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.

Commissioned to photograph a wedding, I thought I'd take along my OM1 with Rollei RPX400 in it, to complement my D850. These shots were taken around the day of the wedding. I processed them myself in Rodinal. Really lovely grain to the photos and it worked well in bright sunshine too.
I have to start by saying that I am not generally a big fan of faster films but I thought that I'd try this for the first time now that the days are getting shorter and lighting is more challenging. I shot the film on a wet and windy Blackpool Promenade at high tide under fast changing light. I rated the film at box speed and wanting to try and reign in any grain, I developed the film in Ilfosol 3 at the time recommended on the Massive Dev Chart. Negatives were a good density despite the changing lighting and these scanned well. I was impressed by the exposure latitude, good strong contrast, without it being too overpowering, and the full tonal range. The one downside for me is that it is a bit too grainy for my liking so I wouldn't' consider it for serious landscape work. However I will reserve judgement slightly until I have tried making some darkroom prints!
Very nice shades, a great all-rounder B&W Film, strongly recommend. Great price for quality!
Great for portraits and one of the most dynamic films I've used to date ie it produces Very different results depending on the lens used - All of them good I hasten to add.
Pushed to 1600 this RPX400 gave a grainy finish. However it was pitch dark and with only minimum light available, I think did a great job. I don't mind the noise and this will be the first film in my general learning and testing that I will reorder from AW.
