Thank you.
I'm not sure about the APX. I bought it in 2012 and it has a 2014 expiry date. It's probably the new stuff.
I really like it though.
I've got some of the old stuff (well Rollei Retro 100 actually) in the freezer and I've got a couple of rolls of the new stuff but I don't think I've shot any of it yet. Its all a bit confusing because for years we were told it was gone and we were using up old stock and now its back but not quite the same. I wonder if it will appear in 120 form again.

Actually, just done some reading and it seems that the new emulsion only went into production mid way through 2013 so your rolls and mine are the old stock. Pictures of the new boxes have "New Emulsion" printed on them and I understand that the development times are different from the old stock.

Really nice shot Colton. I love the texture of the sidewalk and the shadows thrown across it. Great tonality. Do you know what developer was used? Doesn't look like the usual APX100/Rodinal combo.

I can't develop myself so I send all my film to a lab for developing. I've always got good results so I never really worried about what developer the used, but lately I've been curious so I called and asked. They use a developer called Clayton (F76 Plus I think). I've never heard of it but it seems great. The only film I've had any issues with is TRI-X, which sometimes comes back seeming like it's overexposed or over developed.


Here's more APX.

So interesting this one. Looks like an older hotel with additions. Lovely sky and mountains, and nice quality to the film. I do not know this film...
