    The films were coated by Agfa,and the 120-rolls PACKED in Croatia.

    KB = Kleinbild (small format), and not an emulsion.

    Thanks for that, but when I said KB I meant as in EFKE KB25 etc.

    I guessed that. "KB" is just an abbreviation of "Kleinbild", so Ilfords and Kodaks 135-films are also KB-films.

    "KB = Kleinbild (small format)"

    Actually "small picture" if you want to translate literally.

    I've been experimenting with APX 100 and Rodinal. This combination seems to work well together as I generally like how APX turns out. However, I'm thinking the recommended Agfa development time is a little too long. The negatives seem overdeveloped and there's significant grain (which isn't a surprise). Although I'm expecting some grain, I believe the grain can be a little less pronounced than the results I'm seeing.

    I'm using a 1:50 dilution ratio and developing for 17 minutes at EI 100. Initial agitation is for 30 seconds and 5 seconds every half minute. Can anyone give me their preferred Rodinal dilution and development technique, especially if it involves APX 100. Thanks in advance!
    It depends on the expiration date. The old batch (from 1995 I think) is quite different than the 2010 batch (expiration date). The old batch required more time.

    I'm currently using the 2010 batch at EI 80; Rodinal 1:50 for 10 minutes. Works good for me.

    Yes, it seems 10 minutes is appropriate for this film at the dilution you are using. It has worked well enough for me.

    True. "Bild" is also a swedish word.

    KB = Kleinbild = Small picture, (Small format).

    R = Rollfilm = Roll film.

    PL = Planfilm = Flat film (Sheet film).

    Thanks, It's SO hard to make a decent looking result.
    Do you know the building? ever been to Philips cameras?
    Where in south Norfolk are you, I lived near Poringland for a few years.
    I guess you may have come to my Lab (Coes in Mountergate) I worked there (and was a partner) for many years.
