The Rollei RPX series is, in my opinion, film that never seem to get enough love. It’s easy to see why. The market is somewhat saturated with black and white film, with options from the major players like Kodak and Ilford as well as plenty more from smaller niche manufacturers like Bergger and Film Ferrania….

It’s so gloomy and depressing these days. The pandemic is still ongoing, the weather decided to catfish us into hoping for snow, I’ve gained some pandemic weight and they discontinued my favourite 120 colour film recently.

2021 is upon us, and its off to an interesting start. While the pandemic is still raging on, the days are still cloudy and no snow in sight – with a few coup attempts and celebrity divorces too. With how chaotic and moody everything seems to be these days, we figured why not take it…
