    Agfa APX 100 back?

    Looking at the Agfaphoto.com website, APX 100 is listed in the German online store (along with a few other films). The site is dated 2011.
    Macodirect.de lists APX 100 as new for November.

    Are we seeing a comeback for the German market, or do they have a lot of old stock in Germany? If this is a comeback, I will definately put in a big order with Maco. They do ship to the USA.

    Maybe they found a lost roll that was stored? Would be awesome if they brought it back. I love agfa panchromatic films. I'm currently shooting through the last 200 ft of an Agfapan 250 cine reel. Just wonderful tones.

    I see some evidence of it in English, too. This just seems surreal to me, so I won't hold my breath.

    No trace of AGFA 25, though... bummer.

    I long thought when AGFA was in the market back a few years ago, that their films were outstanding and in fact underpriced for what you got. It may have been due to something I heard, that- in Germany- comparative advertising was illegal or largely so; a product had to stand on its own merit. Purely speculating here...

    Man, I would LOVE to see APX 100 return. Never shot the 400 but I bet it was/is(?) good.
    I would love to use the "FP" flash setting on my camera, but I cannot find "Flash Powder" anywhere... such is life.

    I have one or two 100' rolls of TURA 100 35mm film on ice which I am pretty sure was APX 100 since the spectral responses were identical. Time to thaw it out and shoot!

    I have a couple of boxes of 4x5 in the freezer. I agree it's wonderful film. Bringing it back would be awesome.

    Not so sure about APX 25 though. I heard wonderful things about it but an ISO 25 film is just so slow I'd find it almost useless for most things regardless of how nice it looked.

    From what I've been told at Freestyle and from what I can gather from the Adox website, APX 100 will be available under the Adox Premium Pan 100 line. I don't know when they will be available stateside, but I hope it's soon.

    All APX 100 available today came from freezed rolls prdouced in 2005. Mirko Boedecker from fotoimpex tries to reanimate APX 400 and 100. A first test batch of APX 400 is out of a small test production.

    Re-animate? Start making it again?

    If he does, please make it available in 4x5 sheets!

    For me APX is a past. I wouldn't start using it again, I'm now in perfect relationship with TriX.
