Adox CHS overview

  • 1Description

Adox CHS 100 II Black and White Negative Film is an orthopanchromatically-sensitized traditional film exhibiting a classical grain structure and single-layer emulsion for wide tonal separation and extensive highlight control. It has a medium nominal sensitivity of ISO 100/21° and dual anti-halation layers to offer fine image sharpness with unobtrusive grain. Compared to modern emulsions, the two-part single-layer emulsion offers greater separation between tones while maintaining a wide overall exposure latitude. In addition to processing in standard black and white chemistry as a negative, this film can also be developed in a reversal process to yield black and white transparencies.

This item is one roll of 120 format film.

Adox CHS reviews

CHS 100 II Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the most dreamy films ever Having mostly shot with Kodak Tri-X for more than 10 years, I've finally tried this new film from Adox, Germany because I started to feel that American king of film was getting wimp compared with what it used to be. I usually don't see any reasonable points of shooting ISO 100 films instead of ISO 400 by sacrificing 2 stops exposure (I've tried FP4+, TMax and Across), especially with 120 format, however, this film has totally blown my mind. This film can draw beautiful highlight and shadow details with maintaining a great phenomenon of mid-tone. The structure of grain is so creamy but not too weak and you can control them easily with a type of developer. Massive Dev Chart is a good starting point of developing time and I've developed it so far with Kodak D76(1:1) and Rodinal(1:50); D76 gives it a dreamy look and Rodinal definitely gives more solid grain and sharper image with a bit more highlight. In normal light condition, I would shoot with ISO 100 and develop it normally. In contrasty situation, with ISO 50 and cut the development by 10-15%. In US, it is twice more expensive than other competitors and you should wonder if it's worth it. My experience is telling you that it's worth at least to try it and it will possibly be one of your cup of tea. I strongly hope B&H regularly stocks this at store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Mix Of Old Tech Emulsion On New Tech Base If you use the cameras you collect, this is for you. Wonderfull for red windows. The emulsion is perfect for the old lenses. A treat with the old pre war cameras.
