    110

    Whatever comes out in 110 is independant from our scale up probelms.
    Those are a matter of chemistry during precipitation. 110 is solely a confectioning issue.

    Best wishes,

    Mirko

    So, exactly what is the practical difference between the first coating and the way the film will eventually be made?

    The first coating was our first run on the big machine.
    We undershot our target by about 1/2 to 1 F-Stop so we started touching the emulsions again and this is the reason for the current delay.

    The film is usable and not worse than 5 year old APX out there but base fogg will be lower and speed will be increased in the final product.

    Kind regards,

    Mirko

    Is anyone in NA carrying the First Release material that you know of?

    I did followup on the sources you gave me in Europe, but it is prohibitively expensive to ship small quantities for an individual. Just as you predicted.

    Michael,

    the film is sold below our production costs to regain at least some of the money tied up in the materials used to manufacture it.
    Thus we canīt put it through a distribution chain.
    You are welcome to order the film straight of Fotoimpex at our usual fixed shipping fee of 20 USD per parcel to the US.

    Ofcourse this only makes sense once you take a few more rolls....

    Thanky you,

    Mirko

    Mirko,

    Where in the web store is it? I can't find the film there anywhere. Do you have a link?

    Thanks,

    By confectioning, you are talking about getting the film into the cassettes? Also, is there still going to a color 110 film?

    I can't find it either, but Mirco stated in his german forum that sales of that film will start in the second half/end of September. I guess it will show up then.

    Would anyone be interested in a group buy to make the shipping costs more palatable? Of course, redistribution shipping once it got to one of our houses may very well eat up the savings on shipping from Europe. Kind of a Catch-22 there.
