    Re-Lauch of AGFA MULTICONTRAST MCC/MCP photo paper!

    AGFA MULTICONTRAST FORMULA (prescription):

    As from Leverkusen/Germany, is reported from reliable cycles, former AGFA engineers and chemists, works on the fact to already repair on the original AGFA MCC and MCP based photo paper in the year of 2007, in Europe. The big strategic partners, which are capable of this enormous financial force act, will be probably to be searched rather at financial strong enterprises of the producing industry, as with the small and middle photo trade. It is to be virtually excluded therefore, from up-to-date knowledge conditions, that only one partner can handle this force act, because.......million investments into the production, the adaption of the existing formulas on the, then new pouring plant, the procurement of raw materials, financing of the production to an extent of a couple million square meters, world-wide driving out structures, marketing abilities acting world-wide, a condition only by very strong partners, will have to be mastered.

    The specialists in the photo scene therefore itself are united, that in the forums now vagabonding the announcements of an substantial production rather as a marketing bubble, to be regarded as a less than substantial statement.

    I think Babblefish didn't quite make this understandable to me. Will Agfa be reintroduced or not?

    This is good news I guess if they get it right. If not just another paper not to buy. Let us know if they go back to coating Brovira FB. Now that would be news.

    Ok, I read the german text and try to sum it up:

    1. Former AGFA engineers work on the introduction of papers based on the old MCP/MCC in 2007.
    2. Therfor much money is needed which probably will come from several big companies outside the photo industry.
    3. Insider judge, that the announcements made in several forae are some kind of "markting bubble".

    Not sure, what this guy wants to say. Keep in mind, that he is quite close related to MACO, so this could be part of an "announcment war" going on between MACO and Fotoimpex.
    Regards,
    Andreas

    Thanks Andreas - I would never have got that from the babblefish version!

    Basically, several rumours rolled into one with no point whatsoever: just as I am coming to expect from Maco "announcements". Ho hum.

    Cheers, Bob.

    Dear Jim,

    Don't you mean, "Shall we our exhalations grasp"?

    You remember the famous machine translation of 'The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak": it reputedly came out as "The vodka is good but the meat is insipid."

    Cheers,

    R.

    Russian testing of the strength of materials with a hydraulic ram went through computer translation and came out as "wet male sheep".
