    Rollei has just released a new unusual film called the Rollei Redbird. It is a C41 400 ISO film, which accentuates reds in a shutter speed dependent manner apparently (if that's not clear, read all about it here). It looks like fun as the results might be quite unexpected.

    Huh. Really strange, eh? Guess the best way to see if it's worth having around is to run a couple rolls, at various speeds and see if you like what you get.

    I wonder how successful the machine at your local one-hour photo will be at "fixing" the picture.

    5 Euros per roll.. anyone know how much that is in USD? I'd be interested in ordering some if it's not bad.. though I bet shipping would be killer

    After all the time I've devoted to getting to the point where I can click the shutter and have a good idea of the final picture, you tell me about UNEXPECTED??? ;-))

    I'm not sure why I would want a film manufacturer to "unexpectedly" decide how my photos will look. :lol:

    It sounds like after a roll or two, it wouldn't be so unexpected. Longer exposure=more red.
