    APX 400



    As most of you probably know we are reintroducing a new and updated version of (...the film which once was known as...) APX 400 this year.

    It will be called ADOX PAN 400.

    We have a "First Coating" version in confectioning which will be sold at a special introductory price. This film differs slightly from the final product (not quite were we wanted it) but compared to currently fluctuating 5 year old Agfa Leverkusen film it is actually better.

    The final ADOX PAN 400 is due to be coated in July with an expected market introduction in Juli/August.
    ADOX PAN 400 will be released in 35m and (if nothing goes wrong now) 120.
    Sheetfilms will follow later when our confectioning line is installed in Bad Saarow.

    Buying the "First Coating" version helps us to finance the rest of the project.
    There is a thread in our house-forum where customers have tested the film and uploaded images.
    It can be found here: http://www.fotolaborforum.eu/index.php?showtopic=2259

    Hereīs the link to the ADOX PAN 400 website which contains more detailed informations:

    Best regards,

    Mirko

    Fantastic news Mirko. I really loved (and miss) the Agfa APX 100 & 400 emulsions - looking forward to getting my hands on some to try out.

    I'll second that!
    APX 100 was sorely missed, with APX 400 a close second.
    I work, mainly, with 120 .. so I'll be waiting - eagerly!

    I hope there are plans to send some ADOX film down to Australia, seeing the old AGFA is still available if one looks.

    Exiting news Mirko. Although i don't think i will be buying film for the 35 and 120 format it is great to see a new film enter the marked. I will eagerly await the introduction of Adox Pan 400 in sheet film.
    Keep up the good work.

    This is wonderful news.

    BIG QUESTION: the last version of APX 400 changed the film,
    so that Rodinal required 30 minutes of development instead of 11 !!!!!!!!!!!


    What is YOURS ???

    30 Minutes in Rodinal 1+25 ???

    Hmm I never heard this before.
    We use 10 Minutes at 20 deg. C for comparison tests but the final product (because it is higher in effective speed) might end up between 10 and 13 minutes.

    The First Coating comes best at about 11 Minutes.

    Are you sure your Rodinal is OK ?

    Best regards,

    Mirko

    Mirko,

    That's exciting news! I wish you all the luck with this project. Unfortunately I have switched to Kodak Tmax films; if I was still looking for my dream film I would have gone with your 400 film no doubt.

    (I'm pretty sure Cardwell uses Rodinal at 1+50, but don't hold me to that. )

    Thomas, why limit yourself to just a single line of films? Surely different films go better with different subjects. APX is classic, there's no reason not to buy a brick.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
