    Agfa doesn't have a great history of updating it's websites on time. The rumour seems to be it's been killed in 4x5 size? Considering they just released a new 400 speed version I can't see them killing the smaller formats. I wonder if this means that 9x12 will still be available?

    They sell boxes of 25 at my local shop for 10 bucks. I'll have to ask next time I go there, whether or not it's getting the ax.

    I have not yet seen any official confirmation of that. But there are rumors that APX Sheet Film will be dicontinued. And that wouldn't be a big surprise for me.

    I prefer T-Max and sometimes Delta, which are not included in the poll. Why?
    Aren't they real B&W films? :-)

    EFKE PL100 and PL25 isn't included either, nor the MACO films???

    Last few weeks I've been using MACO IR820c and EFKE PL100 only - I ran out of FP4+...

    And what does this mean? There are still plenty of Films to chose from. We shouldn't be over-pessimistic. Products come and products go. Recently introduced B&W films include Maco Cube 400, MACO AURA, Acros, ORTHO+ and the Kodak relaunches. Although the variety declines, there are still innumerable combinations of Film/Developer around. Go ahead and try something new! That keeps you from rusting :-)

    Hear say is always suspect. I checked that other website and found nothing and the Agfa website also says nothing.

    Please substantiate.

    I just tried that link and it won't work. Hmm. Anyway, there's a thread in the Large Format Forum on photo.net containing an email from Agfa confirming that manufacture of APX 100 has been discontinued in 4 x 5. There's no mention of any other sizes.
