There's just been an annoucement that there'll be an addition to the Rollei RPX series, this time it's an ASA 25 version. Looks like more technical-type of film to me, I really liked their ORT25 film so would be interesting to how this new film renders b&w images.
Newest addition to the popular RPX family: Rollei RPX 25.
With the Rollei RPX 25, we have a low-speed panchromatic black and white film with a nominal sensitivity of ISO 25/15 ° in our product range again.
The Rollei RPX 25 is characterised by a high sensitivity reserve of one f-stop, depending upon development. The thin-section document-emulsion is poured onto a highly transparent base and offers an extraordinary sharpness, with finest grain.
Has anyone tried it yet? I wonder what that particular "extraordinary sharpness" translates into. Or is it Agfa APX 25 rebadged?
I know it's for sale starting with January 2014, but hoping maybe someone "insider" can already give some thoughts on this :)
