    This is another interesting black & white film we have on offer. I was lucky enough to come across a small stash of this MACO UP 400 plus during a clearance sale at a small Belgian photo shop. It comes in 12 exposure rolls with frame numbers. Perfect for testing out a new camera, or when you're just not in the mood for shooting a couple dozen photos or more and you want to see the results quickly instead of waiting days to finish a longer roll.

    MACO (or Hans O. Mahn Gmbh & co.kg) offered their own brand of film for a while from their headquarters near Hamburg, Germany. but since 2004 they sell other films, mostly under the Rollei name, along with films from Adox. AgfaPhoto, Foma and Ilford, etc...

  There has been some discussion as to who the original manufacturer of this particular film was. Many assert it was Ilford, while others suggest it may be Efke, or Agfa. Though as you can see below, it clearly has the MACO edge printing and frame numbers. It has also been said that MACO sold several different stocks of film under the same name, so we may never know for sure, but it's a fun film all the same.

This batch expired around 2004 but is still giving some very nice results as you can see.

You can see pictures shot with this and our other unique films in the:  LABEAURATOIRE FLICKR GROUP

Here's your chance to try out a couple of rolls of this great film. I'm making a very limited number of rolls available for your experimenting pleasure. 


    I'm keeping these rolls inexpensive by sticking on an artsy label I've made just so you know what's inside. These are NOT bulk loaded so you should get the full 12 exposures if not more. However, this is not a stock product from Maco and I am not proporting to represent that fine company in any manner.

My examples were all developed in our very own Labeauratoire's Caffenol Concoction for about 15 min. at 20 c.
