Rollei CR200 Digibase

Rollei CR200 Digibase

I'm a huge slide film fan, and while I think provia 100f is the best slide film, I decided to give Rollei CR200 Digibase a try. I have used this film in 35mm format, but the grain was huge. 

I ordered 5 rolls from Camera Film Photo, a Hong Kong based store. I'd highly suggest using them. This 5 roll kit came with a Japan Camera Hunter case, which was a nice bonus. 

The film is yellow balanced to say the least. I pulled a lot of the yellow out of these photos and they are still pretty yellow. It also renders the overall look fairly green. This is not unmanagable, but just be ready for that. 

I shot these at box speed and developed them in an Arista E6 kit, which I got from Freestyle photo. The 120 is much better than the 35mm film, the grain is more manageable, however, in the sky, the detail is not as good as provia, but otherwise, a stop faster is nice. I might try pushing it a stop or two next, to see how it handles. 

I will also say that this film is curly, very curly. I cut it, reverse rolled it and put it in a paper towel roll for two days, I kept it under 50 pounds of books and a weight, and it is still curly. It has been 4 days of trying to uncurl it, and it is still curly. Oh well. Such is life. 

Overall, I would buy this film again, it is some good stuff. 

All of these images were shot in my GF670 and GF670w.
