EDIT: I was developing this film at the same time as an HP5+. Since the dev. time for the HP5, was 8 minutes and I wanted to develop this one for 15 minutes, I opened up the tank, toke out the HP5 and put the Agfa back in for the rest of the time. Of course he was solarized in an uneven way.
He was exposed to light in the middle of the dev. process.
I forgot that “little” detail.
Fuji Klasse W
Agfa APX 400@1600 ISO
Adox APH 09
Agitated for the first 10 seconds and another 10 half time.
Yesterday I toke the Fuji Klasse with me on my way to work. I wanted to try out the snap mode. I do like the original Ricoh GR1s snap mode, it’s a great feature, and the Fuji Klasse also has a similar option.
I loaded the camera with Agfa APX 400 which is a film I have no experience with and pushed it to 1600. After browsing some foruns it was clear that pushing the Agfa was not a brilliant idea.
Some say it’s really a 200 ISO film and not the most suitable for this kind of thing. I managed to find a time for a 800 ISO push but I saw no sample images so I thought: Okay, it’s going to be a mess but how far will I be if I just double the time?
I must repeat this combination and I will do it tomorrow. The negatives came out dark. The whole film is brown but the most amazing is that parts of the negative turned into positive!?!
I got negative and positive parts on the same frame and in some situations there’s this kind of “solarization” too.
Maybe I did something wrong that I did not realize or maybe this is what Agfa APX 400 pushed to 1600 in Rodinal looks like.
Knowing my lame self I suspect that the first option is the right one.
