New Emulsion.
New Film.
35mm High Speed B&W.


Dearest Humans,

Our chief darkroom elf told me about a leftover bulk roll of our homemade black and white ISO 1000 film. It’s the film we use to check up on naughty and nice children here in the dark Nordic winters.

I thought it would be a nice gift for our human photographers to finally try this special film. I went to Santa himself and asked if I could share some.

"Have they been good this year?". He said. I was nervous without first having actually counted up the naughty vs nice photographers.

"Ye.. Yes. I believe they have been more encouraging to each other than any time in the last two decades."

“Ho-ho-ho!” laughed Santa and said "If you can get out 1000 rolls you can do it, otherwise it’s going back to the elves!"

So, on my next surveillance tour I dropped off a bunch of rolls for people to try. After Christmas we should see their first results. If the humans like it I can split the bulk roll into 1000 twenty-four exposure rolls.

So please, if you are interested in getting this film please leave your electronic correspondence address above and I will take it as a reservation of an order. I think someone knows I am on the computer, I must go.

All the best, Rae
(the Rogue Analog Elf)

Wish List

Help us convince Santa to release a second batch of film by adding your name to the wish list.






What is the new film?

The new film is Santa RAE 1000. A new 35mm 1000 ASA high speed black and white film.

Is this a new emulsion?

Yes. Outside of the powers of the north, this has not been available to humans or the analog community worldwide.

Am I charged money now?

No. We won’t ask anyone to purchase until the first 1000 rolls are ready for shipping via human logistics. Also at that time we can calculate exact shipping costs.

Will there be more?

Santas factories do manufacture this yearly, so it is possible that I ask once I can show humans are using it nicely and not naughtily. It could also be distributed in other formats.

Will it be DX coded?

You humans have too many digital film cameras. We use fully mechanical ones at Korvatunturi. The first batch will be hand spooled into old canisters, so there might be a DX code, but it might also be the wrong DX code. You can deactivate it by adding any sticker on top.

How can I help?

Elves have no access to human social medias and it would be quite odd of me to pop up at your local camera club, please do share with your friends for me.

When will it be available?

The first 1000 rolls are being shipped as of March 6th 2019.
