    Hi All,

    I am a fan of Agfa APX 100 roll film and use it occasionaly for portraits.

    I thought I would give APX 400 (120) a try this week. It is however a film I have never really used before.

    Anyone know the in's and out's of APX 400?

    Dev. suggestions?
    Speed?
    Best use?

    Thanks

    I've shot a lot of it in 120 format. I develop it in either HC 110 or Rodinal depending on the subject matter. To make my life easier I rate it at 400 and develop as per data sheet. So far the results have been very good. One thing I do recommend however is to get an ExpoDisk and make sure your meter is zeroed as per their directions. This way you will always be dealing with a standard and if any adjustments have to be made in your developing due to water etc. it will stay consistant. For N + and N- I use the usual % increase and decrease in development times.

    If you like it, buy lots of it because I'm not to confident Agfa will stick with the film market for very much longer.

    I have been using both APX 100 and APX 400 for a while and I like them both. I did some testing and found that with my developing methods it was better to rate the APX 400 at 200. I've used HC110 and the Ilford version of this (Ilfotec) with good results. I develop at the recommended time as if shot at 400.
    I recently picked up a couple of older Yashica TLR's (6x6) and have been using just APX 400 in them and I have been very happy with the results.
    I use it to shoot some landscape and old buildings.
