German film brand ORWO has announced Wolfen NP100, its latest ISO 100 black and white film stock. As reported by KosmoFoto, this is the company’s first new film since its parent company, Filmotech, merged with fellow German film producer InovisCoat back in 2020.
ORWO describes Wolfen as ‘an exceptionally fine grain 100 ASA, 36 exposure, black and white photographic film’ whose name is a nod back to ORWO’s beginnings in 1960s when the company was formed after the split of AGFA following World War II.
The film stock is produced in Bitterfeld-Wolfen, at the site of the company originally started back in 1910. Below are a collection of sample galleries captured on the new film stock, provided by ORWO:
ORWO has only made 36,000 36-exposure cassettes of Wolfen NP100, which are going up for pre-order starting today, April 20, 2022. The first orders are expected to ship in June 2022. ORWO has also teased a new ECN-2 cinema film, which it says will be released later this year for 35mm cameras.
