    AGFA's Miniature Format Film Factory and use products with Minox

    I read couple of times that AGFA has a miniature format film factory and it is related with Kodak also. Is there a color , slide or bw film coming out from that factory and is it possible to buy reasonable amount , what about the prices and development and is it possible to use with Minox ? WHO sells them ?

    Minox themselves still supply a small selection of sub-miniature films http://www.payworxx.de/minox/index.p...udqsa5dgf2sv44 ); I believe they cut and pack this themselves from bulk film from one or other of the main manufacturers, and that a few other specialist suppliers also supply reloads.

    But I'm not aware of any "film factory" actually making special emulsions or finished films for Minox or any other sub-miniature formats, the demand would be minimal.

    The Agfa-Gevaert Group and Eastman Park Micrographics sign worldwide master supply agreement for Imagelink® microfilm products
    Press release
    Mortsel (Belgium) - Rochester (USA)
    January 10, 2013 09:46


    The Agfa-Gevaert Group (Agfa) and Eastman Park Micrographics (EPM) announced today that they have signed a worldwide, long-term supply agreement for microfilm products.


    Under the agreement, Agfa will manufacture microfilm and related photochemicals for EPM, and EPM will distribute these products worldwide under its own brand name Imagelink. As a result of the new arrangement, EPM will be able to assure the long-term continuity of supply to the market and Agfa will increase its microfilm production significantly. The parties expect the new product arrangement will become operational in mid to late spring, 2013.



    "Microfilm based archiving continues to be an interesting niche market," says Louis Kuitenbrouwer, Vice President Marketing & Sales of the Agfa Specialty Products business group. "Combining Agfa's longstanding experience in high- quality film manufacturing with EPM's strong offering to the preservation and archiving market will provide customers the best solution for their long-term product and support needs. The higher microfilm turnover of Agfa will support the continuous utilization of our film manufacturing facilities."



    Tim Mortenson, Vice President of Global Operations of EPM, added: "We are looking forward not only to offering Agfa's existing microfilm products under our own Imagelink brand, but together with Agfa, broadening the product range and choices available to customers. These Imagelink branded extensions to Agfa's historical micrographic product lines will enable us to continue to meet the archiving and record preservation requirements of our customer base with the same excellent product quality and support from EPM they now receive."



    Imagelink is a registered trademark of Eastman Park Micrographics.

    We have sold such a product for many years based on Agfas Copex Rapid, but then sales declined and Minox´s MOQ for a custom manufacturing were unachievable. The results were amazing for Minox and are unmatched until today.

    hi umut

    i speak on the phone once in a while with someone who owns/ runs a microfilm company, and she uses this film.
    microfilm is what is used to photograph written materials ( books documents &c ). i don't think it is the same "stuff"
    that is used in a sub-mini camera.
