Stone didn't develop the DXN carefully enough. This material in 35 mm can give grainless and very sharp results in 8x10 prints. Built in low contrast helps in keeping the highlights under control. Very flexible material. It is made to run in high speed cameras, it is just stronger, less scratch prone, with AH layer which looks like from Tmax. I would prefer to have it in 120 format, if the price could be kept sane.
It is cheap in 35mm cine cans they used to do Plus-x in cine as well.
If you might want some Id order today.
Double-X is a wonderful film! Responds well in HC-110 B, although rather grainy. I've started using Xtol (both stock and 1+1) with fantastic results (Exposing at ASA-250). I've signed up for a box of 50 from Keith! Cost 90$ which is a fair price point. When I had signed up the total was up to 6. Examples below from the 35mm stock.
I read about it on Facebook and thought I'd share with the apug folks to hopefully make that minimum order .
It's amazing how fast it spread, way faster than I even thought.
It seems either people love it and are totally excited by the idea, or have no idea what the film even is, and keep mistaking it for Super-XX which it isn't, lol! It's funny (although annoying) or they don't understand why anyone would bother cutting one film when there's other film available, (though NONE in 200 ASA) but it's obvious they haven't seen it perform, such a beautiful film
