The sharpest, most fine grained and highest resolving image recording system in the world.
Perfectly matched for each other: ADOX CMS 20 film plus ADOTECH III developer.
This film cannot be developed in regular developers !
No other film is sharper, no other film is more finegrained, no other film resolves more lines per mm (up to 800 l /mm).
If used in pictorial photography the film achieves 20 ASA of usable speed in ADOTECH III developer. If used for high contrast purposes the usable speed increases to 80 ASA. If developed in non dedicated low contrast developers (HC 110, cafenol etc) it can be exposed at 3-6 ASA.
However we do not recommend using a different developer and we cannot guarantee for the results.
The film developer combination CMS 20 plus ADOTECH has been brought to perfection in years of research.
The film achieves grain free enlargements of up to 2,5 meters diagonally. This equals mathematical about 500 Megapixels. 12 Megapixel, which is today's standard in high end digital cameras equals 2,4% of 500 Megapixel. This just as a little comparison on the side....
The special monodisperse ultra high resolution emulsion of the film makes it possible.
The AHU anti halation layer in between emulsion and base material guarantees sharpness yet preventing any halation effect.
ADOTECH developer brings perfect halftones and increases the speed to 20 ASA and creates images no one would possibly believe to have been made with a 35mm camera.
ADOX CMS 20 has an orthopanchromatic sensitization which differentiates perfectly between colors. The CMS „sees it all“. No green filter is necessary in portrait photography.
The film´s base is totally transparent making it theoretically possible to reverse it and use it as an ultrahighresolution slide film with extreme projecting possibilities.
In order to do so you need to combine a reversal process with adotech as a first developer.
Once you shot this film you never want to use anything with less capabilities unless you have too.
