    The only ready available 127 too. The Brownie and baby Rollei folks aren't happy either.

    Are you guys nuts? Freestyle claims it's the machine coating paper that has become unsustainable. Not film. Not film. Not film. Not film. Paper.

    Thomas, I was about to post something along those lines! Fotokemika's papers are special and with authentic look..
    ...I still hope we are not left as Slavich only...

    As far as film goes, I shoot mostly slow ones under 50 and IR820 is ~ 1, so EFKE, Agfa-Belgium films are the only left.
    If You use old school cameras with top speed 1/500 and stop the lens only a tiny bit then films in the range 1 - 50 are the golden ones.

    I would really like to stock up on Varycon. I was looking at my paper supply and I have gone through a fair amount of my supply.

    If you read further in this thread, you will see that someone in touch with people at the plant claims that they are also considering cessation of all production, film and paper.

    Everyone at the factory has said this all along; it isn't really news. Maybe they are right, and maybe workers are accepting rumors that are not really the plans of management. We don't know any more than we did.

    This is grim. My wife has a baby grey she would love to shoot again, and I bought a 4x4 holder for my Beseler for just that purpose. Perhaps someone will begin to slice film like the 8mm folks did once. You'd have to establish a demand price floor for slicers to show up and that price wouldn't be pretty, especially for something like 4x4.

    Look on the bright side.

    The equipment for slitting and chopping film and paper may go up for sale.

    An enterprising person could buy them and set up a small operation making custom film and paper from larger stock from another company. It could work.
