While we all await for Ferrania's Chrome 100 and Kodak's Ektachrome revival, there's a new E-6 process film soon to grace analogue lovers.
Welcome Rollei's "Vario Chrome", a warm-toned, medium to high-speed color reversal film meant for low-level daylight and other light sources. The film is being produced by Maco Direct, the German distributor which also produces films under the Rollei brand.
" Rollei Vario Chrome has a medium degree of sharpness, its image results are characterized by a slightly visible grain and a warmish image tone. As the name of the film suggests it has a broad exposure latitude from 200 to 400 ISO (DX coded at 320 ISO). If you intend to project the slides we suggest to shoot the film at 200 ISO whereas 320-400 ISO is preferable for scanning applications."
The pre-sale of the film will begin next Monday, July 3; shipping will be between July 10 and July 14.
