Agfa films are manufactured to meet professional photography. For this are made according to special standards, which guarantee high quality, continuity and reliability. APX 100 satisfies these high standards, ensuring above-average performance. The films are designed to meet a wide range of professional applications, the characteristics of which find application in specific areas of use.
APX 100 satisfies all these requirements: it offers excellent detail, even in the critical areas of shadow, sharpness is excellent and extremely fine grain. The reciprocity is improved and allows you to expose the film with time very short or very long.
High temperatures and high humidity can alter the characteristics of the photographic material. It is advisable to keep the film in its original packaging, as this protects them against humidity. Store the film in a refrigerator (temperature lower than +10 ° C / 50 ° F) or in a freezer (temperature lower than 0 ° C / 32 ° F) is an effective way to stabilize the properties of film for long time. Before shooting, wait until the film is at room temperature, after it has been removed from the refrigerator, to avoid the formation of the layer of condensation. Once a film has been exposed is advisable to keep the film in a cool, dry place. You have to develop the film as soon as possible after exposure.
It is a well-known fact that the results of development depend not only on the time, temperature and type of solution, but also on the process method used (tray, small tank, drum, large tank). To obtain reproducible results, the following instructions should be followed:
• For processing in small tanks, agitate (tilt) the tank continuously for the first minute, and then tilt every thirty seconds. Avoid developing times under three minutes.
• For processing in drums (rotary process), choose a speed greater than 30 rpm (changing the direction of rotation). Avoid developing times under three minutes.
The development times given below are guides only, and are based on an average contrast of γ = 0.65. Variations are possible, depending on the individual processing conditions.
