The Rossman ISO 200 Developed in E6

2011-06-24 2

A Lomo-Greenhorns happy accident: Developing Rossmann ISO 200 in E6: XPro a little different! The affordable Rossmann ISO 200 is wonderful for these experiments!

About a month ago I bought my first Lomographic camera: a Sprocket Rocket. Still very wet behind the ears, I wanted to cross my Rossmann ISO 200, not knowing that it’s more common to cross slide films.

After reading some threads of an bulletin board for photography I realized my misunderstanding — but the film was already being developed. Concern came over me. Have the 5EUR, for the development in E6, had now been for naught? The comments of the user weren’t that good: You should let film get pushed, they say. The results aren’t that good, they say. Not really recommended, according to most people. Someone even rumored that it would be detrimental to the chemistry!

Restless, I was on my way to pick up the film. They gave me the film, I paid for it: everything seemed fine. Impatiently, I opened the envelope in front of the store and – was thrilled! Granted, only 7 of 18 images have become something, however: The result was justification enough!

Now some words about the film itself: the Rossmann ISO 200, developed as slide film, clearly shows his hunger for light. The following pictures were taken shortly after noon (it was cloudy) and look like they were shot late at night with flash. The film is thus very good for multiple exposures, as shown in the picture with the Ferris-Wheel.

The film I shot was not pushed in the development! Try out pushing the film, it might do him some good! Apart from the development itself – for me 5EUR – the cheap Rossman ISO 200 is ideal for such an experiment: a 4-pack costs 3.45 Euros.

After further research, I was able to find out that some negative films, development in E6, behave exactly reversed: react very sensitive to light. So there is still much to explore, for example: Rossmann ISO 400 in E6! Tell me about your experience!

The picture in the woods was taken with the bulb setting of Sprocket Rocket, because it was very dark at the time (noon, cloudy). The image on the Ferris wheel was made in the afternoon sunshine. The other pictures are a long exposure of the b/w classic “The Third Man” (1949) by Carol Reed, starring Orson Wells.

The images were scanned with an “Epson Perfection V500 Photo”. I did not remove the cover of the second light-unit! I just used the settings for a simple image, because the results had been more satisfying.
I used the glass of a simple picture frame to flatten the film. Just make sure to tape around the corners to prevent scratches on the glass of the scanner, and of course clean the glass of fingerprints and dust!

Have fun trying!
