When in Germany or if you’re lucky and see a store nearby, go to any DM store and you’ll find this film. Buy it and use it and you’ll feel like a real German.
As I was saying, I bought this film as a souvenir, just because it says it’s made in Germany, and we know that everything made in Germany works flawlessly. Just take a look at Agfa, and also the fact that they invented 35mm format about 100 years ago.
This film, like any other, is made for daylight shots. It’s rated as 200 ASA.
I used this film on a sunny day basis but I think it will work best for long exposures too, due to the fact it’s a fine-grained and a medium speed film. I don’t think any reciprocity failure will show up, especially at very slow shutter speeds like 1 minute or so. Anything beyond that it should be a problem.
It was a snowy day so I thought it will be best to go outside and shoot some film. So I loaded my camera with a roll of Rossmann and started shooting. I guess the camera did its job, the 1-hour lab where I developed did it too, I did my job by scanning it and cropping where necessary and also uploading and talking about my experience with rossmann film here.
If you have the opportunity, buy a couple of these rolls and try one yourself. If you are looking for something special I suggest trying something else.
