"He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
At the art school where I work Apx 100 has been the staple film for medium & large format shooters the students have consistently preferred it to Fp4+ and kodak emulsions. Students seeking the ultimate image quality in medium format & 35mm would always turn to apx-25, nowdays they are learning to love Efke 25 but in 4x5" there is no film that really compares to Apx-100.
On behalf of a great number of students who are taking to large format B&W with renewed vigour I would like to put in a vote for apx 100 to be reinstated in 4x5" as well as asking for a firm committment to the continued production of apx 100 and 400 (another beautiful film) in rollfilm.
I would also like to request on my own behalf that Apx 100 become available again in 8x10" sheets. (ha ha ha ha)
