    Scala still available

    Hi all
    I have found that Lupus Imaging still stock AGFA Scala 200x.
    Here is the link: http://www.lupus-shop.de/-35/-34/-67...65e97c83202d78
    I thought this was discontinued and the processing was not available.
    Regards

    The proprietary process is not available, but it works as a great punchy neg film, or it can be reversal processed using processes other than the Scala one. It can also be made to have somewhat normal contrast by overexposing and using highly diluted developer.

    As a neg, I overexpose two stops and develop for 5-8 minutes in HC-110 dilution H for normal contrast. Or I rate at 200 and develop 5-8 minutes in HC-110 dilution B for high contrast.

    I like it, but I would never pay a premium for it considering the options out there in terms of fresh films.

    Must be old stock. While proprietary Agfa processing is long gone, this lab does superb work on Scala or reversal of current b&w materials:

    Not cheap but Scala and its processing were never giveaway priced anyway.

    Agfa Scala in 35mm is still available from a number of suppliers in Germany and possibly other countries in Europe. I bought a 5 pack earlier this year expiry date 2014. A number of labs in Germany and France still develop this, I got it done at Photo Studio13 in Germany for a reasonable cost. They also reverse process other films mainly Rollei types, I had a roll of 120 Superpan 200 done a the same time which came out well.

    That is right. It is still original Agfa Scala 200X produced by Agfa in Leverkusen, Germany, in 2005.
    Due to a statement from Fotoimpex, stock will last until 2017.

    The film is available for example at
    www.fotoimpex.de
    www.fotobrenner.de
    www.nordfoto.de
    http://www.spuersinn-shop.de/

    That is wrong. The original Agfa Scala process has never been discontinued. The chemistry is produced on a regular basis (by Saal and Tetenal).
    These European labs are offering the original Scala process:
    www.photostudio13.de
    http://www.phototechnik-berlin.de/
    http://www.bildmanufaktur-muenchen.d...ktur-muenchen/
    http://www.arkalab.com/arka-photo-la...laboratory.php

    Some of these labs (e.g. Photostudio13) also offer development of further films in the Scala process, like Agfa Copex Rapid, Rollei Retro 80S, Rollei Superpan 200, Rollei Infrared, Foma R100 etc.

    The following European labs are offering BW reversal development with their own, special (self-designed) process:

    No longer available--film or processing--in N. America. Dr5 in Denver is the place for reversal processing of available b&w film materials.

    Who'd bother buying stale Scala anyway?
