Retro Photographic are pleased to announce the introduction of more of black
& white photographic products to their portfolio with the addition of the
ORWOpan 125 film and Calbe developers.
The history of the ORWO company is interesting - Agfa established a film factory
in Wolfen in 1909 called the VEB Filmfabrik AGFA Wolfen , ORWO (ORiginal WOlfen)
being established in 1964 when Agfa planned to close the facility and continues
the film manufacturing tradition to this day.
Retro Photographic will market ORWOpan 125 film initially in 35mm format. ORWOpan
125 is characterized by high edge sharpness, a fine grain and very wide exposure
latitude and is virtually identical to Ilford FP4 in both handling and processing.
Pricing is expected to be around £1.49.
Nigel Dear of Retro Photographic comments 'the Retro Photographic quest
of finding the unusual this time has come up with ORWOpan 125, a new film from
a company whose pedigree goes back to the beginning of the 1900's and we are
especially pleased to have sourced another product that is nicely complementary
to our existing portfolio'.
Calbe, also a German company, specializes in photographic chemistry and we
have selected Calbe A49 and Calbe F09 developers to complement the films in
our portfolio. The A49 and R09 products are the pre-war formulations of Agfa
Atomal and Agfa Rodinal respectively and as such are perfect for developing
the traditional high silver content films like Foma, Efke and Classic Pan.
ORWOPAN films and the Calbe developers are available directly from Retro Photographic
on 0800 915 97 51 or www.retrophotographic.com
where they can be purchased via our new secure online Web shop.
