Testing out the Rollei Chrome CR200 Colour Reversal film on my Hasselblad 500 C/M

I recently bought the Rollei 120mm colour film, which was on sale at a reduced price whilst purchasing some silver gelatin paper.

I had read that the Rollei Chrome CR 200 is an E-6 colour slide film which has rich, warm colours and subtle contrasts. It can be cross developed (C-41 process).

I knew I wanted to test this film out in my Hasselblad. I’ve recently become quite addicted to black and white photography so this was the first colour film that I decided to try and I was very excited to see the results.

After doing some research on the film and looking at other people’s photos online who had used it, I decided that I preferred the warm tones and colours when the film is cross processed under C-41 so got my film developed this way.

Here are a couple of photos I took of my nephews:



I was really pleased with how the above photos turned out. I felt the film being cross processed gave a warm vintage feel to the photos. I feel the colours all blend in together in a nice subtle way. I also love the crisp detail of the trees that my camera has managed to capture.

I next took some photos of blossom trees:

Again, there is very much a warm tone to these photos and I particularly like the darkness of the tree against the bright blue sky. Also the blossom has a yellow tint to it.

Lastly, I took some photos on the beach with the waves and sky:


I love the water detail in these photos and was surprised to see that the clouds almost look like paintings.

I especially love the last photo which I feel has a real 1970s dreamy, advert feel to it.

  1. Looks a lot like expired Fuji Superia that I shot some years ago. Interesting about the granularity in the sky in the last shots. Almost looks more like scanning artifacts, have you inspected the slides? Neat results though, I particularly like the warm tonality on the portrait shots!

    • Thanks Johnny 😊 yes I’m unsure what happened with the sky in those shots…perhaps it’s my scanner? I use an Epson V600 which is normally adequate for me for my scanning. I quite like it in a way though…gives them a 70s Vintage feel I think πŸ‘
