One of the new films that I wrote about in my year of new film blog post was Rollei RPX 100.
This stuff is
really cheap. No scratch that. This stuff is really inexpensive.
You get it in double packs with no frills packaging. No fancy labels, no fancy DX coded film cannisters.
It’s decidedly old school.
I went to the Tall Ships Race in Greenock and took some film to shoot at the event.
I thought it would be a perfect day to test this Rollei stuff out.
Here’s a little preview of what I was doing.
This stuff won’t meter in my little Nikon so I had to guesstimate the exposures.
Or copy the setting across from digital as it’s also known.
Cheating? me? why of course
To cut a long story short, this stuff is wonderful.
You get really thick negatives, is quick to develop and scans really well.
And did I mention that it’s really inexpensive? It’s less than £2 a roll.
People think using black & white film is difficult or complicated.
It isn’t. any idiot can do it as I’ll demonstrate in my next post….
