    New Agfa production?

    or just a new marketing agreement for what's left?

    Without APX 25, it hardly seems worth it.

    I've never shot APX25, so I can't comment on that. But for me, keeping APX100 alive seems worth it on its own.

    To me it sounds like they're getting rid of some old stocks hidden somewhere. I Did hear of it two days ago, but when I read a similar article with the press release; It didn't sound at all new manufacture.
    Ferrania USA owns that Oklahoma plant that was discussed here some months ago, do they still have film coating and packing equipment?

    If my guess isn't right and they're remanufacturing some Agfa film, that would be great!

    I was saddened to see only 35mm in the product photos. I wish I could get some Agfa 120 size.

    Difficult to say, but I doubt there's any new Agfa emulsion being produced. It's possible that Ferrania has got what's left of the master rolls (Rollei is still trying to move the remainder of their re-labeled APX 100 some 3+ years after obtaining it) and is finishing it and boxing it. Who really knows...

    There are longer-term plans from Adox/Fotoimpex (who recently brought Agfa MCP and MCC B&W enlargng papers back from the grave) to get APX 100 and APX 400 back in production but there's no fixed timeline at the present. This would include 135, 120, and 4x5 sizes - so we'll just have to hope this becomes a reality.
    Digital Photography is just "why-tech" not "high tech"..

    Which tells me more than anything that it's just existng stock that wasn't re-labeled by Rollei. 120 stocks of both APX 100 and APX 400, world-wide, were gone within 3-4 months of AgfaPhoto going belly-up.

    If it were new manufacturing, you would think there would be more news about it.

    That's the only Agfa film I'm interested in too.

    Ultra 50 and Portrait 160 would have got my interest.
