    I just received an email from DT saying they had Agfa APX film and RODINAL.Buy a bottle and get a free roll of film.
    Hope this isn't old news.

    I just saw that too and they have announced it here. I thought Rodinal was gone for good.

    Rodinal's never been gone. It was in short supply but available.

    Mis-labelled and repackaged R0-9 being sold as Rodinal has gone though.

    Well, this is interesting news for me. I have several bulk rolls of APX and was considering the purchase of more from Ultrafine. However, if APX is still commonly available, I'll hold off for a while and see what happens. BTW, am I dreaming or did I hear from somewhere that someone is making APX again?

    You weren't dreaming. ADOX Fotoimpex is planning on releasing the film, though I've not read an update lately. This is apparently one of their side projects in conjunction with the resurrection of MCC 188 (my personal fave). :D

    John: I applied as well and also received the confirmation email. But no samples yet. I poked the original thread up last week, hoping to get an update from Mirko. I'm sure he'll be around with one eventually.

    Snapshot: always happy to make someone feel more sane! :tongue:

    Almost three years after AgfaPhoto's bankruptcy? and we've still got a healthy supply of APX. I have 50 rolls of 400 in my fridge, but I could use some more 100 :wink:
