    They have been produced Agfa Copex (microfilm) for many years now, so they have never been out of the film coating loop.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    No, Agfa Germany is not coating anymore. Agfa Gevaert is a separate operation in Belgium that is almost an independent company, and has always coated, they never stopped, but they never did manufacture the Agfa materials we have used in consumer photography. Their specialties are movie film, aerial film and microfilm types of products. Now some of these products may resemble the products from Agfa Germany, but they are not the same. Some of the products could be used for pictorial photography, if they were cut and finished to standard sizes as used by consumer cameras such as 35mm and 120.
