    Hopefully. Hopefully they are they are doing something with the
    new high speed emulsion technology on which they hold the
    patents.

    Perhaps your contact at Agfa might do us the favor of 'leaking' a
    little information.

    Perhaps they are preparing to "Shock and Awe" us with the
    announcement of a completely new line of films.

    Personally I think they owe us a progress report. If they have a
    cure for electronic cancer it should not be shelfed. That would be
    criminal. Dan

    A lot of this so called "bad news" is not news at all, but rumors perpetuated by some, intent on wringing their hands. Many businesses change the products they market. Many go through bad times, and come out of it.

    I recently asked a man who worked for Eastman Kodak about Kodak's B&W film production. He told me their coating plants are working 24 hrs a day. That won't stop the next rumor about Kodak cutting back on film production, though. Some people delight in this kind of thing, though I can't under stand why. It's so unproductive, and it takes our minds off of other things we could be thinking about, like that next award winning photo.

    Even worse - imagine the flood of emails and phone calls generated by that, flooding the customers services.

    It costs their money, their time, their nerves.

    Don´t let other do your job - if _you_ have questions or worries regarding the availibility _you_ should ask the customer service before starting a unproductive and baseless rumour and stressing other people nerves.

    Thus the guys at Agfa, Kodak, Fuji, Ilford will have to deal with only one customer instead of thousands and stop the rumour at the root or they´ll give substantial information. Only then you may go into public with the troubling news.
    Tschüss,
