Hi Tim,

please allow me just to correct two things:

Well, the films are similar. Adox CMS 20 II is fresh production Agfa-Gevaert HDP microfilm. The former CMS 20 (=Spur Orthopan UR film) is from a former version of Agfa HDP 13.

Both Adox CMS 20 II 35mm and 120 which are sold now are from the fresh stock. Recommended developer:
Adotech II. This developer (made by Spur) is optimised for this fresh emulsion.

Best developer for Agfa Copex Rapid: Spur Modular UR New (with part A1 and part B for Agfa Copex Rapid).
It's the latest, improved version. Outstanding stuff.

Nano Edge production was stopped about two years ago.
Spur Modular UR New (with part A2 and B for Orthopan UR and Adox CMS 20) is the successor, improved version.

It is not so complicated as it looks. For you international buyers it is even quite easy.

If you want Adox CMS 20: All stuff Fotoimpex is selling now is the new stuff (fresh production). Go for it. Use Adotech II developer for it.
I don't know whether Freestyle has still stock of the old stuff. If you want to be on the safe side, buy directly at Fotoimpex.

If you want Agfa Copex Rapid: You can buy the film at
- www.macodirekt.de
- www.generalphoto.de
- www.fotoimpex.de (there it is labelled as Spur DSX film)
- www.spuersinn.de (there it is labelled as Spur DSX film)

Best developer for Agfa Copex Rapid (=Spur DSX):
Spur Modular UR New (with part A1 and part B)

(By the way: Part B is identical and can be used for Agfa Copex Rapid, Spur Orthopan and Adox CMS 20).

Cheers, Jan
