During my holiday last week I planned on trying to shoot a roll of film everyday which due to the rubbish weather I didn’t manage but I did shoot some Rollei RPX 400 in the Fuji GW690III.
As I said the weather was pretty grim here in South Wales so I decided to push the film to 800 iso so that I could at least stop down the aperture to attempt to get some decent DOF.
I developed the roll in ilfotec HC at 1+15 dilution for 5.30 mins and scanned using my Epson v500.
Overall I was impressed with how the film performed especially as I pushed it a stop, the level of detail was excellent and the grain was pretty smooth.
I have done a few prints from this roll and they really look good on paper, so much nicer to have a print in your hands than just on the screen ….. Print your stuff I say.
Anyway here are the images ….
All images on my blog are available as prints just drop me an email
I also have a film only blog over at usingfilm.wordpress.com if you want a peek 🙂

Excellent Tim – its always good to avoid bright sunshine!
Just purchased a GW690III this Spring. Love your photos. And they’ve given me some ideas how I can pick better subjects and improve my outcomes.
