Rollei RPX Film 35mm B&W ISO 25

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.

Love this film. It's slow so you definitely want some sun, but it has a gorgeous tonality and lots of lovely contrast. Being a slow film, it has very low grain. And probably best to get your metering correct as it can blow out the highlights a little. But apart from that - love it.
Having not used film for a number of years and not developed at home for over 20 years. What a way to start. I was hoping that the RPX 25 was pretty much the same as Agfa Pan 25 and it is.
I developed the film in Ilford ID-11.
It is a very high contrast film and is difficult to work with and very unforgiving in low contrast light. It is a very sharp film however I have to improve my scanning.
Please note I have included a scan of an original scan of Agfa APX 25 to give you a comparison.
I love this film and can't wait to get hold of another roll. Stunning silvery shadows remain beautifully defined in deep blacks when you get it right and grain is virtually non-existent. A great choice over Pan F 50 if you can cope with the additional stop, though harder to tame than the Ilford stock
