Rollei RPX 100 - 120 Film
Now: £5.50 GBP
One of the most popular black and white medium format emulsions due to it's famous rich tones and shadow detail - with a higher sensitivity than the ISO 25, this film is more flexible but the results will remain fantastically sharp and clear.

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.

I tried this out in my newly acquired Kiev 6C and rated the film at 25asa. It was developed in Rodinal for 5 min 15 sec. The images are contra sty and show grain. This may be because of the way I developed this film. It is a film I may come back to and try at rated speed with a different developer
Pleasant enough (though only shot a few rolls to date) but seems to have a problem with drying flat, which means either rectifying the curl or a much slower scanning experience)
I'll start off by saying that I'm a bit biased when it comes to Rollei film. I love the contrast, the tonality and the punch it gives my photos. It's also very clean. However, until now my experience had been with the Rollei Retro films (both 80 and 400), so wasn't sure for certain what I'd get back from the RPX.
At first, the scans came back looking way overexposed which concerned me. If I had deliberately overexposed then I would have expected it but I metered at box speed (unless I set the wrong ISO on my meter - not unheard of!). However, I need not have worried because I pulled that exposure right back down to where it should be with lots of lovely contrast too. Yum. This film has a lot of range.
I really quite like this. Stunning contrast but still with a lot of detail in the shadows. The examples I've posted her are quite contrasty but there was even more detail in some of those blacks if I'd wanted to pull more out. Nice!
