    I found this on flickr : http://www.flickr.com/groups/4663835...7631286906180/

    ADOX Fotowerke GmbH says:

    "is there any possibility that Adox buy the rights and keep the production of Efke IR films, or even develop a new recipe for this kind of emulsion? "

    Denise,

    Efkeīs IR was the only real IR film left giving results by far superior to the two "near IR" options still out.
    Remanufacturing it is possible for ADOX.
    At this point it is not on our agenda though.
    We need to solve the problem of coating on a small scale first.
    At present we are preparing sample emulsions in our emulsion factory to be test coated on various mid sized coating machines which are located in Europe and looking foreward to cooperating with us.
    This is scheduled to take place in November.
    If this works out and if we are able to produce mid sized quantities at a working price (which means the resulting end user price is bearable) it would be possible to take a 400 speed emulsion and sensitize it with the IR820 sensitizer.
    We might do this simillar to Ilfordīs ULF runs by colecting orders in december, making the film in january and shipping it in march.
    Specialty products like these are our target.
    Itīs fun to make them.

    Mirko

    I saw the ability on the website for them to make paper but I didn't know that also meant film.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    As to IR emulsions, you are spot on, each film has great value, especially to those who use it. The problem with IR emulsions is that just not enough people use them I'm afraid. We are more than technically able to develop, coat and produce a full IR emulsion, the problem is that we would never get a return on our investment in developing the product and the time sourcing and approving the raw materials required, ask yourself this, would you pay $ 15 to $ 17 + for a single film?

    IR is also especially difficult to sell through the supply chain, as it has a shorter date life than conventional emulsions and really needs proper storage.

    We do sell an extended red film in SFX, in 35mm and in 120 and yes, it is not IR, but this product is part of our current portfolio and therefore is part of our commitment that we will not discontinue any product in the current portfolio.

    Probably not what you wanted to hear, sorry.

    Dear Simon,

    What about 25 iso film from Ilford? The marked for it it's bigger than for IR, see how popular is Adox CHS 25 (Efke 25), many photograhers love it and buy it, including me. There are not many 25iso emulsions to choose, now Efke/Adox 25 is gone! Make please classic 25iso emulsion and I believe you will have many orders.

    Mirko if you have capabilities for all formats but 127, does this include 220?
