    I've used Lucky colour films, especially the Super New 100, and didn't find any flaws. It was my favourite film for muted, almost pastel colours. Lucky discontinued all colour films last year.

    Thanks for the suggestion of bulk loading 135. I have actually thought about it a year or so ago but I didn't follow up with it. Now might be a good time to do so. I'll do a search for which loader is most recommended (I forgot) again and pick one up.

    Erwin Puts described APX 100 as a classical acutance film and Delta 100, T-Max 100 and Acros as high tech films:

    Once I developed some APX 100 semi-stand in FX-2 and I agree,it can give edge effects more than the high tech films.

    I wonder if the new AGFA APX-100 and the new ADOX CHS-II 100 are the same exact film?

    The timing of their availabilities is certainly coincidental.

    No they are not. I think I stated earlier in this (or in another) thread that we do not manufacture the new AgfaPhoto APX.

    Or two competing films at the same ASA with not enough customers willing to move from Delta100, Tmax100, FP4+(125 close enough), FOMA100, Acros100, etc etc... however with the idea that the new ADOX stuff will come in all sorts of formats... if it comes in 4x5, 70mm, 120 and 127 formats... that would be a huge draw, if it came in 220 I might switch from ilford and fuji for the 100 range... but that's just me... (except night exposures... unless this film can match Acros100 on that... ). Especially if it's all reasonably and competitively priced.

    It doesn't have to be one or the other. Integrate the different mediums into the collection. For some it may also be a switch back to what they might have predominantly used before.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    As long as you're going as far as 70mm, 127 and 220 then why not shoot the moon and make millions of us older camera folks happy and run 620 too. There are tons of 630 cameras out there and I, for one, would buy 620. I've got some honey cameras in 620 that are fantastic. My Kodak Medalist will match any 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 camera made today. The Kodak Monitor 620, Kodak Reflex I & II, Kodak Duo, and the Chevron are just a few Kodak's. Plus, there are thousands of other 620 cameras out there. It cost no more to make 620 film than it does to make 120 and it always pissed me off that since Kodak created the "bastard" size they didn't keep a small stock available. Maybe that's the kind of thinking that got kodak into trouble in the first place? When Kodak stopped the 616/116/620 production I boycotted them and never bought a roll of B&W Kodak film for many years. Of course I must confess that I still continued to use Vericolor 160 for weddings. So I guess that makes me a hypocrite! JohnW
