ORWO NP55 Black-and-White Film ISO 64
We got our hands on a limited amount of this vintage film and we have loaded it at our finishing plant into 35mm x 36 Exposure cartridges.
The Original Wolfen black and white films have tantalized photo enthusiasts for many years and NP55 is no exception and is absolutely perfect for your photo fun experimentation. This much beloved emulsion is extremely rare and we have a small amount of this Orwo stock squirreled away for a grainy day.
These films are vintage, outdated, and we have included a few examples of images we produced with these exact emulsions, shooting at ISO 64.
For some of you that may not be all of that familiar with ORWO here is a brief background. ORWO is an abbreviation for "Original Wolfen" as it was manufactured in the pre war Agfa plant of Filmfabrik Wolfen, in the East-German town of Wolfen.
In addition to film for still photography, Wolfen made cine film and film and plates for radiography. After the war the plant was in the area that became East Germany
and continued to function as the Agfa Brand in behind the iron curtain and the in the Soviet Satellite States. Agfa went on to build their new plant in Leverkusen, and
eventually in the early 1960's the Wolfen Plant took on the trade Mark ORWO.
