De Rollei RPX 400 35mm starter kit bevat tien kleinbeeld RPX 400 films met bijhorende Rollei RPX-D (SPUR PXD) filmontwikkelaar (250ml) goed voor de ontwikkeling van tien films.
Rollei RPX 400 is a high speed black-and-white negative film based on an all-new black-and-white emulsion especially made by Harman (Ilford) for Rollei. It is well-suited to use in general indoor and outdoor conditions and is panchromatic sensitized from 380-660nm at 2850K.
The film exhibits a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° and can be developed in most black-and-white film developers. However, the film delivers best results when developed in the dedicated Rollei RPX-D film developer. RPX-D fully uses the nominal sensitivity of RPX400 and delivers high acutance and excellent detail reproduction, even when pushed.When developed at the standard development times, the film yields a characteristic fine grain texture similar to Kodak Tri-X and Ilford HP5, combined with notable sharpness and a wide tonal range.
RPX 400 also features a broad exposure latitude, making it well-suited to push and pull development. The film delivers consistent good results even when pushed up to ISO 1600.
Rollei RPX-D is a black-and-white film developer and is identical to the PXD film developer from SPUR. RPX-D has been specifically designed for the development of the Rollei RPX 400 films.
RPX-D uses the nominal sensitivity of Rollei RPX 400 perfectly and yields high acutance and excellent detail reproduction. RPX-D also yields high quality results when pushing to ISO 800 or even ISO 1600, with no visible change in the tonal value.
The recommended times and dilutions for RPX 400 are:
20 °C / 68 °F
22 °C / 71.6 °F
24 °C / 75.2 °F
25° C / 77 °F
