To understand more about the details above you can check out our film guide or if you want some inspiration then head over to our page on choosing your next film. And if you want the full details about the film, including technical information, read about Rollei RPX over on EMULSIVE.

As a company Rollei is most famous for it's cameras - particularly the iconic twin-lens Rolleiflex - but this German-based company founded in 1920 has also had a long history of making B&W films. Unfortunately the parent company didn't survive the digital revolution of the 90s/00s but the brand survives today under licence to AgfaPhoto - who continue to support emulsions old and new.

Great film with good contrast and fine grain.

Rollei RPX 25 is a great film with outstanding technical quality. The grain appears to be very fine, although I scanned it on an Epson v550 flatbed which probably didn't do it justice. Great for longer exposures with a tripod and ND filter as with ISO 25 is easier to achieve eg. silky smooth water surface. Could be also used for a daylight portraits with shallower depth of field. But you definitely need to know what you want to achieve with such a low ISO film so if you're just starting out, go for something more sensitive.

Rollei RPX25

I use RPX25, almost exclusively, for my medium format pinhole work as the ultra low sensitivity is perfect for long exposures. The film offers fine grain, great contrast and is easy to work with.

Poor quality 120 film

I purchased this film from another supplier in 120 format. After developing every frame came out blotchy. According to Macodirect, the German exporters, it was most likely a fault with the coating of the backing paper. They have agreed to supply replacement film bu as yet have to received anything. Looking online there are other issues with this film to do with poor quality so probably best avoided, although I have used RPX 100 in 35mm format and it has been fine. Think I'll stick with Ilford FP4+ in the future.

Lovely tones

I bought this film to try it out. First time using it. Was really impressed by the lovely black tones. Qutie contrsaty, dark in the shadows. I was shooting with small apetures so tripod/cable release is advised. Looking forwrd to try the 400iso next. Recommended.

too narrow for Paterson/AP spool

i bught this film in hope of getting some smooth photos of Liverpool's waterfront architecture. it didn't happen though. when I tried to load it onto dev spool (AP ones and Paterson one) it got stuck. after 40 min. fight i gave up. I pulled film out of light tight bag and ruined it on purpose. I tried to load it in bright light just to see what the heck is wrong? i did it after 7 - 10 attempts. did i mention i developed 135 and 120 for years with those reels? AND THEN something in my head told me - measure it! I did... %^&*^&^%!!!! 59 mils instead of regular 61!!! (thats standard 120/220 width, I checked with Ilford and Kodak). probably it would go with steel reel. don't know. or maybe i just got bad batch, don't know. checked Rollei 80s - 61 mm. so it's not common (?) VERY dissapointed
