Rollei RPX25 – Nice to see you again (120 Format)

I started shooting again with Rollei RPX 25, but this time with my medium format camera.
I had used this film in 35mm format and was the most contrasted and detailed black and white film that had photographed so far. Well, it still is!

The sharpness was what caught my attention. It is incredible! and it seems that the Rodinal developer and this film work very well together.
The grain is almost none.

With this format, I confirm everything I had previously reviewed.
– Refined and detailed – Check
– Contrasted, but with details in the shadows – Check
– Fine grain – Check
– Silver images that refer to classic photography – Check, Check, Check!

This last topic became clearer in this batch of rolls that I photographed.
I initially thought it could have been a light meter error, after all it resulted in very contrasted and too white images. But I had 3 rolls photographed on different days with the same results. Being careful as i am, i discarted making the same mistake 3 times.
Some of the photographs look silver. Others I may have overexposed at least 1stop and with that I can say that this roller does not forgive light meter errors.
At least to me.

Mamiya 645 – Rollei RPX 25 – Lisboa

Voltei a fotografar com Rollei RPX 25, mas desta vez com a minha máquina de médio formato.
Já tinha usado este rolo no formato 35mm e foi o rolo mais contrastado e detalhado a preto e branco que tinha fotografado até agora. Bom, ainda é!

A nitidez foi o que me mais me chamou à atenção e é incrível e parece que o revelador Rodinal e esta película funcionam muito bem juntos.
E sim! é verdade a questão do grão. Quase nenhum. ISO 25 MALTA!

Com este formato, confirmo tudo o que já tinha revisto anteriormente.
– Refinado e detalhado – Check
– Contrastado, mas com detalhes nas sombras – Check
– Grão fino – Check
– Imagens prateadas que remetem à fotografia clássica – Check, Check, Check!

Este ultimo tópico ficou mais nítido nesta fornada de rolos que fotografei.
Pensei inicialmente que pudesse ter sido um erro de fotometria, afinal de contas tinha como resultado imagens muito contrastadas e demasiado brancas. Mas eu tinha 3 rolos fotografados em dias diferentes com os mesmo resultados. Sendo cuidadosa, descartei errar 3 vezes.
Algumas das fotografias tem este aspecto prateado. Outras posso ter sobre-exposto pelo menos 1stop e com isso posso dizer que este rolo não perdoa erros de leitura de luz.
