Adox is one of the oldest photographic brands in the world, established in Germany in 1860 by Dr. Carl Schleussner - who worked on early wet-collodion plates and X-ray plates. The company started marketing their own cameras in the early 20th Century, and introduced a line of B&W films in 1952 that became renowned for their sharpness of resolution. A difficult end to the last century saw the brand change hands multiple times - and now Adox films are produced by Fotoimpex across manufacturing plants in Germany and Switzerland. Their products remain very high quality with a focus on emulsions that resolve incredible levels of detail and contrast.

The 36 Steps

Having used various Adox emulsions before, I was expecting something like old school (pre APX) Agfapan. The CHS 100 didn't disappoint and the results reminded me of classic B&W cinema , such as 'The Third Man' and 'The 39 Steps'.That old warhorse Rodinal may not be the finest grain developer but it produces sharp, well defined grain, that looks like it was an artistic decision rather than sloppy technique. The tones were rich and the blacks were black-perhaps the film might be better rated at ISO 80, but that's a matter of personal taste and how you want your work to look and feel. It could be very rewarding to experiment with tanning and staining developers, such as PMK Pyro or Pyrocat HD. I didn't experience any quality issues with the film, so I was very pleased on that front-overall I'd happily recommend CHS and can't wait to try it in 5x4, to see how it compares with some of my old favourites such as Fortepan 200.

I don't understand this film

As an experienced photography lab technician I still don't understand this film stock. It looks very similar to Agfa APX100, just with a smaller grain size, but about the same actual sensitivity (near 80ASA). It looks okay for portraits, works well with old good developers like Rodinal or HC110, but quality control could be better - pink dye remained visible even after proper fixing and developing times, cartridge is made of cheap plastic and had no DX marking (at least that version of the film I've tried in 2014). I really want to try it again as it has Agfa-style tonal balance and is made by well known brand.
3/5 for now, can't wait to give it a shot again.
