    One thing that is missed here is that Kodak had the following plants:

    Rochester US
    Colorado US
    Canada
    Brazil
    Australia
    Harrow England
    Chalon France
    China
    Oklahoma

    Plus operations for packaging in Mexico.

    They had chemical plants in Rochester, Tennessee, Texas and Arkansas, all of which are either closed or spun off.

    Today, only Rochester is partially active for film. Paper is coated at Harrow and Colorado (space is leased at Colorado after sale of the plant to Wellstream / Onyx) and the rest are closed. The same is true of Fuji. Many of their plants outside Japan are shuttered.

    Current Agfa Precisa CT100 is definitely marked "Made in Japan" (I'm looking at a box in front of me).

    PE, I have two interesting old boxes from Harrow in front of me:

    - A Panatomic-X (Develop before OCT 1963)

    - A Plus-X (develop before JUL 1958)

    The Plus-X is an interesting species. It's a '1.6m Refill', 'Unspooled length - Darkroom loading for use in miniature camera cassettes'.

    When did the manufacturers stop making these?

    I'd guess the early to mid- 1960's? I think that they were originally intended mainly for loading specialist cassettes such as the Leica type?

    There was Polaroid. Both b&w and color. I'm not knowledgeable across the board but I think they made the highest iso b&w at iso 3000.

    Talking about old films, there was Perutz in Munich. They were legendary for some color slide films in the 50s, I think the company was absorbed by Agfa in 1960 or so. Did we mention Ferrania in Italy and Bergger in France?

    Fuji still makes FP-3000B so 3000 speed black and white instant film is still alive and well. Their FP-100B is discontinued however, just FP-100C color still made. Both 100C and 3000B are still made in Japan, not sure exactly where.

    Robert Burley has a series of photographs, "Disappearance of Darkness 2020", from the closed Kodak plant in Toronto and a few from Rochester.

    Who makes film

    I have Rollei 400 IR film in 4x5 that is on a VERY thin base, must be re cut from big rolls that are used to make 120.
    I would think if Efke made it, it would have the thicker base of Efke films, and probably the second class quality of emulsion spread that Efke had last time I used it.
    Efke is made in Belgium? That is where Maco is.
    The Rollei 400 has been a really good film, must not be made in the same operation as Efke.
