    Rollei RPX 100

    I developed a roll of rpx 100 (35 mm) in Rodinal 1+50 , 18 min 20C°.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/6895228...ream/lightbox/


    Relative low grain(rodinal ....) , wide latitude different gray scale, and different contrast.( fp4+ or others 100)

    It's too early to judge this film, but on internet pages there are a lot of legends :
    it's a kentmere ..... it' not like real apx .. .....eccc .


    I dont know ! i know only that is a cooperation with Harman with a new/different emulsion that replicate original apx.
    But this not the matter ... the real important question is : is rpx good for you?


    Have you try this film ?

    > replicate original apx.

    The film has nothing to do with apx 100. You see it clearly (!) when you poure out your Rodinal: No purple color.
    RPX 100 ist Kentmere 100.

    $7.19 a roll from B&H vs $3.89 for Acros and $4.09 for Tmax 100. Why RPX 100? Maybe this stuff is cheaper elsewhere?

    This is not a bad film. I found it to be an good universal film with classical look.

    And it's worth so much more money than Acros and Tmax 100?

    Over here it's cheaper (4.30$) than Tmax 100.

    (That does not answer your question about being it worth, but shows that this film is not basically intended to be a high-price film.)

    $7/roll for RPX 100 35mm 36x versus $2.95 for Kentmere at B&H. If they're the same that's quite a price difference.

    Here in Germany:
    Acros: 5€50
    TMX: 4€00
    K100: 2€60.

    Please keep i n mind K100 is sold in double boxes sometimes (2 films). I looked at B&H and found the film for 2$95:
