Hi all I have been searching the net for Adox CMS 20 to see if I should work with it for Landscapes. I decided to write this to compile information from user experiences and knowledge to let myself and others know this film's true realistic possibilities and constraints.
Adox site suggests insanely high resolving power of “500 megapixel” / printable of 2.5m diagonal that’s 1.38 * 2.07 meters or 54 by 81 inches ! (Very rough approximates…) IT pretty amazing if this is true.. with 300K+ pixel per inch…
PS: I may have made some error anyone who knows better please correct me.
It is clear to be able to print this big…. It must be inkjet prints print and we would need a scanner….
SO the limits of Adox CMS should be in the scanning which I now ask
How big can a drum-scanned Adox CMS Print? For those once in a life time pictures or major exhibitions… ?
Realistically what can an average photographer actually print? Suppose a V700, Leica Lenses ASPH, Zeiss ZMs,
The next question is… what alternatives are, given the same weight constraints
So the question is which would be better in terms of resolution?
M7+ Adox or M9 or Nex 7 + RF lenses?
6X9 Fuji RF or D800E with Zeiss primes?
Adox CMS 20 is actually real iso of 6
Can get better quality than 6x9 (at what print size and scanning is unknown) on “normal” iso 100films.
Erwin Puts suggests : Adox cms with the v2 developer is better than the M9 http://www.imx.nl/photo/Film/page169/page169.html
