View Full Version : Possible defects in Adox films

cutting a film to verious formats really isnīt a big deal.
We will provide standard formats out of stock and offer special formats cut on demand.
With the cut on demand sizes it will be in a way that one box will cost almost the same as 5 boxes and after 10 or more boxes it gets almost as economical to buy this product as if it was 4x5". This reflects the actual manufactirung costs and is a very small quantity. You can then maybe team up with others and split the order if you need full plate or somthing else unusual.

Having just used Adox 100 10/8 for the last 3 months I have to say the film is of a very high quality ,I have not had a single problem with the emulsion , and processing in PMK gives a quality that more modern films can come close to ,I would highly recommend this film , just follow the instructions and all will be well. A big thank you to Adox for making such a fine film available
Thank you for your responses. It's been a while and somehow this thread disapeared for me.
I look forward to see the APX line back in sheet formats.
Thank you for introducing new (Old) products, the MCC paper just received looks fabulous.

Forgive me if this information is already available somewhere else, but is there a mailing list or something I can join so that I can be notified when an Agfa APX 100 equivalent/replacement is made available? It is one of my favorite emulsions; many people in these forums have been helpful in helping me source it (e.g. Rollei Retro), but I'm interested in this film for the long term, as well.

thebdt, you can subsribe to the dedicated adox-forum, so you get an email when there is a new topic or replies to old topics within this specific part of APUG.
Because I think it's safe to assume that a new ADOX-version of APX100/400 will be discussed here, it would be a good way to keep up-to-date :)

Indeed that would be very nice if the apx 100 would come back in 4x5...
A first box of 24x30 mcc arrived and I worked with it last weekend. I must say that I like the surface look. It does not curl much when drying.
I've found with the Croatian Adox films that I have fewer issues if I am sure that all my processing temperatures - pre-wash through wash - are within a few degrees.

You can sometimes distinguish coating pinholes by their comet shape. This is a dot as Mirko describes but with a tail.
This is a very distinct and recognizable coating defect. If it is not comet shaped, then the defect has a lower chance of being a coating defect and a greater chance of being something else.
Ah, perfect - thanks. Exactly what I got on my last two batches of Foma 200 in 35mm and 120.
