    AGFA 35mm Available in Rochester, NY

    Yesterday I dropped in at Rochester Photographic (rochesterphotographic.com) to speak with them about their services and get a price list, as their website is undergoing revision and isn't fully developed yet.

    What I found was that they carry Agfa APX 100 and 400 in 35mm. I asked about supply and I was told that so far they haven't had any problem getting shipments from their wholesaler (based in NYC), and sales are strong. So it's not as if they have a big stock that isn't moving.

    The person I spoke with shoots APX 400 when she does weddings, and prefers it to other B&W film, though she does like Tri-X as well. (But she didn't have much else good to say about Kodak!)

    I don't know if they will sell via mail order, and there isn't any e-commerce section on their website, at least yet. If they won't do mailorder but you want to purchase, I can do so and ship at cost, prepaid by Paypal (no credit card fund source), and I'll ship via UPS or FedEx so there's no USPS x-ray zapping. Please call the store for pricing, as film prices are not in the catalogue.

    They process b&w film in many sizes, including obsolete formats such as 127, 126, 828, 620. (I have prices on darkroom services.)

    I have no affiliation and have NOT used their services, so I am not endorsing them yet. It appears that it's an all-woman operation, which is refreshing for some reason. ;-)

    PM me if you have any questions or interest in having me tranship film. I'll be happy to ship to Canada via Canada Post when I do my cross-border shopping, but can't guarantee schedule. [GO LEAFS GO!]

    Go HABS go...

    In Montréal I don't have any problem finding APX 100 and 400 in 35mm, either cartridges or 100ft rolls, so if you need to skip the exchange rate and the border shopping, I can always help.

    From what I understand it is 120 (the only useable size for the new apx400...) that is extinct. So far, 35mm is there for the taking.

    GO LEAFS GO!

    Argh, better stock on 120 before it's all gone, then!

    Habs. Even Nordiques would be fine.

    Yes, 120 is "gone", 35mm doesn't seem to be a problem. But even 35mm is not easy to find at retail in some areas, especially smaller cities. For example, here in Rochester, this is the only retail locaction I've found that carries Agfa film.

    I talked to John Auer earlier this week and 35mm will remain in production. 120 is gone. Agfa's stock has been depleted. Whatever is left out there is all there is.

    Bring back the Jets and the Nordiques!!!

    I will have a look in my local Henrys store - every time I go in, the film shelf is getting prgressively eroded by a pile of... ink cartridges. Not even photo specific ones - the same crap you can get at Staples. Why does it need to be there, at a photoshop?
    They always had a pile of APX - no one seems to like it - I think I was the only guy who bought it. I think I should have a report by tomorrow night.

    What a world... film disappearing right and left, this company or that going under or running away from traditional photography... sports cars with two pedals...Stanley Cup in Tampa... some scary looking quartet of guys on horses, etc.

    Henry's here has always stocked Agfa for the school market. It's Sept and two things happen. School starts. Henry's puts RC paper on sale.

    It's always possible to order Rollei Retro 100 and 400 films. It's APX emulsion and they are doing the confectioning in Hungary now for the 120 rolfilm. So in this way small gaps in the market are filled again.

    Regards,

    Robert

    At 2-3 times the price of regular Agfa. What a deal!
