Actually Rollei rebranded the old Agfa RSX-II 200 into the Rollei CR200 for 35mm and 120 still photography so you could have a look there, there's many things on the internet about it. It's a beautiful film stock, slightly warm and with less saturation than more modern reversals, looks very natural. But it's also more grainy. Without this grain it would be one of my favorite for still photography.

It can be cross processed sure, but it will get very contrasty and you can't predict which tones you'll get. But it's worth a try!

Hi

that stock is aviphot. I have cross processed it in super 8 in ecn chemistry. Grain was unbelievable! It was like pictures drawn with a blunt crayon. virtually abstract.

Here are some examples (none of them are cross processed) shot by forum members

Friedemann Wachsmuth, Heikki Repo and Maik Lobborn, respectively.

The results seem amazing! I particularly liked the A-Minima one. It is nos kosher though!

Richard, I am planning to use Unicolor C41. Itis the only available chemistry to be mailed to Mexico City. How you got ECN chemicals? Are they available down under in bulk?

I like the unpredictability of cross process but I'm not sure if I want that all the time.

If I were payng that much I wouldn't see the point.

I don't see the point either Mark but I gave up on trying to import the E6 Tetenal developer. It is impossible to get it in Mexico. I love the colours of reversal but I guess I'm stuck.

 

Thanks all for your comments and tips!

Forgive me, I had forgotten your dilemma.

But I do wonder why C41 can be mailed and not E6. Maybe it's the bleach. Presumably you've asked the C41 supplier if he'll post E6.

C41 comes in powder, the Tetenal comes in liquid form. I still have no clue why the difference. Perhaps you're right and the bleach is the one that is more dangerous.

Not that I used this film anyhow as it was not good in the Super 8 format, but it has been discontinued. Availability is now while supplies last. :(

 

Come on Film Ferrania, you are our only hope! Well, maybe that very low chance that Fuji will come around some day. But, I doubt it.

this film is still available and reasonable priced on filmphotographyproject.com. think it's the only color reversal until ektachrome 4th quarter. kinda sounds like the price includes processing too, sans shipping. just grabbed a cartridge.
