    At that price I think I will stick to my usual FP4 or whatever and Rodinal!

    I am talking about the developer not the film!

    If you buy 10 x 36exp from AG it is £39.99 or £3.99 a cassette (that's what I do.) Or buy in bulk that REALLY cuts down the price.

    Actually at a dilution of 1+29 and assuming you use the likes of DDX which many do and at the recommended 1+4 dilution then the dedicated developer works out cheaper. It is worth looking at Digital Truth's website as there is a test of Silvermax in the dedicated dev and in Rodinal and a comparison with Fomapan

    Unfortunately it was compared to say Ilford D100, TMax 100, Acros or even FP4+.

    There didn't see to be a lot in it and Silvermax didn't look noticeably better in the dedicated dev than in Rodinal but others' opinions may differ

    From the ADOX Website: http://www.adox.de/english/ADOX%20Fi...MAX_index.html

    "Starting values for different developers at 20°C:

    Silvermax dev. 1+29 11 Min.
    ADONAL/Rodinal 1+25: 8 Min.
    ADONAL/Rodinal 1+50: 12 Min.
    ATOMAL: 8-10 Min.
    D 76/ID 11: 9 Min.
    HC-110: 7 Min.
    FX-39: 8 Min.
    XTOL: 7 Min.

    Agitating:
    The first 30 seconds constantly and after this 4 times per minute.

    If your prefered developer is not listed try the value for APX 100 and deduct the time by 10%"

    Sorry everyone I missed out the word "not". It should have read: Unfortunately it was not compared to say Ilford D100 etc

    Adox Silvermax now available in the UK

    Hope it's not that expensive if and when it comes available in the US. Most of what I use now I can get 15-20% cheaper.
