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

Worked well in my Holga in very bright conditions on Dartmoor and in more subdued light under the trees. Need to get some more for my latest purchase a Lubitel 166B - it's addictive this film lark!!

Clearly a great film

Experimented with this film on a bright sunny day so to cut down the light I used a Yellow filter to enhance details in the stonework. The film was processed in Rollei RPDX developer for the suggested 10 min . I loved the range of tones reproduced the stonework seemed to glow. It is definitely a film I will return to

Super tonal range

I exposed this film on a Rolleiflex T TLR with ASA at 200 and developed in Ilfotec HC at 1:31 dilution for 6 minutes. The negatives were photographed with a macro lens and imported to Lightroom for post processing. My experience is that this technique produces very flat digital files but with all the information retained to produce a fine tonal range with which to work.
All of the shots on this roll were in woodland in low light but with occasional pools of dappled sunlight.
The film coped well with the occasional high contrast shots, and gave beautiful rich shadow tones with good detail retained. Examining the sky area at magnification in the attached image revealed very fine grain.
The film dries flat.
Currently this film is slightly more expensive than HP5+ and a lot cheaper than Tri-X, so well worth exploring. This is my first roll used but I will be ordering more.

Gorgeous tones, excellent landscape film

First off, RPX400 definitely does have amazing tones. The tones are very rich and yet still hold a lot of detail. This sample picture of a tree shows what I mean.
There is some grain. In this 120 format I can just about pick up some grain but it's unobtrusive and definitely not unpleasant. Sharpness is good and overall I'm quite happy with the results.
With the mood and tones the film delivers I'd say its a perfect landscape film. It's really well suited to it. Probably not my first choice for portraits, but great for most other uses.
I would say it probably needs slightly more exposure than 400, but that's common with a lot of films.
It's not going to replace my HP5 for general use any time soon, but it stands up very well. For landscapes I might even say RPX400 is better.
Overall a good film and I'm glad I gave it a shot (no pun intended).

Rollei RPX 400

I bought the film to test a Zeiss Ikon folding camera, as this was my first time with the camera I didn’t know if it worked or not. Sadly it doesn’t focus ( could be me though!) so all the photos were blurred. Will try this film in another camera I know works.
