A Few More Adox Silvermax Samples

(Five images). This time in better lighting conditions! The previous shots were all taken on overcast days, so a bright  weekend and a few hours by the coast was the obvious excuse to burn off another roll. These are all straight off the scanner using the Agfa APX100 film profile, which after some messing around seems the best one. All the shots are from one roll, shot at box speed using an Olympus OM2N and developed in Ilford ID11 stock.

First one and a dynamic range challenge which the film has coped with very nicely. Zuiko 28mm lens.

This larger portrait oriented shot shows how little grain there is and how well this film/developer combination works. Zuiko 85mm lens.

This is the best of the lot – shot on a Vivitar 17mm lens, the range of tones for a bright day is impressive.

Next – a  ‘torture test’ – deep shadow and bright sky, but excellent result again.

This was a bit out of the DR range of any film or non-HDR digital image – the sky a few stops past rendering any detail, but the rest is fine.

The bright light shots from this film confirm the claims Adox make – the extra silver content seems to be making a real difference. I’m really impressed – and now need some more rolls….

The seaside shots at Kimmeridge Bay, and the church is in Kingston nearby in case anyone’s interested (Dorset UK).

Thanks for looking – hope you find this useful!

  1. I have so much to get through before I can justify placing an order for this stuff. It looks so good… Whenever I get to my wholesaler their stock is earmarked for someone else so I can’t even impulse buy it…

  2. Amazing – they’re my wholesaler – Must be you who has the film on order when I’m there… I’m there tomorrow making use of their lab – If they have unreserved stock I shall buy it…
