Actually some of the shots look like they used a quality camera and lens, I had to severely reduce the file sizes from the image files sent to me such that I couuld easily get them onto the forum.
Strange color rendering...... I wonder what colored filters will do? or Photoshop color alterations will do. We will certainly find out once people get their hands on the unusual color film in about two weeks.
I may be missing something here, but if Lomochrome purple can be simulated in Photoshop, why not tweak a standard film in PP?
Here is some interesting news from Georg Thaler from Lomography in Vienna:
Thanks for reply. Glad you like the shots.
Regarding the source of this film I can tell you one thing, Afga is not making it and it’s really easy in handling, every Lab will be able to process it easily.
Producing sheets and/or special film size like 127 is not planned yet. This is something we might consider a bit later, once we have fed the market with more common formats.
Thanks for forwarding the Ferrania NL, I’m on their mailing-list as well. We are really amazed about this sign of life from Italy. We are very looking forward to get some of their resumed films in some month and let’s see if there will be a cooperation later again.
Supply of our purple films is on schedule. You should get the rolls within the next 1-2 weeks.
Thank you & Kind Regards from superhot Vienna,
lomographic society international
So it sounds like it's not Ferrania or AGFA (afga? haha) so then who else? Could just be fuji... they sell a lot of fuji film on the site already... And what are piggies? I lost all my piggies on lomography but I didn't even know what the heck they were ... and I couldn't find on the site where it even explains that... lol
None of the above companies have purchased any equipment from Efke.Quote:
a lot of EFKE's production machinery has been sold to others like Maco/Rollei, ADOX and InovisCoat
Inoviscoat is not interested in becoming again what they emerged from. They want to run their coating and develop new products to be coated, ideally not from the photographic field. Most of their photographic products are converted and sold by us. Some specialty products are also coated for other customers.Quote:
InovisCoat quite possibly could do the cutting and packaging of the 35mm and 120 film seeing that they possess lots of former Agfa Leverkusen film equipment.
We (ADOX) are by now a full converting company capable of converting film in Super8, 35mm, 120 and sheetfilms as well as paper and chemistry.
We can also produce photographic chemistry, emulsions and do sample coatings.
No, they donīt.Quote:
There is a good posibility Maco/Rollei will do the cutting and packaging because they do have the equipment and know how to cut down the large rolls into 35mm and 120.
Would you, can you, PLEASE look into producing E-6 chemistry kits for home use, especially in the USA market? not 3 bath kits but proper 6(7 stabilizer) bath kits? PLEASE, there's only one kit and it's a 3 bath kit that has a blix which goes off quick and doesn't always remove all the silver... so this is something we desperately need here, fuji stopped shipping their kits here, and kodak pulled out a long time ago from their home kits. If you can that would be the best thing EVER! Also thanks for continuing to keep Adonal (Rodinal) around, it's my favorite developer and I always make sure to buy the ADOX brand when I buy it.
Starting to like ADOX as much as Ilford:) [not saying ilford is in any way better of a company, I mean that this communication you're giving is what Ilford has been showing us (customers) and it really gives us a sense of stability and further interest in keeping a company alive and investing in their products] Good communication and support from the company to it's customers is a huge selling point in this market, so thanks, you're doing a great job!
Thank you. If you want Rodinal made acording to the genuine Agfa recipe from 2005 this is your best/only choice.Quote:
and I always make sure to buy the ADOX brand when I buy it.
After the stop of production in Vaihingen all other developers sold today come from various factories and are clones which are more or less close but only ours is identical. This is not comunicated well and whatīs being written is not totally off because at the time of publication (sometimes more than 3 years back) they really were identical (as long as they came from Vaihingen).
I am not saying the above to badmouth our competitors products. They are also of a high quality and work well. But because of some assumptions made earlier in this thread I want to bring to your attention that there is a substantual difference between what we do and what some of our competitors do. We actually build up a real factory, we internalize knowledge and train people. We become more and more independant from other suppliers day by day, year by year. If something happens to a supplier of ours we can take those recipes (and which we constantly develop further) to another preproducer or make them in house. This built up of a new factory is very costly and redirects the entire income stream from Fotoimpex back into ADOX.
Obviously we would like you (the customer) to prefer our brand over another if you feel this is something which you like to support.
Btw. we plan to reintroduce the brand name Rodinal in the US market.
