    replacement for rollei retro 100 aka apx 100

    So I am running short on my 100 ft roll of rollei retro and really love it but its no longer available through freestyle and I hate @#$y. So could kentmere 100 be a decent replacement? Its the "look" not the speed , grain or sharpness I am concerned with.
    No escaping it!

    Rollei RPX 100 (??) more or less the same as the Kentmere emulsion but also available in 120 roll film format and in 30,5m/100ft.
    My favorite store: http://www.fotohuisrovo.nl

    Just FYI if you can find any Tura 100 is supposedly APX 100. I found some bulk rolls on eBay a year or so ago.

    I believe there is something called Rollei RPX, and is the same or a similar emulsion to APX, but I haven't found a US source for that, I want to try it, but as of right now I can't get it without waiting 2 weeks for shipping.

    rollei retro 100 is still available in 35mm from macodirect.de I've ordered in the US from them and had no problems. doesnt look like any 100ft rolls but good deals on bulk cannisters. also they have the retro 100 tonal in 100ft rolls but I dont know how that differs.

    No. To my knowledge today nobody coats film which is similar to APX100.
    RPX are nice films (from what I've heard) but definitely not APX.

    So then it's just a "suitable replacement"?

    Since I have never used it and my experience with APX100 is limited to 3 rolls: I have no idea.
    "suitable replacement" is a phrase that means nothing to me. Suitable for what? Same ISO? Same size? Same technology (b&w negative)? Suitable for generating sales?

    Some people claim that Fomapan 100 has a similar look to APX 100.
