    Mirko,

    I still say wow! Good luck on this endeavor. Another option for materials will be very welcome. Thanks.

    Mirko, that's the best news I've heard in a long time. If I can be a resource for you in any way, please tell me.

    Best,

    This is really good news. Just this week I was looking at some old prints on Agfa Classic and wishing it was still around (one of them my avatar in fact!). It's also very encouraging that in some ways the pendulum seems to be swinging back to some degree at least (maybe it will swing even further) and traditional photography seems to be certain of a niche way into the future.

    To all producers and potential producers of trad. photographic materials: We are here in numbers!! Be sure of it, WE WILL BUY !!

    Wow, this is interesting!

    Portriga. The old Portriga. Graded. That would be something.

    Never really used many Agfa products (apart from Rodinal) but this is fantastic news and shows that there is still plenty of drive, determination and hopefully demand to keep B&W products going and improving...

    Be very interesting to see how you get on.

    I wonder actually who spread this word at this stage as it is way too early to do when you have not even ripened all emulsions fully.
    All I can confirm is that the above named companies are at this stage not involved neither financally nor with knowledge or support.
    One of them has announced interest in buying the readymade paper last week. That´s it for them.

    I hope that this venture will be succesfull and will surely communicate more details as soon as they become available.

    Where the paper will be coated has yet to be determined. At this point the emulsionists are working on the emulsions only and use small lab test coaters.
    The grain structure looks promising, that is all we can say at this point.
    More details will hoepfully become available around february 2007.

    Regards and merry Christmas to everyone,

    Mirko,

    Good luck with the project and I hope (along with everyone else here) it comes together for Fotoimpex.

    I am starting enlarging at home and I will most likely wind up with some Agfa paper to play with for Christmas, it would be nice to know it continued on under another name. Merry Christmas!

    This is great news as I miss so much those agfa papers. I've just read the magic word "Portriga", I'm shaking already. And the Record Rapid...
    But what about the ban on cadmium ?
    Best to you, I hope it will work fine.

    Question- Mirko: You are bringing back both APX films and B&W paper? Or just the paper itself?

    Second question- If APX films will be remade again- does this mean the beloved APX 25 will be coming back?

    Thirdly did Maco/ FotoImpex buy the rights to the APX emulsion recipes?

    If you have such info at this time, what will these films be called and under what name- Adox APX?

    Finally what formats will be supported? I assume 35mm for sure, but what about 120 or 4x5?
