    You can feel the difference. When they are wet, efke films have a soft,smooth, rubbery feel to them, and scratch easily. Forte has a tough matte feel and is much more scratch resistant. Efke films do not have a hardened supercoat.

    A few snippets of information gleaned from the Fotoimpex catalogue regarding Efke film:
    - do not overexpose and/or overdevelop the ISO 25 and 50 films
    - hardening fixer is recommended
    -Efke films are made according to old Adox film recipes.
    -the layer on which the emulsion is cast comes from Orwo.
    -development temperature is critical.

    Hope this helps a bit.
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Those on the Portfolio list will see what I think of "do not overdevelop".

    Efke 25 is my favorite film. I have been using it for about 1 year now in 120, and got some 4x5 over the summer. I didn't like it in Pyro to much, but love it in Rodinal @ 1:50.
    You guys in the postcard exchange, my first postcard "weeds" was shot on Efke 25 with no filter in Rodinal.
    Aggie, bring some empty film holders on Tuesday and I will bring a box of the Efke 25 4x5 you can load up and try out.

    I have been shooting EFKE films since the early 80's. In fact I still have around a 100 rolls that expired back in 1988 but it is deep frozen and works just great.

    My favorite is EFKE 25 (RB14) and I shoot it at an EI of 25 and develop in Rodinal 1:100 for 20 minutes at 68F. Magic combination.

    I also have RB17 and RB21 emulsions.

    My closest supplier is the Looking Glass in Berkley, CA
