    I remember a funny story years ago about Mercedes-Benz having trouble selling some of their models until they jacked the price up considerably. Then they couldn't keep them in stock, hehe..

    As I mentioned earlier in this thread, it isn't rebranded Cube 400c, but a very close relative of it. It has a clear base, and doesn't curl like Cube. I haven't used enough R³ yet to judge whether there are differences in image quality. So far my impression is that it behaves very much like Cube, but I'll keep an open mind.

    Best,
    Helen

    Helen is correct. It's Cube enhanced. The curling is less and they have put the anti halo on the emulsion side which in theory should make it a sharper film than cube. But it's roots are in traffic film just like Cube.

    Per a previous request, Cube in 35mm and 120 will be available Tuesday.

    Here are developing times we have tried:

    D-76 EI 200 - 11min
    D-76 EI 400 - 15min
    D-76 EI 800 - 21min
    Xtol 1:2 EI 400 - 30min
    Xtol 1:2 EI 1600 - 38min
    A49 EI 400 - 25min
    A49 EI 800 - 34min
    R09 1:20 EI400 - 18min

    These times are based on just a very few sample rolls we had. So your milage may vary.

    My observation on this film is that it's a 400 speed film that takes to overexposure very well. I find it difficult to believe that results at 1600 and higher will be any more exceptional than other films that are pushed into this range. Though I'd love to hear other comments on this.

    Hi,

    If that is the case (R3 beeing an enhanced Cube) I don't understand why Mahn/Maco keeps the Cube in their product portfolio. If R3 is a better Cube (less curl, clearbase, better lattitude,...) what would be the rationale (except $1) to choose Cube over R3 as an user?

    Don't get me wrong, I admire Mahn in how they manage to have and keep such portfolio alive and without loosing money on it.

    Is there a rationale in chosiig either of them? I haven't seen anything special in either of these films.

    If you had thousands of rolls of unsold Cube in your warehouse what would you do?

    I, too, am ready to make another 8x10 TMY purchase. What will your price be for a 50 sheet box of 8x10?
