New: ADOX CHS 100 II

Discussion in 'Black and White' started by hoshisato, Feb 10, 2013.

  1. I haven't seen any mention of it here, but I just noticed on the webpages that ADOX will introduce a replacement for the fabulous ADOX CHS 100 ART as from June 2013:
  2. If it were up to me they will follow up with an ADOX CHS 25 II and an ADOX IR 820, but that is just me writing down my 2013 Christmas list already in February (still, keeping my fingers crossed)
  3. It will be important to see what type of distribution will be available in Canada and the United States and which local stores will sell which products. The information itself is very positive, for the 100 ISO film and for products like the MC 110 paper.
  4. I will do some checking but I am pretty sure I know who is making the film for this new ADOX release.
  5. That would be great. I loved the 25 and 100 in 4x5, but I hate using fikms that are one hit wonders. It takes awhile to fully
    learn how they work and what they can do. I also wish they would make the emulsion so it didn't require hardner in the
  6. Look for 35mm only for now.. Machines to cut themfor maybe larger formats on the way.... but hold on.. only moving with the money that is around at the moment. Buy the film help the future.
  7. The ISO 100 film has too many better competitors, I think. They should concentrate on the 25-50 range. I don't see myself
    giving up Acros anytime soon.
  8. There are not many traditional-grain 100 ASA Black and White films left. Especially in 120 where I think it's down to Fomapan and FP4+. -- oh, and Shanghai, I guess
    I welcome the new ADOX.
  9. There's Foma, Fuji Neopan SS, Ilford Fp4+, Kentmere, Shanghai, Lucky, Rollei Retro, Rollei RPX........... Any others?
    Any of the above overlap ( same film, different name)?

    I'll take a CCG film every time -- ANY CCG film. Tmax 100, Acros, and Delta 100 are all superior to any of the films listed
    above, in my opinion. At least three of the K grain films above ( Ilford, Fuji, and Foma) are superior to Efke/Adox. But,
    since it costs me nothing to have another option, I too welcome a new film, of any kind.
  10. Jay, where can I get some Fuji Neopan SS in 120? I would like to order today. Thanks.
