    That's right, you get that if you develop Agfa Copex Rapid in its dedicated developer Spur Modular UR New. I can confirm this from my intensive tests and years of practical shooting with this film and other films in this range.
    It and its 'brother' Adox CMS 20 II (Agfa-Gevaert HDP) is outstanding material in combination with their dedicated developers.

    Getting the 14 stops range (or even more) is, as others here have already said, possible with several films. It is more the question of the right film - developer combination. Use a developer which delivers a straight linear curve, like DD-X for example, and you will get that range.

    Well, not its brother, both films are quite different. Silvermax is similar to Agfa APX 100 (which is good news in my opinion; APX 100 being one of the finest emulsions with classic cubic crystal structure).

    Bob, the Scala 200X emulsion is based on the APX 100 emulsion. The spectral sensivity is absolutely identical.
    Besides the clear base of Scala 200X Agfa has also modified the emulsion a little bit for best performance in the Scala reversal process.

    I thought so .. I was told this by a friend in Agfa years ago, I also used Scala to make contact dupes when making enlarged negs for pt pd. Worked very well.
    I have always liked this film.

    Bob, then you will probably like Silvermax, too (by the way, Scala 200X is still available, e.g. at Fotoimpex).

    Also "some" people scan today nd the chips can capture this range. The film is especially well suited for scanning due to it´s clear base.
    And last but not least, as mentioned above, if developed to a transparency, in the projection you can see it all.

    Maybe that's what you should explain this on your product page, instead of capitalizing on the "14 zones/silver rich" which taps into hobbyists' insecurities.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Thanks Mirko.

    Can you provide any guidance about when the new 400 ASA film might be available- especially in 8x10 sheets?

    The film is currently in the test phase here in my lab. First results look good. The spectral sensivity of this film is identical to the Agfa APX 100.

    That's really interesting. Thanks. I am looking forward to all that ADOX seems to be doing in the days that others seem to be looking to walk away from analog! Thank you ADOX!

    On the Adox Website:

    +++ PAN 400 is ready for production but due to the sudden changes at Fotokemika who manufactured the CHS line of films for us we had to prioritize and decided to invest in the remanufacturing of a 100 ASA material at first+++

    Thanks. I hadn't visited the web site recently.
