127 Day - Summer 2015

Baby Ikonta with Rollei RPX25
In my previous post I described how I made a film slitter, to cut down 120 medium format film to the width of 127 format. This was partly to ensure I had some film to shoot on yesterday's 127 Day; I cut down and shot one roll of Ilford Delta 3200, Rollei RPX25 and Fomapan 400 apiece. As the length of 120 film exceeds that of 127, I used the end of each length of film for a second roll, which was long enough for 3-4 frames with the Baby Ikonta, which shoots 16 3x4cm frames on a normal 127 roll. All films were developed in Ilfotec LC29; as there are no listed times for RPX25 with Ilfotec LC29, I used a similar time and dilution as I had done for RO9 One Shot, 1:150 for 15 minutes. The results were thin negatives, but with a good tonal range, reducing the film's inherent contrast.
