    Hello John,

    Nice to know You are fine. 2470 is documenting the pictures , it is ortho , if it is cheaper , why not ? I think my fathers Parkinson has a effect on me , I am forgeting everything , I spoke with an gentleman and he said it is possible to cut 4 rolls of sub mini film from one 35mm roll. I think You are right John , it must be left to the people loves to experiment.

    Take care,

    Umut

    Terminology:

    "Miniature Film" refers to small formats used for pictorial photography. In the past it was used for 35mm and smaller. Today for 16mm and smaller.
    The emulsions are the same as for larger formats.
    This term thus only refers to the size of the film.

    "Microfilm" refers to extreme small scale of the image with reference to the needed enlargement.
    It uses special emulsions. Often not continous-tone.
    The size of the film is of lesser importance.


    Important research labs for continuous-tone applications of this films in the past have been Gigabitfilm and SPUR.

    Agfa never had a "miniature format film factory." All their films whatever the size were cut from large rolls which were something like 30 ft in width.

    It might surprise people but the term miniature film also covered 127 andn 120 at one time. Later when 35mm became the predominant format after WWII the term began to be used only for sub 35mm formats.

    Their website indicates that they will be supplying again in the autumn, but it's not clear if this includes mail order to US:-

    Agfa Gevert still makes various Polyester based films in Belgium. One line is the COPEX microfilm, that they are now selling through Eastman Micro-graphics under Kodak's Former Imagelink brand., (I guess the order size was too small these days for Building 38 to handle.)

    shows most of the various film based products. Many of the MACO films are re-purposed Ariel Camera Films.

    I don't think it is a matter of size. Agfa even has more production capacity than Kodak.
    I guess it is rather a matter of future perspective. Having a company that is in bancrupsy as single supplier is not the best idea with a equivalent competitor at hand.

    What is the Minimum Order Quantity? It can't be thousands or so?
    Is seems they are not meeting it themselves either as there has been no production of anything for times.
