Potsdam Kino is an ISO 100 traditional black and white film. It seems that it is certainly capable of delivering fine grained images which have a decent contrasty punch to them. Whether it is preferable to the likes of Ilford FP4 or Kodak T-Max 100, is only something you can judge after trial and experimentation.

A Legendary Roll of German Cine Film Reborn
Inspired by the New German Cinema sweeping through Europe in the 1960s, Lomography’s Kino Films are extracted from rolls of cine film produced by a legendary German company that has been changing the face of cinema since the early 1900s. Originally used to make moody monochrome movies, their gorgeous black and white tones lend a timeless effect to cinematic scenes.
Classic Analogue Aesthetics For Gorgeous Greyscale Pictures
Just like its bigger brother Berlin, the Lomography B&W Potsdam Kino Film casts an unmistakable monochrome charm on 35 mm format. With a medium speed of ISO 100, it’s perfect for sunny day and scenes where attention to detail is desired. With a classic fine grain structure and subtle contrast, this powerful and poetic film is a truly outstanding emulsion.
