    You know that the barcode system is completely silly ? that does not mean anything else that the number printed on the cartridge. That do not prove anything regarding the emulsion.

    I never understood that silly thing

    Thanks for the code!

    The DX code tells you the factory as Part 1 of the code is assigned to specific manufacturers.

    Ricardo, you assume that each film has an primary coding. But this is not the case.

    Furthermore, Maco gave in the past contradictory information on specific films, even made up a datasheet.
    Why do you expect them now to hand out a cartridge that gives most truthful information?

    AgX:
    No, the DX code only points to the FACTORY where it is made. By its nature, each film has its own DX code. But, that doesn't mean it is different Emulsions.
    If the DX code pointed to a Harman made emulsion, we can assume it is a different film from anything else in the market as Harman doesn't use the same emulsion for different films.
    You can buy an actualised list of DX codes from I3A and find out whose manufacturer is assigned Part 1 of 189.

    Why do you expect them now to hand out a cartridge that gives most truthful information?
    Because they would be in breach of the DX code conventions. Remember that Part 1, i.e. the manufacture code is assigned by I3A.

    They broke the convention of honesty.

    Does it really matter whether this is a new film or an old film in new clothes? All that matters surely is whether it is a good film that we can use when we want a slow speed and fine grain. So far so good. It would be nice to get it in sheet sizes too, 4x5, 8x10 and 6[COLOR=#000000]½x8½ would be a fine start...

    I think it matters. I'd rather not spend good money on film that I know little about. Maybe it is a new emulsion. Maybe it's Efke 25. If that's the case, why bother as the pipleline will run dry shortly. If it's Pan-F, why should I pay an inflated price for the Rollei brand?

    Please, think twice before posting! How can it be EFKE, when the factory has been closed for over an year? And, how can it be PanF, when Harman will not use the same emulsion for other films?
    It is a new emulsion, and the fact the DX code is new only confirms it. Besides the expiry date is set for 4 years from now. It goes with the Harman normal life span for its emulsions of 4 to 5 years.
    And RegularRod already proved it a few pages back.

    Please, stop with rumours and other insinuations that are bore of ignorance, not facts.

    I suppose it COULD have been left over Efke 25, but at this point it clearly is not.

    It could be based on Pan F+ but now that user reports are in is also clearly different. So again, whatever it is seems new.

    It's easy to see if it was Efke 25. Just shoot a color chart. The film is orthopanchromatic, and has lowered red sensitivity. A side by side comparison with RPX 25 would quickly show the difference.
