    Tom, ever since Kodak began packaging its 8x10 film in 10-sheet boxes there's been an on-line outcry. I'm sure sales have suffered as a result. It seems people don't readily accept reality. The market for analog photography products is a small fraction of what it once was. If a top-quality manufacturer decides higher prices and smaller packages are appropriate for this "new world order," why make matters worse by further discouraging consumption?

    Please purchase and enjoy the extremely fine Adox MCC as it's currently offered. I encourage everyone else to do the same!

    Reading the press release, they talk of AGFAphoto "Branded" film, and don't mention APX400. Maco has been only selling the APX100 stock. As someone else metioned, Ferania themselves have said they are no longer making film, but the US plant was always a packing/converting plant for private label products.

    Ferania USA could probably convert, perf, and package any master roll of film, from almost any source. Hard to imagine that any actual AGFAphoto made colour film would still be arround, but perhaps some of Ferrania's 2008 production is still in stock.

    AGFA-Grevert is only set up to make Polyester base film AFAIK, and the stuff sourced from there is mostly from their Military-Industrial range. Thus Maco's S series films.

    OTOH is is hard to tell the players without a scorecard, and several smaller makers are now capable of coating stuff, and sending it out to be converted.

    Well, I'm with Tom. I'd buy more of the new paper if it was in 100 or 250 sheet boxes.

    If there is still APX100 lying around it would make more sense to start with some APX25!

    Ferrania Solaris is still being made in 2009. There was an announcement in the summer of 2008 that Ferrania would stop film production at the end off 2008 however it looks like that did not happen.

    The new Agfa plant isn't in a cave in Iran is it? Glows on its own?

    ADOX/Fotoimpex have already stated that this absolutely cannot be done. APX 25 was discontiniued by Agfa because a critically important chemical constituent became impossible to obtain. This has not changed.

    But APX100 and APX400 are feasible.
    Digital Photography is just "why-tech" not "high tech"..

    They may be feasible, but they don't interest me in the slightest. It's the APX 25 that I wanted to try. For 100 and 400 speed black and white film, we have many choices.

    I believe the film(s) Rollei Retro 80s and 400s sold by www.macodirect.de are made by Agfa in Belgium. It says so on my 400s 120 film anyway.

    The majority of the Rollei branded films are current Agfa production or at least out of their current range.
