    Efke fim Update and possible special order

    I wanted to post this here and over at the LFF.

    I was at Freestyle today and I met with Eric Joseph who handles all of the ordering for Freestyle. The Fotokemika production is done! No more coating. The factory will close. They have inventory and master rolls that have been coated. This has been reported here in another thread.

    Eric told me that they have master rolls coated but he can not get an answer as to how much. So, Freestyle will place one last order for Efke film for them to cut and send to them. I asked about the possibility of cutting Efke 25 in 8x20. We would have to do a 10 box minimum most likely and if we do more all the better. Price now is $175.99 a box. (I'm using the PL-100 pricing) As an 8x20 shooter I'd like to see if I could stock up on this film if I could. Please pm me or send me an e-mail to jim@carbonartphotography.com if you are interested. Eric can not guarantee that they will do this but I think if there is interest we could get it done. Freestyle would bring it in and handle the shipping and payment. Please let me know. We need to act on this right away.

    Also, if some of you are interested in 11x14 Efke-25 let me know and it may be possible to have this cut as well.Just throwing it out there for those who may be interested so let me know. I may go for 3-4 boxes of 8x20 if I can swing it.

    I'm sorry, but does this mean Efke film is no longer being made at all?

    (I read through some other threads but I cannot seem to understand what's going on )
    Those who know, shoot film

    As I understand it, when the master rolls that are already coated and ready to cut are cut and the sizes that are ordered are shipped that is it. No more!

    Does this affect Adox films or just Efke?

    I do not know if this effects Adox. I believe that Efke supplies Adox with their film and it is just boxed as Adox. Don't quote me on that because I am not sure and I do not want to cause any problems if I am wrong. The 8x20 is 25 sheet boxes.

    From how I understand it, these new Adox films are the first to be produced from the old Agfa research lab coating machines. They aren't the old Efke emulsions.
