    Now why that bottle is made for the Swiss version of Kodak, I do not know.

    The bottles I have seen around here of HC110 just say made in Germany for Eastman Kodak. So far I haven't seen anything that refers to Kodak Alaris.
    Matt, thanks for the info on the Sarl name. I have also not seen anything that says Alaris, but I haven't bought any Kodak film in a while. Been using a lot of Ilford the last year or so.

    Wasn't there a thread like this a few months back, or was that for HC-110?
    At least it is still being made, which is important.

    Slightly old news, but alas still interesting. I think this is much better than seeing these choices fall off the map.

    The U.S.A isn't the only country in the World who can make quality products.

    Tmax Developer - Made in Germany now!

    I just bought a bottle of Photo Flo at Adolph Gasser's in San Francisco yesterday. No longer sold in the round, squat "HC-110-type" bottle but sold in the taller, square (rectangle?) and smaller mouth bottles as in the photo above of the new Germany-made Tmax developer. Sure enough on the back: Made in Germany. So photo flo is the same now.

    No but the inference is that if the product isn't made in the U.S. it's inferior.

    I didnt see it that way at all. Sometimes change in manufacturer is just change in manufacturer.

    Yeah, I don't see that inference either. And I doubt most would think a chemical now processed in German vs US would be an issue. China maybe but it's more about quality control than where it's made.

    Most Americans think of German products as first class.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
