5 Frames with… #12: Rollei Retro 80S (EI 80 / 35mm / Canon FTb) by Rob Davie

These five photographs were shot with 35mm Rollei Retro 80s film using a Canon FTb and Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens. Retro 80s is an unusual film in a couple of ways. Firstly, it has an extended red range into the near infra-red. This changes the results in subtle and sometimes unexpected ways. If you use it with a red filter then you can get the effects that we usually associate with infra-red photography – weird shades of foliage, that sort of thing. If you use it just as you would any other film however, it’s a great slow speed...

  Having read a couple of reviews on EMULSIVE from proud owners of other medium format gear (Daniel J.

Photostory: Bars – Mamiya RB67 at the Yorkshire Museum of Farming

The York Photographic Society have a large membership of active enthusiasts, at least 50 or so. I am the only one that uses film regularly and that’s a little bit sad I think. The members I have met to date have all been fascinated and amazed that I am using a 1970’s/80’s Mamiya RB67 rather than the latest Olympus with focus stacking…. I am guessing that anyone reading this probably fully understand the charm and pleasure of the slow, considered process that film enforces, especially when shooting medium and large format film. Anyway, at one of the last events of...
