    Agfa discontinue all MF films

    Agfa confirmed to me that they are discontinuing all of their Medium Format films. Here's the email they sent me:

    Dear Philip,

    Thank you for contacting AgfaPhoto USA.

    AgfaPhoto has indeed discontinued all medium format films


    Sincerely,
    John Auer

    This is a catastrophy for me as I mostly use Agfa for color slides.
    And I will miss Scala and APX100 for B&W.

    (Most color films from Fuji look like plastic and Kodak slides are only useful for "special" effects.)

    So what film to switch to, from APX100? Probably Fuji Acros.
    Or maybe Efke 100. And I'm sorry Agfa, Im not keeping
    APX100 in 135, it will be Acros (or Efke) all over for me.

    I'm really sad to see the APX100 go. It has been my film of
    choice for a very very long time.

    bummer -- MW

    Damn. I have some, I am wondering what I ought to do, go out and get more or give up on them. Pretty infuriating. This is the first time that one of these discontinuance notices has hit this close to home. Who knows, maybe I can switch over to something else and sell my APX100 stock on eBay once prices start going up. It should be soon since B&H, Adorama and Freestyle all seem to be out.

    Well, Ilford are continuing with 120 and are currently canvassing opinions about putting 220 back in to production if the numbers add up. (http://www.ilford.com/html/us_englis...22&whichpage=2)

    Agfa are shooting themselves in the foot. How many people will use different films in 120 and 135? Killing off 120 has just hastened the demise of their 35mm. Daft.


    Cheers, Bob.
