Again thanks for the review. This sort of thing can be a problem with some emulsions coated onto a clear PET base but Adox say the new film has an “optimised backside coating to fully prevent light piping”. Some people are using a hardener during processing. I’ve always rated these films at iso 25 due to the contrasty sun hear in LA. Update Unrecognized Zip Code. Your name or email address: I’ve got a soft spot for Adox as the brand’s trade mark brings back a lot of memories. However, on one frame a plus two-stop bracketed exposure led to window light bleeding beyond the confines of the 35mm frame and actually encroaching on an adjacent frame.
I agree with your reasoning about the halved exposure index, been there done that Too many problems, not enough consistency. Still, it’s there and you can see it in frames 50 and 52 on this pic below which is a “contact sheet” actually a D shot of the negatives against a computer monitor. I just tried Rodinal for the first time PanF50, diluted 1: Do not pull or push this film, it will disappoint you. This article on the Adox CHS is fascinating. On the subject of the contact sheet, quite a few of the negs look thin but many were shot in low light situations where I just messed up the exposure and there are a couple of sunset-type shots with thin foregrounds.
Jon, I’ll see if I can develop a roll in Acurol.
Posted about it here: Thanks for all the comments guys. Back to the new CHS and it’s suitability as a general filmm, medium speed film.

I really liked Efke in Neofin Blue – just ran across some prints from the last time I tried that combo. This article on the Adox CHS is chw. It would be interesting to see how the film does in the Acurol. Again thanks for the review.
Recipes & dev times using Film Adox/Efke CHS ART 25
Grain is a very personal thing and while some people like it by the shovel-load, others will take it drip fed from a pipette. I quite like a bit of grain but not an awful lot and I’d happily use this film for all my medium speed black and white work.
On the subject of the contact sheet, quite a few of the negs look thin but many were shot in low light situations where I just messed up the exposure and there are a couple of sunset-type shots with thin foregrounds. I ados appreciate your blog and postings and really look forward to each new entry.
Hopefully the new CHS film is it. My late dad used to shoot Cgs slides vilm the s and there are a few of me when no more than a toddler that I’ll keep in reserve with the threat of publication ados readers don’t start leaving comments again!
This item is one exposure roll of 35mm film. You’ll need to try it yourself to see if it fits the bill. I’m from sunny California and I do shoot at half speed on sunny days. I’ve always rated these films at iso 25 due to the contrasty sun hear in LA. I don’t have much of this film on hand so I’m not too concerned about sacrificing a roll.
However, given the available grades of Gallerie I would certainly prefer negatives that are either “normal” or a wee bit to the thin side.
Compared to modern emulsions, the two-part single-layer emulsion offers greater separation between tones while maintaining a wide overall exposure latitude. Write a review syqbfbcxcdvwdtusztfsadbzqeuzqvy. You must log in or sign up to reply here.
ADOX | Discontinued: CHS 25
I always keep track of my development on my page, have a look here for the information per film, or here for the ADOX specific information I obtained. Instead of going for a new CHS 25 Art preferably in sheet sizes as well as rolls and facing no competition at all, they are now trying to compete against very good films and with not even a price advantage to help them.
Shadow detail is important and highlights will have to be somewhat controlled. Looking forward to trying this in 5×7. Rilm a film is maybe a good idea if you live in California but in dreich and damp Scotland, where we still sacrifice sheep nightly in the hope the sun will shine the next day, a huge contrast range is normally not a problem.
We’ve become so accustomed to seeing the results of pushed film including my own it’s easy to forget what photos used to look like. The most beautiful black and white film I’ve shot.
I’ll gladly leave a comment Bruce. As far as I can see from the scan the grain is nice and not intrusive, I like a tiny bit of grain because I find it makes the print to look sharper, I know it’s just an impression but my eyes are more satisfied: I can’t wait for the next post and often check daily looking for an update.
Keep postin’ Best regards Eddie. Maybe blurr because these Efke films are razor sharp One of the reasons people like this type of film. I loved the old CHS films so I’m looking forward to giving this stuff a go.
