ORWO Unveils the New Color Film WOLFEN NC500

Film manufacturer Orwo has announced a new, limited-edition color negative film stock called WOLFEN NC500. This C-41 color emulsion is the first new color photographic film Orwo has launched in decades. The WOLFEN NC500 is a limited edition 500 ASA, 36 exposure, color photographic film and is produced on the company’s Bitterfeld-Wolfen site, where the photographic film has been manufactured since 1910.

“At the core of our new color film lies a unique chemical formula based on the wonderful and legendary Agfa stock last used in the Oscar-winning film ‘Out of Africa.’ Famous for their greens, desaturated shadows, and enhanced grains, these are all aspects we are embracing for our new addition,” says ORWO. “With WOLFEN NC500, we are not trying to imitate current stocks available on the market, we are creating an alternative, something with different characteristics and a different palette.”

ORWO is a German company and it only recently announced the Wolfen NP100, a brand new ISO 100 black-and-white 35mm film, which was its first new such film launched in 50 years.

Shipping is expected to begin at the end of July 2022. Pre-orders are available for $16 per roll.
