    Well, there is my question - I have some Agfa APX 400 35mm film (odd rolls of 20 exp...) that I got at a "going d*****l" sale at one of the local traitors...uhm stores :smile:
    I noticed that the times for the old emulsion are much, much different than the times for the "new"... and I simply dont know what I have on hand. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thanks in advance,

    Peter.
