    And at the same time that is a reason why others stopped using the film.

"Long" is all I need to be a happy consumer of the new film!

    Clearly from a few earlier posts in this thread.

    I wanted to let Mirko know that not everyone sees this as a disadvantage while at the same time pointing out the potential benefit to different "others" who might not have recognized it.

    Of course. There are many facets to liking and disliking certain aspects of particular materials we use.

    I'm glad it works for you.

    What's even more interesting is the contrast curve the Rodinal gives with the 'new' Agfa APX 400. It shoulders off really early and stops developing density, as if the developer simply is unable to increase density and contrast beyond a certain point, no matter how long you develop it for.

    See attached picture snipped from the APX data sheet. The one with the Rodinal curve sloping off is the 400, and the other that has both Rodinal 1+25 and 1+50 is the 100.

    I've been following this with interest. I had good luck with APX100 but now prefer to use 400 speed films for shutter speed reasons.... But I like highly dilute Rodinal and develop my film to a somewhat high contrast index for contact printing. Was looking forward to another choice but if the new film has these old characteristics..... Guess I'll have to try a roll/sheet or two and see.

    Sheetfilms will take about 3 months longer because construction at the factory is going on in the hall which will be the sheetfilm confectioning later.
    Thanks for the update. I am looking forward to trying this film in 4x5 and 5x7.

    I can't wait! Love new (old) films and I've really been looking for a new 120 baseline film, so I look forward to diving in.

    Dave, why not WP too? In this post

    Mirko indicated it wouldn't take too many boxes for ADOX to cut special sizes.

    Hi Sal,

    I hope you are well.

    If I like it in the other sizes, I would surely be interested. Believe it or not, I never used the Agfa version, so I have no expectations regarding the Adox version, just interest.

    Any update on when the real stuff will be out? Is it defiantly going to be available in 110? I'm excited.

    The Pan 400 "first coating" will be out in about 2 weeks.
    However the first production of Pan 400 "final version" is currently delayed.
    We are facing unexpected scale up problems at this point.
    I might have more news next week.

    Best wishes,

    Mirko
