    I went on the store and found the ISO 200 110 film that was there. I would place an order but with shipping, the order came to about $60 USD for on 4 rolls! I simply can't pay that for 110 film right now.

    Not really in a hurry to get it, so no thanks. I was just curious to see how much it might cost, etc.

    BTW, I know this elephant has kind of been hanging out in the corner, but Mirko, is APX 400 going to be the initial market test emulsion and then afterward are there plans for APX 100? I believe that most APX-heads want the 100 speed, however I'm still open to playing with either remanufactured emulsion. Thanks for the huge effort and dedication to getting this unique film back up on it's feet.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Clayne,

    we are making APX 400 now because there simply are no Agfa banktrupcy leftovers of this material. 80% of the market is still 35mm. With APX 100 beeing sold below 1,50 EUR / piece from infinite sources we canīt touch this film until this situation changes.

    But yes, there are plans to remanufacture APX 100

    Kind regards,

    Mirko

    We are talking about:

    -trimming 35mm pancakes to 32mm in ultra high precision
    -slitting 32mm in 2x16mm
    -apllying the unique 110 perforation
    -remanufacturing the cassette body, cover and spool
    -remanufacturing the backing paper, choping the backing paper, cutting out the edge so the film stripe gets caught after the last frame
    -spooling the backing paper together with the film into the feeding compartement
    -attaching the end of the backing paper to the spool
    -welding the casette shut
    -packing the product
    -labeling the product

    Not trivial but dooable.

    Yes colour, 200 ASA, B/W later.

    Kind regards,

    Mirko

    Is that all?

    Sometimes it's hard to imagine what amount of work goes into making a roll of film.

    Keep up the fabulous work, Mirko.

    Wow! That's quite a process. I believe I had read that the cassettes themselves are going to have to be assembled by hand...is that true? I really appreciate you guys over there at ADOX! You make some great products that others have dumped out the window. I don't want to sound pushy but what is the current projected date for this happening? What if you just used un-perforated 16mm film? Would you happen to know if this will be available in the US at Freestyle? Sorry for all of my questions but thanks so much for answering.

    I would love to buy the APX 400 in 126 Instamatic cartridges. I know it's a lot to wish for.

    Is it possible to offer 100ft bulk rolls of 35mm Non-Perforated? At least we can spool up our own.

    Thanks Adox !!

    Mirko, it is great that apx400 is being introduced! I guess this is similar to Tmax. How good is iso push ability up to 3200? (with D76 and rodinal)

    I was meaning to ask you about other alternative. I think CHS 100 is very interesting, how about produce iso 400 of this? Is it possible? It would be nice to have choice similar to Trix which offers easy iso push ability with look of typical grains.

    Anyway, Im excited for new things!
