Soviet Union, where it formed the basis for the Soviet color film industry.

The company was eventually liquidated following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990 and revived in 1998 by FilmoTec GmbH. The company continues to produce film stocks today, specialising in products for the motion picture industry.

Revolog 460nm

Revolog 460nm is an ISO 200/24° color negative film specially treated to produce a colour-change effect on exposed negatives. Depending on exposure, development and scanning settings, the final photograph will appear blue/violet or yellow/green. Underexposure intensifies the colour, whereas overexposure dampens the effect of the film.

The film is available in 36 exposure 35mm format DX-coded cassettes.

Revolog Texture

Revolog Texture shows a repeating bubble-like structure across the entire negative. Because the effect is very prominent in the darker sections of each image it’s important to use proper exposure settings when shooting so that details in underexposed frames may be lost.

Texture is great when shooting contrasting forms or architecture, as the effect will almost be invisible in brighter parts of the image while coming through very strongly in darker parts of the picture.

Try using it in a photo studio for example with light backdrops or a dark background and bright clothing.

The film is available in 36 exposure 35mm format DX-coded cassettes.

Rollei films

Rollei films are produced under licence for Macodirect by Agfa and cover a range of very slow technical products (ATO), traditional low, medium and high-speed black and white films, as well as specialist infrared and near-infrared films and colour negative/slide film.

 

Rollei ATO 2.1

Rollei ATO 2.1 is an extremely high-resolution panchromatic black and white film. It has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 32/16°. It’s maximum resolving power of 300 line pairs/mm at a contrast of 1.6:1 (or 900 line pairs/mm at 1000:1) is extremely high.

The film is coated on a polyester base with high tear resistance. Is suitable for LE 500 archiving (life expectancy 500 years, as tested by the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, USA).

Rollei CN 200

The Rollei CN 200 is a medium-speed unmasked color negative film with a nominal sensitivity of ISO 200/24°. The unmasked nature of the film (no orange layer) creates a unique look: warm, grainy, a little desaturated and is similar in look to older slide films such as Anscochrome 500 and Ferrania 1000D. Maco also suggest that the film is ideal for cross processing in E6 chemistry.

Rollei RPX 25

Rollei RPX 25 is a low-speed panchromatic black and white film with a nominal sensitivity of ISO 25/15°. The film features very fine grain for a “normal” black and white film (RMS 8) and very high resolution and contrast: 260 line pairs/mm at 1000:1 contrast.

The emulsion is coated onto a transparent polyester base making it ideal for black and white reversal processing.

Rollei Superpan 200

Rollei Superpan 200 is a medium-speed black and white negative film with a nominal sensitivity of ISO 200/24°. The film is ideal for push processing and like Rollei Retro films, is based on the Agfa Aviphot family of emulsions. This means the film features excellent tonal reproduction, an extended red sensitivity and responds well to push processing.

The film is ideal for black and white reversal processing and features a resolution of up to 180 line pairs/mm.

Signing out for part five

Nearly done, I promise. There are two more parts left to go before we finally round out this series which started back at the beginning of April. Part six is going to be a final list covering Shanghai to Yodica films, with part seven acting as a complete list of all the films covered on a single page.

See you in part six!
