    Apart from their News pages apparently not being updated properly, for being a CORPORATE website, absolutely!, I've definitively seen a bunch of cases that are a lot worse...

    This has been all been very bad news, not least of course for the Fotokemika staff in Croatia. I for one am going to sadly miss the Adox Fine Print Vario Classic which I’ve been using a lot in the last few years. While the MCC may technically be a better paper in regards a fuller range of contrast, (and another one I like), for me personally, Fine Print has/had a very special tonality, and was quite pliable with different developers for print tone. Really good for detailed shadows. A recent commission was to print a lot of work for a client from the early 70s (5x4 portraits) which had to be sympathetic to original prints done at the time. Worked perfectly. However, in the UK was difficult to get ready supplies and think I ended up buying all the available 12x16 paper from UK suppliers just for one job. However, always a bit nervous of every batch as they do tend to differ in exposure and contrast.

    Will be missed Mirko. Good luck with all your other and forthcoming products!

    I will not miss Fotokemika's Efke...
    I had some problems with Efke 25 film (adox CHS 25), mostly I got many white spots after developing, but when I changed the water on destiled, all spots have gone.

    Just bought the last 4 50 sheets CHS 50 5x7" (and 1 50 sheets CHS 25 5x7") from FotoImpex, Berlin - probably just to make sure that at least some of my prints are made from this quite famous emulsion.

    I can't believe a superior product like that is up and gone. I wonder if Fotokemika (Efke? - or whoever is going under) was managing their business properly. Something doesn't seem right.

    It isn't and won't be gone. I'm not sure where in the 37 pages Mirko explained, but MCC and MCP are coated in Germany and are just fine. It's the Adox Vario papers that were coated by Fotokemika and will be gone.
