The Rollei Retro 100 is perhaps the best b&w film to achieve the most “classical” (in the best sense of the word of course! ;) b&w pictures. The very fine grain and overall qualities of the b&w sensibility is to be found in this film. I think personally that the secret of this film lies on its middle tones, between the black and the whites. It give the pictures something deep and “alive” and you can wonder how “real” this b&w film is although the reality you shot is in color!

This retro 100 is much richer than some color films and has much more subtility and “reality” than most of other b&w films around the market. It’s really one of my favorites b&w films for sure!
