    First look at the new Adox CHS 100 II - print and neg scans

    I've shot my first roll of the new stuff and written up my impressions, along with some sample pics. Bottom line? It's lovely stuff. I'm hoping to do a comparison test with Silvermax in the near future. Please check it out here:

    Thank you Bruce, nice review. Can you please comment on the polyester base. Is there any light-piping present? Is it any more difficult to load on the reels? Thanks!

    Thank you for the review seems like an interesting film

    Also do you know if Adox CHS 100 II is a product made by Foto Impex/Mirko/Adox or a relabeled film from some other manufacturer like Agfa-Gevaert or Ilford. The label Made in Germany is worthless as any product packaged in Germany and receiving added value in Germany can be labeled made in Germany despite being manufactured in China.

    That's a very useful review, thanks! I'm looking forward to getting my hands on some of the new film (and I think I still have some sheets of the old Efke 100, so I can try to do apples-to-apples comparisons). I'm also very glad to have been introduced to the word "dreich", which I don't think we have over here, but which I would have had a lot of use for when I lived in Oregon!

    Thanks, Miha. The film loaded OK onto my Paterson tank but there was a bit more resistance than normal. Not too bad, though. The only light piping was between two frames - see the "contact sheet", frames 50 and 52. I didn't see it anywhere else.

    Pleasure, Nathan. Sorry I can't suggest something for San Diego. We have ony one phrase over here for sun - "What the hell was that?"

    Hi Michael,

    Reciprocity characteristics look excellent. I haven't done any testing but I reckon this could be the next best thing to Acros. Maybe a half stop at 1 to a few seconds and a stop at ten seconds. Don't take my word for it, though, as I (stupidly) wasn't taking notes.

    Thanks...that sounds promising. I'd love to see the manufacturer's reciprocity information. Do you know if there's a data sheet? I found no information on the Adox website.
