A little while ago I was sent a couple of rolls of Rollei Variochrome slide film to play with and to say I’m not impressed with the results are a massive understatement!

One roll was exposed at a classic car rally on a bright autumn day and although I didn’t have high hopes I did at least have some hopes of decent images… I mostly bracketed one stop either way of the meter reading and the above image is the ‘best’ of the lot!

The images are dull, lifeless, very grainy and not one is ‘correctly’ exposed and all these problems seem to have been noted by pretty much everyone who’s tried this film… I’m definitely in no hurry to expose the second roll!
