Personal Comments : Rollei CR200 is similar to Rollei CN200. Both are available in 100′ Bulk Rolls. CR200 is the film used in the Rollei Creative Series “Crossbird”. The Colors when cross processed tends to be warm when shot outside, and more on the cooler side (think greens and blues) when shot in shade/shadow. Greens tend to come out really saturated. The film has a really low reciprocity factor, so I personally wouldn’t suggest exposures longer than 2 seconds. All in all a good cheap-ish, Readily available slide film.
PS: Macodirect.de Stocks 100ft rolls.

  1. I love the look of this xpro’d -does it need the additional two stops exposure? I’ve seen this in disposable cameras recommending either C41 *or* E6, but I haven’t seen any advice on whether to ask for “plus two” if I C41 it.

    1. Techincally I’ve been told that the lab pushes the films in cross processing to exaggerate the colors. But I read somewhere that Lomokev (the demigod of lomo) doesn’t push films and just shoots box speed.

      I guess its all about experimentation!
