    I have some ADOX CMS 20 I would like to use at some point, now that J&C is officially done, where do I get it, how much and can I use another developer like Technidol instead and get 95% of the intended result?

    For the time beeing you are welcome to purchase the developer straight from us until things are resolved with our distribution in north america.

    No other developer will give you close results. The system is highly unique.

    Is it true that one bottle develops 10 rolls?

    And if true, how much is it per bottle U.S.?

    Can you direct me to the page where I can order it?

    For some reason, I am not finding it easy to do that.

    One bottle is good for 5 films.

    We currently charge:

    7,50 EUR per bottle of Adotech
    21,00 EUR for 5 films including developer for 5 films (one bottle)
    39,00 EUR for 10 films and two bottles of developer.

    You need to order via email to info@fotoimpex.de because we do not have a webstore.
    Here you can download our full catalogue with prices in German:
    http://www.fotoimpex.de/catalogus_novus_impexi_germanus.pdf

    We will make out a proforma invoice and after you made the transfer or paypal payment we will ship the goods.

    For just one bottle of adotech it will be rather costly as we charge 20 EUR for the shippment (which is actuall already a subsidised rate).

    We cannot quote in USD because we are not located in the US and we have to quote in EUR. it is beyond our control which exchange rate paypal or your bank charges you. at the current it should be aproximately 1.32 USD to a EUR.

    If you want to shop via an online store rather you can also go to retrophotographic.com in the UK, but they cannot offer the low shipping costs.

    We are aware of the fact that this is not a long term solution and rather complicated for the customers but in the meantime until things with JandC are resolved I am sorry not to be able to offer you anything else.

    Best regards,

    Mirko

    Mirko;

    If some of us were to arrange a group purchase, how many bottles could be shipped for the 20 EUR charge?

    Thanks

    As many as you like :smile:
    We charge 20 EUR flat and cut the rest of the postage out of our markup for the time beeing while we have no US distribution.

    Count me in too... I might take some extra CMS film by the same token (only 4 rolls in the fridge, that's not enough of a stash!)

    Folks, it looks like a couple of us are willing to step up and put in a bulk order for both film and chemistry, get the word out so you don't miss out.

    CMS 20 and Adotech anyone?

    Although they are in the same class, Bluefire and CMS 20 are not exactly the same film, just so you know.

    Adox Canada is not the same folks, or perhaps the same products as ADOX (Fotoimpex) I think their is also at least one other firm who is rummored to have registered ADOX as a trademark elesewhere.

    The ADOX trademark was used by Dupont but expired for non-use, and both the Folks behind FotoImpex and the Guy behind Frugal Photographer grabed it in their own countries. ADOX Canada can only use the name in Canada, and Photoimpex has it in europe. In each case, the firms can call whatever they Want "Adox" for example the 126 colour film.

    The original Adox formula were made for years by EFKE, but they never had the Adox name ot use.

    I made up an order with a friend here in New York (that's the one in New York, USA, not the one in NE England or anywhere else). Their service and delivery was excellent.

    Best,
    Helen
