    However, if a manager from Maco confessed that they were the same films, please provide us with a link so that we can read it ourselves. Also, if I'm not misunderstanding you, that statement only concerned the new APX and the (nowadays) old RPX, and not RPX's relation to Kentmere?

    I don't think so. As I said, Kentmere is one of the possibilities. My money is rather on Efke 25.
    Kentmere/Ilford Harman will not produce brandnew emulsions for other companies, let alone for a company notorious for its rebranding, relabelling and its confusing market policies.

    Efke 25?
    The factory producing Efke has been shut over a year now ...

    What evidence do you have for those (contradictory) statements about Harman?

    My primary interest in this film is as a replacement for my Efke 25. I will do some testing against my current stock of Efke R25 and I also have a bit of Pan F 50 lying about so that is possible.

    I'll develop this with D76 first since that is my primary developer, but if any of you have any suggestions I am certainly open. I also have some HC110, Rodinal, DDX and Diafine in the house right now. I really have no plans to pick up any other developers right now so that is the selection.

    Although I would love to try this out in the P67 I won't be able to do that this time. I will be using the P645Nii since it is a very reliable camera and gives me more frames to play with. I also have a pretty decent selection of lenses for this camera.

    I am not very experienced in film testing so any suggestions on how best to go about this is certainly appreciated.

    I will be very surprised if this makes it to me very quickly so it is not likely that I will be able to do anything with it until after the Holiday Season.

    I'll be trying it out in Xtol and Rodinal. Maybe something lower contrast if necessary.

    I've only got 1 roll of Rollei Pan 25.. so I wont be making comparisons, I'll be saving that for landscapes.

    Yes they are. RPX 400 is a batch of film, which someone ordered form Harmann. It is based on Kentmere 400, but the recipe was modified. The contract failed and the film left over.
    The bad side: It exists only this single batcht. If it is sold out, we never get it again.

    Harman do contract emulsion mixing and coating for anyone who comes to them with specifications of their own and the money to buy the results.

    They have stated many times on this forum that they will not re-brand any of the films that they make and sell - either under the Ilford name or the Kentmere name.

    I suppose that explains the different emulsion numbers on different batches of RPX 400 over time.
