    According to the Fotoimpex site they use the postal service, so I was hoping it would be somewhat reasonable. To post a box of 4x5 film from Australia to Germany would be $18, whereas 29 euro is about $42 AUD. If Freestyle have a reasonable price per box I should be able to get it sent FIMS for about $18 so I'll wait for that.

    $18 will be unregistered for sure. Once you get all the right stickers on there, it would be over $30 I think.

    I certainly plan to wait until Freestyle gets it in and then we'll probably do a group-buy to Adelaide.

    Here's a link to the table in Howard Bond's article. This was the old version of TMax 400 (TMY), before it became TMY-2, but from what I understand, reciprocity between the two is virtually identical.

    http://phototech.pairserver.com/wp-c...4/recipro6.jpg

    At 2 minutes metered, TMY-2 needs 4 minutes - 1 stop.
    At 4 minutes metered, TMY-2 needs 9 minutes - 1.very little stops.

    Very low slope of the reciprocity failure curve, for sure, and the two extra stops compared to Acros are nice to have, for sure.
    Last week I shot some night scenes, and Bond's data was right on the money.

    My take here is just to complement your review with my own data for the sheet film version, in this case 4x5. This is densitometry (or sensitometry) data for my specific developing procedure (PyrocatHD 1.5:1:260), but it might be useful for someone else, specially because I include a short reciprocity test.
    So, in one of the figures you will see how the gradient changes for different durations of my developing: 12 min, 24 min, 36 min and 48 min. In another figure how the gradient changes for the same exposure but using different exposure times: 0.3 s, 2.4 s and 9.6 s, and developing time: 36 min. As you can see at least until 9.6 s there is no significant reciprocity failure - the gradient is essentially the same. I wanted to make further tests with longer exposures but have been under heavy workload...maybe next week.
    I don't like to compare density curves from different films but for a reference I can say that for the same developing conditions (36 min) the gradient of Adox CHS100II is lower than that of Fomapan 100, but not by a lot (0.58 vs. 0.64). This means that Adox is slightly less contrasty than Fomapan.
    Included is also a photograph I have taken with this sheet film and developed for 36 min. While there is some sky in the photo it really is very small and dark since I used an orange filter and thus cannot comment on its spectral response. Arguably it is one its greates strengths so I am curious to try portraits and open landscapes. This is a scanned negative, as I haven't had the time to print it, but I have not processed it digitally.
    I must say I enjoy this film a lot. Kudos to Adox!

    Hi Raul,

    Glad you've enjoyed my website and I hope you keep coming back. Your reciprocity test is very interesting. Wish I could do this technical stuff! I'm going to shoot some landscapes with the new CHS to see how its spectral response compares with Silvermax. I think Mirko of Adox would agree with you that this could well be one of the best reasons for using it.

    For other contributors wondering about availability, Adox CHS 100 II can be bought in the UK from Ag Photographic in 35mm, 5x4 and 10x8. Not sure about elsewhere.

    Just as a cross reference, another thread exists for this film here...

    http://www.largeformatphotography.in...d.php?t=107684

    Figured I would connect both for the heck of it, different info on both.

    Thanks for that. I've got some 5x4 CHS 100 II as well so your link was well timed!

    So did you read my comment/request to try pushing it to 400 in Rodinal?

    I really want to see if I'm right about if having a sort of Neopan 400 look when pushed... Even just 1 sheet? Lol

    =anyone here used the new Adox 100?? I have done some basic tests with the film. sorry that I' m too lame to post some pix but heck everyone needs to do their own testing. the film has incredible tonality. seems to have no defects that I can see. prints quite beautifully. downside is the the price. they are really whamming it to us at $50+- per box for 25 sheets. I'm going use up my current stash of film first before I can support this. I still feel that TMY is THE best overall film ever made and will use it until it's not available anymore. for the rest of you out there what are you waiting for..go use the film!!
    best, peter

    Because:
    1. It isn't made by Fotokemica / Efke

    2. It is a higher quality film with much better controls in place

    3. It is made in Germany and so incurs higher costs than Type I which was made in Croatia

    4. R&D has to be paid for a film that only took a bit more than year from concept to production

    5. And it is probably produced in smaller batches due to the market shrinking.

    Nikon F4, F4S, F401S, F601, F801, F801S, F50, F55, F60, F65, F70, F75, F80, F90, F90X, EL2, FE, FM, FG, FG-20, EM
