    See page 19 for film.

    Seems strange I thought the decline of MF film is slower than it is on 35mm.

    I think that the bulk of MF is mostly used by advertising/fashion/magazine/wedding/etc pros and most of them seem to have switched to digital. Fine art and amateur use is (or was) probably a small percentage. I could be wrong though - I though B&W would not be hit so hard by digital because I didn't think the pros used much of it... Ho hum...

    Cheers, Bob.

    I gave up on Agfa when they stopped 4x5. I need the same film across all formats.

    I sold the last box to a man in Florida who was happy to get it. I had it frozen since bringing it home and it was still in date by a year or two.

    Rodinal can be replaced with R09 from J and C. It is the original formula. It will look like black ink, but works fine. Dilute 50% more than Rodinal for similar effects and retest time.

    Most rollfilms such as APX-100 sold out. Even I moved up to a years supply of APX-100 and APX-400-New into my fridge. They still have some stocks of 35mm as the demand did not go nuts.

    Anyone heard of AGFA SILVERTONE ?

    www.henrys.com has this film and in the description it says it replaces APX films. Does anybody have any info on this stuff?

    I have seen this stuff on eBay and a few other places for a few years now. According to the Massive Dev Chart it is the same stuff as APX. I believed that it was some sort of relabeled APX, not a replacement. I am not finding stuff on the web right now. Who knows, but it sounds to me like Henry's is getting goofy.
