When a 36 exp. roll of Portra 800 sells for more than $10 I have to wonder how much longer it will be around. I can see a time when all of my film cameras will only have b&w to shoot with and all color work will be digital. Does anyone know whether Agfa-Gevaert is still coating film? What ever became of the Foto-Impex project to coat b&w films similer to APX 100 and 400 using old machinery from Agfaphoto?
    Provia and Velvia are not significantly more expensive than professional negative films, at lest not Portra and Ektar. I just checked Freestyle and Provia is actually slightly less than Portra. There are no cheap amateur slide films from Fuji anymore though. The death of slide film is due to vast improvement in negative film and consumer preference, not price.

    Why is this in the Fotokemika thread which has nothing whatsoever to go with color materials?

    Continuing the colour film conversation, which I agree has nothing to do with Fotokemika... AgfaPhoto sell CT Precisa slide film for about £3.50 per roll (from a ten pack) or slightly more for individual rolls. This is made by Fuji and is apparently a slightly modified version of Provia 100. This I think is the last cheap consumer slide film readily available. There is also the Rollei CR200, which again is under £4 per roll, but a slightly more niche product and not widely available outside specialist stores. I would say that at least in 135 format pro slide film is still significantly more expensive than colour negative.

    Actually that is one question i've never had a satisfactory answer for. Why the ridiculous difference in price between pro slide film in 135 and 120 format? Provia 400x is somewhere between £5-£6 per roll in 120 and over £10 in 135. Provia 100f is available for £3.20 per roll in 120, but £8.39 for 135! It is roughly the same film surface area and generally I guess 135 sells more, so production of canisters and packing material can't account for it. Also Fuji can clearly make slide film for AgfaPhoto at a fraction of the cost, so are they just trying to kill it off as a consumer product?

    Back on topic, I really hope this isn't the end for Efke.

    Not wishing to prolong color discussion in this thread, but actually Efke did supply a 35mm color neg film (C-41), Efkecolor Spektar 100, in the 1990's. Used some myself and still have a single roll in the freezer....results were good, although, from the appearance of the film and packing, and "Japan" in tiny letters on the cassette, it looks like rebadged Konica.

    Why not? What's to lose? Maybe they'll quit making film and paper if we keep asking?

    I called them twice - you can imagine how sad and depressive workers are. Not only company that they worked for decades is going down, but also they will lose jobs, and trust me that in Croatia finding another job is mission impossible. Croatia still need to wait for one year to enter EU - so small chance in going abroad.
    They told me that when final decision will be - they will inform public.
