Attention, film photographers! KONO! is ending 2019 with a bang; they just dropped a new, vibrant film for all you lovers of fun and funky emulsions. If you’ve ever been curious about trying out the redscale look but have no idea how to make one yourself, this is an option you might want to consider. The new ROTWILD No2 film joins the KONO! Classic Film lineup and is the second iteration of the ROTWILD ISO 400 redscale film. If you’ve been waiting for the ROTWILD ISO 400 to restock, you can grab this instead.
According to the company, this experimental 35mm film is a limited edition emulsion and can be shot from ISO 100 to ISO 400. This extra exposure latitude will let you play with different intensities of the redscale effect in all kinds of lighting conditions. It yields 36 exposures, while the previous ROTWILD version only had 24 exposures. If you’re developing your own films, this new emulsion uses the readily available C-41 processing.
Sure, the fiery red hues may not be for everyone, but for those who don’t mind trying something new, this effect can yield some interesting results. We can imagine this film would be great for anything that could use a splash of extra color — or a different take on monochromatic imagery. Take a look at some sample portrait snaps below by Zachary Nystrom to give you some ideas.
