    Great news. Now I have no reason not to finish building my 16x20 camera.
    Thanks!

    Mirko,
    Good news! Thanks!
    I noticed on the product photo, there isn't any box. Are you planning to supply it in boxes in the future?

    Yes that's the old one.

    This is what Adox replied on their Facebook page:

    "120 is in preparation but we need to built machines to do certain steps in production which we have not done in house before but the respective preproducer quit business (one more). Thus we can´t say at this point when the 120 will be available."

    Fair enough.

    I will buy 35mm and 4x5 for now.

    Go Adox Go!

    Good to know. I never used Adox but hear good things about them. And I've seen nice examples on APUG.
    So I'm going to try this film in several formats.
    I hope they'll also make 18x24 cm format sheet film soon as well.

    A rather burning question in my mind - while it's great that you offer all those formats, I do hope you will not forget your european customers who are using good old european formats - especially 18x24cm and 13x18cm - which is NOT the same as 5x7 inches. I am almost out of the old CHS 100 and was thrilled when I saw this thread but it looks that I should use my last box sparingly still...

    I could use 18x24 cm format for my old Russian FKD plate camera:

    If you want to buy any other format then the ones we have put out already please inquire with Fotoimpex.
    We will quote you based on the quantity you need. Alternatively we can keep your inquiry until others ask for the same format. We plan to cut sheetfilm every 4 weeks, so we can collect orders and then make every size you want.
    For those of you who need 13x18 as a separate format from 5x7 please give exact aim measurements. We can cut with a precision of +/- 1/10th of a mm.

    Thank you all for the feedback,

    Mirko

    Thanks Mirko! Any word on what's heading to the US and when? Any bulk 35mm 100' rolls?

    Not really because there will most probably not be a distribution via supermarkets again on this planet ;-)

    Probably not. We have no spooling machine in working condition. The one we have is unfortunately relatively new (built in 2003) which means it is obsolete by today because it is (or better was) controled by Siemens Electronics. Todays machines never last longer than 5-8 years unless you own a shelve of old Siemens S4..S7 parts, an old laptop with the old respective Siemens software on (in working condition, which Siemens does not let you have for no longer "supported" systems), the old Siemens programing cable and ofcourse you must posess the old original actual programm (which software programmers never let you have even if they work for you they try to keep this from you to make themselves inalienable).
    She´s beautifull but modern junk as we don´t have the last missing thing: the actual program.
    One day, when all other problems are solved, the sun shines down on Bad Saarow and we are bored and out of Beer, we might push her out in the courtyard and start rewiring her to a more simple AVR controler :smile:
