Has anyone else experienced problems with Adox Pan-X Reverso?
It is a 100 daylight stock, but appears to be notched as 64D/100T.
This is very strange, as it renders the film useless in some super 8 cameras.
I was shooting some in my Nizo 156 macro - a great travel camera.
I realised after I'd shot the roll that the cart was pushing down the one and only notch sensing pin on the camera, meaning that the film was treated as 40ASA. Just over one f-stop overexposed.
Now, the Nizo does 100D brilliantly, if the cart is notched as 100D that is!
I had to cut a new notch with some pliers - oh and here's a tip be careful doing this as the GK film cart (which the Adox is loaded in) comes apart real easy! I nearly pulled one apart just taking off a piece from the notch.
This never happened with Kodak carts!
I would like to shoot Adox in my Canon AF 514 XL-S too, but I think I will have the same problem there. Another camera that does 100D brilliantly, but not if it is notched as 64D/100T....
ADOX Pan-X Reverso notched 64D/100T?
