    We are currently working on financing this. As it involves loosing at least half of the funds it has to be backed by actual revenue and can´t be borrowed. This slows things down. We are not talking thousands nor tens of thousands of Euros.....

    If you want to help you could buy some MCP paper. We are currently overstocked in this product and selling it brings us both revenue and free cash ;-)

    Kind regards,

    What about setting up a pre-ordering page to raise funds for the film? All formats included, also the ULF formats?

    Has Adox abandoned the project of introducing ADOX PAN 400?

    When Mirko first posted in June 2010 the film seemed quite far advanced but it is now nearly 4 years on so I too wonder what has happened. It suggests that for whatever reason everything is on hold/ abandoned or there is a very protracted technical issue that is still being worked on and not yet solved.

    It would be nice to know.

    My first guess is that money is the issue. The film market is shrinking faster than anyone, even the doomsayers, saw.

    If you look at the required revenue vs expected return on a shrinking market it crushes the soul.

    Would scores of us jump on it if it magically appeared? Sure. But we can't carry ADOX.

    The loss of EFKE's microscopic production run capability was a bad blow.

    From the old ADOX website:

    "+++ PAN 400 is ready for production but due to the sudden changes at Fotokemika who manufactured the CHS line of films for us we had to prioritize and decided to invest in the remanufacturing of a 100 ASA material at first+++ "

    That's why there is a no Adox Pan 400.But they gave us the ADOX CHS 100 II instead.
    As long as Kodak floods the market with cheap TRI-X there will be no new 400 ASA film from any manufacturer.

    Cheers

    What's your definition of cheap Tri-X?
