ADOX[edit]

The ADOX name traces back to the oldest photographic film manufacturer in the world, started in 1860 in Germany. [1] ADOX CHS films are still made according to the recipes from the 1950s and are coated slowly on a historic dip and dunk machine, which limits production to only 10,000 films at a time. "ADOX CMS 20 is the highest resolving film in the world and can capture up to 800 l/mm in technical photography. Together with ADOTECH developer it achieves a full tonal separation and up to 300 l/mm, which still exceeds the resolution of all available lenses (except for scientific and NASA-space lenses)." [2]

ATO (Advanced Technical Ortho)[edit]

  • same emulsion as Maco Genius Film
  • clear base
  • suitable for reversal process

ATP (Advanced Technical Pan)[edit]

  • may be used as Kodak Technical Pan replacement
  • extended red sensitivity
  • clear base
  • suitable for reversal process

Retro Tonal[edit]

  • same emulsion as Maco PO100C
  • an orthopanchromatic ("RectePan") film
  • clear base
  • suitable for reversal process

Retro 80S[edit]

  • extended red sensitivity
  • clear base
  • suitable for reversal process

SuperPan[edit]

  • same emulsion as Agfa Aviphot Pan
  • ISO 200
  • extended red sensitivity
  • clear base
  • suitable for reversal process

Rollei Pan[edit]

  • ISO 25
  • clear base, well suited for B&W slides

Rollei Ortho[edit]

  • orthochromatic film with a clear base
  • spectral sensitivity 380 - 610 nm
  • resolving power of 330 lines/mm (with a fine-grain developer)
  • especially suited for digital scanning

RSD[edit]

  • same emulsion as Agfa Copex Slide Direct
  • a pre-fogged orthochromatic film specially for negative or slide duplication
  • exposure index (EI) in daylight around 0.2 (thus it has a DIN value of -6 !) = about EI 6 + 5 f stops (not many cameras will handle this correctly)
  • after a massive exposure will produce a positive in traditional B&W process, i.e. is NOT run through a reversal process; see also solarisation
  • contrast adjustment using different developers, i.e. lower contrast: for ex. Rodinal/Adonal (1:25 about 10 mins., 1:50 about 20 mins.) or higher contrast: any paper developer 1+4 about 5 mins.

Color negatives[edit]

DigiBase CN200[edit]

  • without a mask, very well suited for scanning
  • subdued colors and unusual effects in reversal process (E-6)

ScanFilm[edit]

  • same emulsion as Agfa Aviphot Color X400
  • without a mask, very well suited for scanning

Color slides[edit]

DigiBase CR200[edit]

  • same emulsion as Agfa RSX200

  • normal results in E-6 reversal process
  • specially designed for cross-processing in C-41

Gigabit[edit]

Gigabit Film[edit]

  • Type: Black and White
  • Speed: ISO 40, DIN 17°
  • Available formats: 35 mm
  • Granularity: Extremely Fine
  • Resolving power: Extremely High
  • History: said to be Agfa Copex micrography film, sold with special low-contrast developer to increase dynamic range
  • Primary usage: General black-and-white photography, with scanning in mind
  • General characteristics: PET base for better film flatness, strong contrast and low exposure tolerance, fine grain not much subject to grain aliasing in usual resolution scans
