My first 2 rolls of Adox Silvermax
I have just developed my first 2 rolls of Adox Silvermax 100 using Silvermax developer. Initial impressions are it really is a lovely contrasty wide tonal range film, I'll try and post some scans. Silvermax really suites bright direct light and in comparison to Ilford Delta 400 which I process myself, the film is thin and curly.
I followed the Silvermax instructions for agitation, being the Afa method of agitation for the first minute then one TILT every 30 seconds. I'm not sure what this precisely means so the initial agitation was inversion and the tilt was one inversion. Can anyone explain the Agfa method more precisely to me?
After dev, I used stop bath and fixed for 6 minutes with inversions every minute. Negs seem pretty good, maybe slightly thin.
