    Unless there's been a huge breakthrough/improvement in emulsion technology, 120 APX 400 doesn't compare very favorably with Kodak TMax400(TMY-2).

    It depends on what one wants in their image. It's also nice to have choices. One day (soon?) the big yellow K will decide they don't want to sell TMY-2 anymore and we will be glad there's APX 400.

    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!
    I don't know about this new stuff, but APX400 in the old days was nothing like TMAX, which is why I loved it so

    Indeed. Re: The Future. Your guess is no better than mine but I'm really more involved with the final image than in how it's captured. I doubt I'll be bothering with film if/when it becomes an artisanal product. I suspect Kodak will be around for a bit.

    ok maybe they are different. Im more concerned with look of grain. T-type grain (refined at smaller level) and classic grain (more groove), also ability to push ISO. I have used old apx400 and apx100 and find them indeed different as you said. They are hard to push over also.

    Thank you Mirko.

    So, this batch is slower and foggier.

    How much cheaper will it be than the emulsion that will eventually be used, and what speed is it in the end? 200/24?

    VERY different indeed...APX400 is (was) ISO250 at best but the grain is superb in my opinion, especially with Rodinal.

    Might as well just pack up your stuff and go now then.

    WRT to APX400, it's an entirely different film than TMY. APX has always been like that and that's why people like it.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
