We absolutely love the moody timeless cinematic look of this film!It has beautiful grain, perfect contrast, and pleasant tones.
Inspired by the New German Cinema sweeping through Berlin in the 1960s, this film is extracted from a roll of cine film produced by a legendary German company that has been changing the face of cinema since the early 1900s. Originally used to make moody monochrome movies, its gorgeous black and white tones lend a timeless effect to cinematic scenes.
Gave this a try with my Olympus OM-1 35mm. I also shot a roll of 120 Kodak T-Max 400 with my Bronica (using my Olympus for light metering). The Darkroom processed both rolls. Comparatively speaking, the Berlin lacks any contrast and is very grainy. I’m the first to admit that I’m not an expert and still fairly novice with film photography so your mileage may vary. Given that I was shooting 2 B&W films essentially side-by-side using the same light settings, I was bummed by 98% of the Berlin shots I got back 😩
Fun Film with pronounced grain

Shot a roll of this walking around NYC. Developed it in D-76 and printed a couple on Ilford RC paper. I like it . It’s a fun film with a pronounced grain and an interesting look.
