    Does anyone know if Agfa Photo resolved their bankruptcy status and are still in business? I searched this forum, but the most recent post was one back in June about time Agfa went into bankruptcy.

    Are they still producing Agfa 100 in 120 and Multicontrast Classic paper?

    There's nothing new on their website.

    I had a phone chat with John Auer earlier this week. I can't say whether they are solvent or not, or about the paper, but 120 b/w, both 100 & 400, are no longer in production. The two will be produced in 35mm.

    John told me that medium format production, the way it used to be produced, by the millions of rolls, is no longer profitable. It may be profitable for the small guys.
