As for stand development, I gave up on that a long time ago. I think my scanner has been reset to a default resolution which looks less sharp, even online. I visit many times a week, for enlightment and enjoyment, and I am never disappointed. I’m going to write another post along the lines of Omar’s normal fare for the three prints featured here. In my opinion this is the most unique black and white film currently on the market. Keep postin’ Best regards Eddie. I had intended using Fomapan for the project but it must have the worst reciprocity failure of any film I’ve ever come across, meaning I’d be standing around for about 15 minutes per shot. I can’t wait for the next post and often check daily looking for an update.

Pulling a film is maybe a good idea if you live in California but in dreich and damp Scotland, where we still sacrifice sheep nightly in the hope the sun will shine the next day, a huge contrast range is normally not a problem. Your pics look great to me. I always keep track of my development on my page, have a look here for the information per film, or here for the ADOX specific information I obtained.
But when the occasional overcast day comes along in the middle of a roll, I step up to full speed for better contrast. I really appreciate your blog and postings and really look forward to each new entry. Be the first to review this item. Enter new zip code to refresh estimated delivery time. Back to the new CHS and it’s suitability as a general purpose, medium speed film. If I may I’d ask you how did you find printing the highlights out side the window in the second picture, did they come out easily or took a heavy burning procedure?.

I was a fan of the old Adox film but also a fan of its value for money.
I am, like many others, looking for a good replacement for APX With Amidol,a water bath approach enables printing to intermediate grades. White concrete is washed out in above image even with a bit of adjustment during scan. The emulsion is very soft and when wet, it can damage easily.
I quite adod a bit of grain but not an awful lot and I’d happily fklm this film for all my medium speed black and white work. If not actually downrate the film, it seems you might at least want to consistently err on the bright side of exposure when using Rodinal. Since the film is “retro” I think I might go all the way “back” and used Graded Gallerie with Amidol.
Any inights regarding fil film?
Fotohuis RoVoMay 28, Here’s an interior shot. Thanks for this review Bruce. Thank you Bruce for this promising review. I have already had some success using Rolleipan 25 with dilution H and also taming its contrast as well. I’m getting withdrawal symptoms I had intended using Fomapan for the project but it must have the worst reciprocity failure of any film I’ve ever come across, meaning Adkx be standing around for about 15 minutes per shot.

We’ve become so accustomed to seeing the results of pushed film including my own it’s easy to forget what photos used to look like. This article on the Adox CHS is fascinating. Hi Bruce Well, this post certainly got the comments running! Only to discover that really works on the frames shot in very high contrasty light while the rest of the frames looking just flat, grayish, with compressed midtones On the subject of the contact sheet, quite a few of the negs look thin but many were shot in low light situations where I just messed up the exposure and there are a couple of sunset-type shots with thin foregrounds.
Wonderful blog with so many excellent and thoughtful comments! Love the one looking down the stairwell, and the section from the vertical. The subject of these three prints was the common stairwell or close of an early s tenement building. I wish Adox had packaged CHS in size. I’m from sunny California and I do shoot at half cilm on sunny days. You must log in or sign up to reply here. Is there any information on when this emulsion will be available in and sheet film sizes?
I only shot a few rolls of the old CHS but the new film looks a little better in respect of grain. It would be interesting to see how the film does in the Acurol. Thanks for reviewing this film!
Keep up the good work. Maybe blurr because these Efke films are razor sharp One of the reasons people like this type of film. I cns the “old” version of this eilm was also Efke In my opinion this is the most unique black and white film currently on the market.

Looking forward to trying this in 5×7. I haven’t done any testing yet but I’d say it needs no more than about half a stop extra exposure at shutter speeds of up qrt a few seconds and maybe a stop approaching ten seconds.
But using HC you can have the risk of an S-curve log D with some films. Mike GammillMay 28, Discontinued Update Location close.
