Hi Mirko,

thank you very much for all your efforts and the promising news.
120 film converting and an improved Adotech II developer sounds good!

That is right.
But:
Agfa Copex Rapid, developed in the dedicated SPUR Modular UR New developer, is far superior to CMS 20 in
- speed (real ISO 40; CMS 20 has only real ISO 6)
- usability for handheld photography without problems
- tonality (even better than most conventional films)
- better characteristic curve with excellent shadow detail and much better highlight separation
- dynamic range (14 stops)
- real panchromatic sensitisation
- flexibility, Agfa Copex Rapid is even excellent in reversal processing with increased speed.

Right!
The problem is that photographers use these US developers like Pota, TD-3 or diluted standard developers, which doesn't work properly with the current microfilms.
It's a kind of rape of the films.
These old formulas from Photographers Formulary are completely outdated.
By far the best stuff today are the SPUR developers, which are designed for the current Agfa microfilms.
