Rollei RPX 100
Rollei RHS DC
I have a personal theory. The guy that comes up with the names for Rollei products is Franz Kafka. Ortho, Pan, SuperPan, ATO, RPX, Retro, RetroS, R3, Redbird…. these are just some films.
The developers are easier to deal with.
RBM2, RBM3, RBM4, RBM5, RHS, RHS DC, RLS, RPN, RPW…
On top of that mess, there’s very little information and the developer bottles have wrong time tables printed on them. For a company that offers so many options, most of them very specific, they are not very user friendly.
On the other hand I was more concerned about using Rollei’s version of an all purpose film, like the RPX 100 and 400 in 35mm and the Retro 400S in 120mm. I want to find out if they suit my needs against the more expensive choices like TriX or the Deltas. Bottom line it’s not all about the cost but also very much about the results. The Rollei RPX 100 is a wonderful, wonderful 35mm film. Loved it from the first time and when used in combination with the Rollei RHS DC it delivers rich, deep and contrasted negatives. Nice tight grain making it very sharp.
The Rollei RPX 100 is my new all around 100 ISO film!
