I have have used Neopan 400 for a couple of y ears in 35 and 120. I think I will stick with the 400, as I find it very flexible as far as exposure times, and the grain and other qualities are very good. Since the beginning of the year, I have experimented with Delta 100, Plus X, T max 100 (pretty good results), FP 4, and, of course Acros. Actually, all were good, but Neopan 400 does it best for me.

I love Neopan 400. The point I was making that if you want a slow film, I find nothing better than Acros. Nothing. I have tried them all. It's better than Pan-F, FP4, and Delta 100. Of course it's slower than FP4, but it is finer-grained, and Pan-F is slower still. I would use Acros and Neopan 400 for almost everything.

Hi all -

New to forums here...

Does anyone have any dev times for APX 25 in Rodinal - primarily at 1:50 and 1:100 dilutions? Didn't see anythng in the dev chart.

I've got about 75 rolls from Agfa's final batch in deep freeze and want to shoot through them on some upcoming projects.

And FWIW on the Fuji monochrome palette. Never liked Fuji b&w, but loved the Fuji chromes. I do mostly figure work and have not yet found better tonal ranges for nude skin than what I get with APX 100 & 400...

Thanks in advance!

Hi Bill,

There is full information about APX 25 in the Massive Dev Chart, but it is listed in the Unlisted Data section.

Although there are some discontinued films which are shown in the main chart, once a film has been out of general circulation for a few years, I routinely remove it and place it in the Discontinued Film area. Admittedly, it is not easy to find this information and I'll try to find a clearer way to present it.

If you want to see all the data for older films, then select "Unlisted Data" from the left-hand menu, and scroll down to the "Discontinued Film" listings. Or you can go directly to the APX 25 page using this link:

Thanks Jon - and thanks for the link.

I looked, but obviously missed it.

Cheers -
