    Here is old emulsion APX100 vs new emulsion APX400

    The labels are sure different, ie 100 level is printed better....but, do we really buy film for label characteristics?

    Ohhh Lupus, if your reading, not the best customer service to not have a dev table on your site???

    It's kind that you've distributors (ie Macodirect) who host these data for you and folks like us to get your msg out....

    Thanks Andy, I've also found the chart in the link and nothing on the AgfaPhoto site.

    Thanks Andy!
    I was looking for the tube or canister as we call it in the UK, not so much the cassette. I suspect it is black, isn't it?

    I purchased some of this a couple of weeks back. haven't had a chance to use it yet. Personally I am not bothered who made it. It gives me an option. When some manufacturers are stopping production both colour and black & white should we not be grateful when something else does come out. It might not be up to the T-max / Delta standard or be in the same class as Tri-X but it is still an option for your camera.

    I guess Lupus does not have a dev table, because they don' t produce any film. They should ask the actual producer and probably that costs...?

    Who died and made you the voice of pragmatism? C'mon it's the Internet, if we didn't complain what would be the point???

    I am kidding! I agree w everything you said! Choice of product allows for artistic-choice

    Bothered I am not - as you are - but it would be nice to know who made it or what type of re-branded film it might be, so we'll get a starting point for using & developing tests. That's all.
    This way - instead of shooting the film - we can discuss grain, best developers, bokeh, stand or shaken developing, push & pull, etc. even more over and over again on this fine forum - instead of shooting the film - (did I say that out loud again?)

    And yes, it IS nice to have options.
    BTW: it is also nice to know what factories are still producing film (regardless of brand names and distributors).
