    Well explained, Mirko and yes based on the price I saw that was quoted it is very competitively priced. Best of luck with sales. We need companies to develop such products

    I think we should also add: ALL HAIL THE NEW SCALA!Which is excellent news.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    You still got Agfa Scala 200x http://www.fotoimpex.de/shop/filme-f...lide-film.html Happy New Year and thanks for trashing the thread I started. Next time I will remember where the kids hang out.

    Mirko, having just ordered a good number of rolls of 35mm, your last point leads me to hope for bulk 35mm and 16mm film, and there are others looking for 120 and larger sizes from what I have read in this thread. I hope sales of ADOX products are such that these other sizes come to fruition.

    ADOX SILVERMAX: Please share a D Log E curve.

    It would save a lot of writing if you would just share a D vs LogE curve.

    Yes, Thomas, it is the same.
    APX 100 and Scala 200X have the same spectral sensivity. That has never been a secret. Agfa has published the data, and all photographers who have used both films and compared them have seen it.
    Shoot the Kodak colour test chart with both films and you see immediately that the colour transfer to grey tones is identical.
    Not surprising as Scala 200X is based on the APX 100 emulsion.

    And I've done that recently in my lab with the Silvermax film and compared it to Scala and APX, and the spectral sensivity results of the three films are identical.
    My test results so far: The overall performance of Silvermax is very close to the APX 100 (good news for photographers who like APX 100), and close to Scala 200X, if the film is reversal processed.

    Best regards,

    Thanks, Henning.

    I was comparing APX100/Scala spectral sensitivity to that of the chart of the new film (post previous to mine). I knew that APX100 and Scala were identical from that perspective.

    That's old stock.

    Edit: boo-hoo. It actually made Mirko come out and explain what the real point of "silver rich" instead of letting the usual half-truths hang around.

    Boo-double-hoo.

    My bad, You are probably right.

    Henning might be able to share some more info as well.

    Realizing that you probably were not testing with Rodinal, let me ask for an educated guess about performance with Rodinal.

    Could I shoot it like APX 100 and develop in Rodinal and get "almost" like old times?

    Ok, so I'm a Luddite. Shoot me. After all, I still use film, so I must be crazy. (But look at the company I keep.)

    It is kind of an interesting prospect to think about to use one film for old school and new. TMax gives us 14 stops, but sometimes it's honest to the point of being brutal.

    This film might play both roles by changing developer. The specialized developer for long range and the old school developer for the archaic.

    I gotta get some.
