First Roll of Rollei CR200



Looks like I have fallen a month or so behind on this project. I have been up against a deadline and only just keeping my own blog active. But that deadline is past and now I can catch up a bit. I have not shot much in the past few weeks, but did shoot nearly 3 dozen rolls before my nose met the grindstone. To keep my blog going I have mined those rolls for good shots, but trying to leave a few nice ones so I can use some here too.

This is especially true of this roll of Rollei CR200. It is the first time I have used this film and am really pleased with it. I think it needs to be shot a bit slower, probably metering for ISO 160 would be good. But other than that I like the colours, the grain I can live with and in certain situations like shallow depth of field it makes the photo better than expected. This is a nearly affordable slide film, and as such I expect I will be using it quite a bit as I love the look of reversal films. I even added a couple of more rolls to the stash in the fridge.

I have included in the gallery below a few of the best shots already published on my blog; if you want to see all of them then check out this link.

    • Hi Eben – thanks for the comment. I love the colours, and the bouquet really shows what this film can do. Its why I went out and bought a few rolls for my stash.

    Here is my 52Rolls post with the rest of the Rollei CR200 roll of film I have been teasing my Burnt Embers readers with for a few weeks. I really like this film, there is going to be some to hand whenever I can get it.


    • Hi Kelly – I agree, it reminds me of old family shots from the 60s, probably made with Kodachrome, and indeed some of the Kodachrome slides I shot in the 70s and 80s. Must be why I like it!
