    Or transformed and then cut?
    When the film is good and the price is right.. who cares where the film was made?

    Klopstock after rereading the original post by Mirko I believe you might have a point, the specs look a lot like Orwo UN54 ISO100 negative and reversal, Agfa Formula Orwo = Agfa, Modified APX is marketing speak adding more silver or another silver concentration has a huge impact on the emulsion and makes it a different film.
    "Silvermax will be available only from ADOX/Fotoimpex" means they are the only one selling it as Silvermax nothing more.

    But maybe I am wrong and even if it is UN54 that wouldn't necesseraly be a bad thing.

    So if it is an already known film, do we know how that film responds to ordinary developers instead of special ones?

    D76? Rodinol? Xtol?

    I'll eat my hat if is responds any worse to regular developers than Efke PL100, with its old school emulsion.

    Wish they hadn't told us about it until they had some for sale. The suspense is too much!

    In the german forum of Fotoimpex they claim they made the emulsion on their own and that it is only available from them, not with other labels:

    As they are not Maco, I tend to believe that.
    The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands smell like fixing bath.

    And you trust every person who is not MACO? Aren't you naive?

    Fotokemika has just announced the ceasing of their production, and a few days later, a new film is announced to replace the ISO 100 !

    Do you know how a film is made, and how long maturation is?

    Please, think twice !

    Actually they stated that they were working on this film since half a year.

    Always a good advice. Do you follow it?

    I prefer to draw my conclusions after the film is available. ADOX announced to have samples at Photokina and it will not take too long until the first people have compared it to KB100, UN54, APX100, Kentmere 100.

    I went with the Rollei Retro 80s (Agfa) for ~100 iso shots, bought 3x17 meters and have shot the first rolls @160 this weekend, will be interesting to see how it works with HC-110 (Inspired by Aureliens tests).

    But it will for sure be interesting to try this new film, if it comes in bulk rolls that is...
