    The end of Agfaphoto...is nigh.

    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    And I was really starting to like Agfa papers. And using a lot of APX100...
    I am not afraid of grain.

    Yes, it's sad to see one old giant leave the arena. I will miss Rodinal under it's original label... and I need to find a replacement for my Neutol WA...

    No great surprise. The Agfa paper was one of my favorites. Down to two major players now, Forte and Ilford for paper. Those paper coating blades that Photo Engineer is discussing in a different thread are starting to look a lot more interesting.

    I also liked the Nuetol developers and of course Rodinal. But these can be made form scratch and similar products are still available from othr sources such as J&C and Photo Formulary.

    I have alwasy thought things would shake out to a couple of major players and a couple of niche suppliers. Hopefully that is the case and Forte can hold on.

    Don't forget Kentmere, though not a major player they produce some excellent stuff, especially their fibre paper and Art range.
