Hi all,

I have ordered 2 x 600m of agfa sound film (the ultra high contrast we discussed in a forum a while ago) and i wonder if someone would be interested in some of it very cheaply (for example, 7 euro for 30m without a spool or 10 euro with the spool). I could list it in ebay in if preferred. i thought about puting it in classifieds but i guess it's part of the discussion on the usage of high cons as it would be good to share the results of the experiment. Cheers

PS: Sorry if I bother anyone in writing this topic in the 16mm forum.

this is a clip with the kodak sound film:

That's some great looking stuff!

Did you alter processing at all, or is that exposed normal/processed normal?

that's not mine, and the film is using the kodak sound film stock. But i don't think the guy altered the processing. the high cons is a characteristic of sound recording film. i'll post my first results tonight as i developed the agfa film as reversal last night. It's soooooo beautiful.

I was actually surprised that it wasn't even more contrasty, like a kodalith or something. It looked great, do post your results!
