According to knowledgeable people on this site, that's the same film as Kentmere 100, just more expensive. Kentmere 100 is going for $5 on Film Photography Project.

Thanks for reminding me to check my old stash of film. I have ONE roll of APX 25 with a date of 07/2001. Time to see if it's any good.

To be honest, if, if, I would have genuine AGFA film, I would feel lucky and treasure it.
But you are right to look for it and I wish you all the luck...

BTW, Aviphot is indeed genuine AGFA-Gevaert film (made in Mortsel) but not the same as the famous AGFAPAN film.

My understanding is that Kentmere 100 is a version of FP4 if not the same

FP4 having quite a bit more contrast would be the most striking difference.

RPX in 120 was claimed to be an APX 100 equivalent. My experience with it was that the emulsion was similar but that base was much more curly when dry. It's almost as if they had slit the same material for APX 100 for 35mm large enough to make 120 instead.

That is absolutely not true. Those two emulsions are as different as they could possibly be. And yes - I speak from personal experience.

Sadly I will never know as I am in the process of moving into a condominium and the darkroom is a victim.

Agfapan APX 100 in 120 is not Kentmere 100 in 120.

Agfapan APX Agfaphoto APX

I think the Agfaphoto products are made by Hans O. Mahn GmbH & Co, but I am not sure...

The agfaphoto is made in the Uk.
I thought rollei was repackaged agfa aviphot, is that strictly the ones labeled as centered? I know that's a different thread.
The rpx is kentmere?

Knowledgeable people will know that this this Kentmere 100 film is sold as Agfaphoto APX100, Agfa Agfapan APX100 is another film, made by Agfa in Leverkusen.

Not sure where you are based, but I'm guessing this is what you're after - the original, not the pretender.

Happy to be an intermediary if they won't post (assuming you aren't in Australia.)

I have some old "real" Agfa APX 100 I'd be happy to shift. I'd have to dig it out of the freezer, but I should have 5-10 rolls. Expiration is somewhere in 2006 - 2010 as far as I recall. I've never actually checked, but I've heard if said the Adox Silvermax films were the same recipe. If you want fresher (or fresh-ish) film maybe look for some Silvermax?

Silvermax was never made in 120. As far as I know Silvermax was made with ingredients that were left over from the Agfa insolvency, but not that it was exact the same.

I've also heard that a lot of APX100 was made after bankruptcy, because it was cheaper to sell this films at very low prices rather than discarding all the ingredients. Combined with the previous point, I think only one or two components in Silvermax were the same as Agfapan APX100, not all.
