Various films in their boxes

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]

Black and White Films[edit]

  • ADOX CMS 20 II (In Production) The world's highest resolving film with a resolving power of up to 800 l/mm.
  • ADOX CHS 100 II (In Production) A classically sensitised medium speed emulsion that can be processed as a positive.
  • ADOX SilverMax (In Production) A traditional high-silver-content 100 ISO emulsion.
  • ADOX SCALA (In Production) A black and white negative film, designed to be processed as a positive. An alternative to the now-discontinued AGFA SCALA, from which it gets its name.

Colour Films[edit]

  • ADOX Color Implosion (Unsure if Actively In Production) An "experimental" film, designed to intentionally give you unpredictable results with skewed colours.

AGFA / AGFAPHOTO[edit]

Headquarters in Mortsel, Belgium. A spin-off company, AgfaPhoto, went bankrupt in 2005. The mother company, however, continues to produce films for aerial photography and these films are nowadays repackaged for consumer use by Rollei and Lomography. AgfaPhoto films were made by Ferrania.
