    It would make me feel better to know they will still be here at the end of the year - for both film and chemicals.

    I was looking through this month's Rangefinder magazine. In it, Agfa had put out a statement stating that they are in it for the long haul and that rumours of them sinking under is not true. The added that they are in fact generating higher profits this quarter than they expected.

    Now that is excellent news, I'm on my way to America to catch up with 2 APUGERS for a shoot in Death Valley so the 60 rolls of APX100 waiting for me can ALL be put to good use. - and then replenished :smile:


    Thanks for the positive info.

    According to the issue of Black & White I read yesterday, the German division is insolvent, but the British division is doing well and has product.

    Remember AGFA make paper that is used by Light jet prints in labs, as well as film, should that not help keep them going?
