    I bought an AP bulk loader some time ago on theBay, and the seller said that there was a roll of Ilford HP5+ in the loader. After rolling up all the remaining film in the bulk loader (must have been a full roll, gave me more than 15x36 rolls) I shot a cpl of them and developed, it turned out to be Agfa APX 100.

    The plastic is quite thick and hard and easily curls after it is dried. Anyway, I like the way it looks (though my 2-3 first rolls were ruined since I thought they were 400 iso, and even underexposed 2 of them to test, 2 full stops to 1600) developing in Rodinal 1:100 using stand development.

    I found some kind of APX-100 in Germany, but not in bulk, and looking at the film/plastic/emulsion, they are not quite the same as the stuff I got in the bulk loader Were could the roll in the loader have come from, and is it possible to get more of it somewhere?


    Thanks!

    Ah, that may explain where this roll came from then, the bulk loader was bought from a Spanish or Portuguese seller...
