Love the film, sharp, excellent tonal range, and grain free.

Rollei serious Quality control problem.

I've just wrote negative review for this film for 135-36 format where I attached some photos. After developing (Ilfotec DD-X) and scanning I've found that all images are covered with small white dots or flaxes, especially visible in mid-gray area. It appears on 120 roll also, but less pronounced, probably due to larger negatives. I believe this is absolutely unacceptable quality control for such great name as Rollei.

Solid film. Only shot one roll, but love the tone and contrast.

I agree with Joshua - serious quality control issues

My printer and I think we got to the bottom of it. I had this problem with one batch specifically. All others were fine, but every roll in the one batch was defective in the way described by the reviewer and it ruined an entire photographical trip that cannot be repeated. Rollei was less than helpful in trying to address issues. My printer and I would still like to discuss with Rollei as we think we know what is happening. It is definitely the film and not the camera or other external conditions.

I use this film with my Mamiya 645 AFD III because it's the closest I can get to Efke 25 or Adox CMS in 120mm format. I've used for years and become accustomed to its list of problems, but with my last three rolls I've had enough. I'm used to the emulsion being mis-cut/mis-sized, it's never fit it a 120mm medium format negative carrier or in a negative holder for a scanner – which I guess is okay. But my last three rolls were where I draw the line. I've been shooting, developing and traditionally printing film since I was a kid, I've never had this problem. After hand tanking my rolls and allowing them to dry, I started to sleeve them. Almost immediately I noticed that the negatives were covered with thousands of speckles as if there had been water damage. In good faith I took an unopened roll, removed the foil wrapper and shot half of it focused at infinity with a grey card filling the frame. I developed the roll only to find the same disturbing results. The moisture damage appeared even on unexposed half of the film stock. This is not worth my time and ruined a paid shoot.

I have used this film for a while in a Mamiya 645 AFD III because it's the closest I can get to something like Efke 25 in 120mm format. I've had problems with almost every roll I've purchased, but this time it was a bit much. At this point, I'm used to the emulsion being mis-trimmed/mis-cut. Often the exposures are off one side or another of the film stock, and it's never fit in a 120mm negative carrier or a film holder for a scanner given the bad cut. But after developing my last three rolls, I noticed that they are covered with thousands on speckles as if the film was damaged by moisture. In good faith I took an unopened roll and removed the foil wrapper, developed it blank and had the same disturbing results. I've been shooting film since I was a kid, but this is a bit much.

Seriously BAD Film

As others have reported I just got my two rolls of RPX 25 back from the lab and trip pictures are ruined. The white flecks all over entire roll make photos unusable. They went to a quality lab, The Darkroom and processed at two different times.   In addition the film is narrow compared to standard 120 so there is no border on one side of image. About 59mm compared to 61mm standard. Love my quality built Rolleiflex's still going strong after all these years. Too bad the Rollei name means nothing anymore.

Wunderbar !

question

Would anyone compare this with the late Agfapan 25 (APX 25)? Also, how well does this film do when processed with Rodinal/Adinal?
Asked by: Peter C
The film is very much like the old Agfapan 25. The film reacts about the same way to developers like Agfapan did.

question

What's the difference between rpx25 and rollei pan25 that was discontinued a few years ago?
Asked by: Christopher T.
It doesn't seem to be any difference as far as I can tell. There is no information online and after shooting both, there is no significant differences in the look.

question

any information on reciprocity?
Asked by: Jim
I've shot a couple rolls, I like the images and I did a couple long exposures without compensating and all negatives were of normal density. However even though it's an ASA 25 film the grain is finer with Ilford Pan f 50.
