The inversible Black and White films

All Black and White films Noir et Blanc are inversibles, but just a few are providing
good results. We have tested and selected those that provide the best results.

The ADOX Scala 160 135/36 film

The original Scala 200x film beeing now unavailable, we have selected the ADOX Scala 160 135/36 film whose performances are identical.
  • Optimum use from 160 to 640 ASA,
  • Excellente B&W palette, from the brightess whites to the strongest blacks,
  • Sharp details thanks to a very fine grain,
  • Excellent contrast capture,
  • Long exposure without correction,
  • Very well adapted to scanning and large size printing,

The Rollei Retro 400S film

The Retro 400S is a black and White film. Thanks to its clear base, it can be used as an inversible film.
To get a nice grey pattern, we recommend to use it at 200 ISO.
At 400 ISO it provides highly contrasted images with dense shadows.
Developement of B&W inversible films
We develop B&W reversible films in an Hostert Transfert machine inverting the image within an insolation tank.
Compared to the chemical inversion method, that process warrants a perfect image inversion after the first development sequence.
Prices VAT included for B&W inversible development
