    Agfa et al

    It's just too damn sad to see this film stock disappear from the marketplace.
    I reiterate the fact that the last man standing will make a profit. Agfa already has the marketing and distribution channels set up to go. What a shame. Support Ilford-they want the business. Freezers-I've had three loaded for the last 10 years-only who knew how fast the "D" revolution would take place. At my age I think as soon as I have the money I will load up once more but that should be it for me.
    Best, Peter

    The information of discontinued 120 rolfilms of Agfa photo is correct.

    However in the B&W market, Rollei is introducing officially next month new films:

    http://www.photo.net/bboard/uploaded...ad_id=25646984

    Under them Retro 100 and Retro 400, emulsion based on APX and the 120 rolfilm configuration is made in Hungary. (Agfa is not possible anymore).

    Further a new I.R. iso 400 film, also available on 120 rolfilm and 4X5" and a new super fine grain PAN25 film, iso 25 also available on 120 rolfilm.

    Further information is already available on our NL-website.

    best regards,

    Robert

    What a Shame. I'm a big fan of Agfa paper and have been planning on testing APX. Guess I'll forget about it now and stick with Efke which I've grown quite fond of.

    My freezer already looks like a film store. The wifes going to kill me if I keep stocking up on all these great discontinued products! I got the same email from John Auer, but at least he told me they would continue making B&W paper!

    We should start a museum of discontinued products...

    Bummer, as I was just starting to get the hang of it, having completed initial density tests, and ready to finetune my process.

    Is JandC planning on getting the new Rollei films? I'm sure it won't be hard to get customers. For now I praise these goodly folks for bringing us Efke, among other things.

    Well this is only from AGFA USA right? Or is AGFA USA the only AGFA still making film?

    But great news about Rollei, as long as it is the same film I don't care about the label.

    (AGFA USA is being rather stupid still, who will buy 135 if you have to buy your 120 film from another brand? That's not the way to know your films)

    cheers!

    "Or is AGFA USA the only AGFA still making film?"

    I don't think Agfa USA ever made anything, Quinten... I am pretty sure they did not make film. The European plants must have been productive enough (in the good old days) to cover the overseas demand.
