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.

    Do you have me on your mind ? Thank you for the thought, but I have two cans on ice and one currently in use. Sadly it is not cheap anymore, price went from $140 to $240 in the last 12 months.

    A 400 foot can of 5222 is cheaper than 4 of 100 foot cans of Trix bulk in the UK today.

    I have two 400 foot cans of 5222 in fridge and 100 foot in a Watson.

    I am up for 3 boxes if it flies. I like the film. It is a nice, low contrast film and is quite flexible in use. I think it would be very useful as a 4x5 sheet film.

    Ya, the first thought that came to my mind was "What kind of film did he use?"

    I was the one who originally approached Keith about having this happen, I'm glad to see it's taken off well
    Stone,

    I read about it on Facebook and thought I'd share with the apug folks to hopefully make that minimum order .

    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.

    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
