    Lets Celebrate a New Product Announcement! Two new Rollei films announced

    With all the doom and gloom out there, its good to see announcements of two new films (well, rehashed, but its better then discontinued!)

    The new films are called RPX100 and RPX400. From what I have read, they are based on the AGFA APX films and they should be available in 135-36 in November and 120 in December. It also appears that these dates are for European release.

    A mighty Two thumbs up!

    Well, they (RPX 100/400) will be here tomorrow. 135-36 in Twin packs. The result of a cooperation between some more European manufacturers.

    Here are the data sheets:

    Together with the Rollei Retro 100 TONAL (Orthopan), I will test them in an Ultra Fine Grain test round.

    Is this from the same people who brought back the Agfa MCC paper as Adox? If so, I'm very interested. The Adox paper is excellent quality.

    No.

    These products are made in Europe and supervised by the Rollei-Maco company in Hamburg-Stapelfeld, Germany.

    Typical on the front page, RPX 100 data sheet, is the Croatian lady, retro (around 1920-30).

    Hope they reach the U.S. too. I liked the AGFA APX films.

    RobertV,

    To confirm, these films bare no relation to the forthcoming ADOX PAN 100 and 400 films? - Are the Rollei films on a polyester base?

    No, these films are on Acetate base. Due to the specs these RPX films have to compete with PXP/Tri-X - FP4+/HP5+ -Neopan 400 - Fomapan 100/400, all general purpose Panchromatic B&W films (Cubical/classical type films) .

    About the specs for ADOX 100/400 you have to ask Impex.

    Here are the English Rollei RPX 100/400 data sheets:

    oh my goodness! This is very exciting

    APX film used to be my absolute favorite black and white stock in 120 and I've mourned the loss of it for a very long time. If the price is decent it will take away a lot of the sting from loosing Neopan 400 in 120 sizes which is what I switched to after APX went away.

    I guess this may end up as one of those cases where life brings you full circle.

    I hope it becomes available at Freestyle.
