    As some of you might know we have been a sponsor of the first APUG conference in Toronto.
    We always thought of Foto3 as a follow up event.
    With APUG withdrawing from Foto3 our main reason for participating has vanished.
    Consequently ADOX is withdrawing from this event as well.

    The next show on our shedule is now Photokina in Cologne/Germany (Sept 23rd to 28th).

    We welcome everyone to visit ADOX in Cologne.

    Best regards,

    Mirko

    Sad to hear that Mirko, but then again not unexpected judging by what's been going on here relative to Foto-3. I've been sitting silently on the sidelines watching all these 'pullouts' and dis-associations happen. I hope this will not detract from your companies ability to get MCC111 online and available to us by August 2008??. Us diehards really appreciate your efforts in this regard.

    Mirko: In response to an email inquiry regarding the availability of your film and black and white chemicals in the USA ,I received an email from Germany that Adox currently has no representative in the USA. Shipping from Europe begins at 20 Euros. Can you kindly confirm that there is no availability of Adox film and relevant chemicals to APUG members who might desire to try your products and who live in the US? If true, too bad.

    Freestyle has plenty of Adox products - film, chemistry and paper. There have been previous threads on this subject that state that they've also been in charge of sending out the test packages for the the upcoming MCC 111, which indicates that more stuff is coming down the pike.

    I appreciate the news. However, I checked Freestyle on line before emailing Berlin and as I recall the products listed did not include some film and developers Adox promotes. I will call Freestyle to be certain. Thanks again.

    Bear in mind that some Adox products are also branded as Efke. That said, before J&C or Freestyle was bringing all these materials to the US, I would get together with a couple of other local photographers to order from fotoimpex to economize on shipping.

    David, I would like to join the ordering if you plan to organize one. Keep me informed, thanks.

    I haven't done it for a while, and I'm pretty well stocked for film for now, so I don't see myself making another big order for some months.

    Just what I was thinking, Andrew. I can't wait to get my hands on some more MCC111.
