Agfa Copex Rapid / Spur DSX ~ 35mm 36 Exposures

£5.55 Inc. vat

Agfa Copex Rapid is a low-speed panchromatic black and white film with a nominal sensitivity of ISO 50/18°.

Excellent resolution, very fine grain and excellent acutance are characteristic of Copex Rapid.

Please note that this film may come in labelled as Spur DSX…don’t worry it’s the same thing!

Copex Rapid is ideal for reversal processing in the Scala process but can be developed at home as a b&w negative film….we’re going to do this with some home made caffenol just for kicks!

Maker says:
Agfa Copex Rapid is recommended to be developed with Spur Modular UR for optimal results. The Parts A1 and B are needed for the absolutely streak-free development of the SPUR DSX/Agfa Copex Rapid roll film; Part C is no longer needed as previously. When Copex is developed with Spur Modular UR, sharpness, fine-grain, exposure latitude, tonal values, speed utilisation are retained by Spur Modular UR developer.

For Black and White Reversal process expose to:
35mm: ISO 50-64
120 Medium Format: ISO 64-80
Development time: 4 minutes
