    New product offering from Wittner-Cinetec.

    Anyone up for a 100 foot roll of Agfa Aviphot Chrome 200 35mm in Non Perforated film?

    Not sure who would want 35mm non perforated film but here is bound to be a need somewhere......

    I wonder if Wittner-Cinetec might offer a 100 foot roll of this film in 46mm non perforated for those that "Roll their Own" 127 format film?

    Now if these nice folks would offer sheet film sizes that would totally Haul Ass!

    Many thanks for the contribution, John.

    Besides, this film has a market - at the moment - which entirely leaves the consumer demand aside. Even if all other slide film had to go out of production - or become so expensive as to be a luxury for the happy few - this film should remain in production "forever" or at least until its base market remains analogue.

    Thanks for the sample pics. The film looks quite "usable", no particular color casts, maybe a bit grainy for a 200ASA film but difficult to judge without seeing an original transparency...could be something in scanning. I wonder if, in its original form as an aerial film, it would be used in a much larger format than 35mm, so that any grain would not be a significant issue?

    The base market for this film is changing rapidly.

    Well, in addition to photographers, there'll soon be demand from a whole different group of people. After all, the main reason why Wittner does have this film in its catalog is that they are just about to offer it for motion picture use. Some of you might have noticed that in Wittner's catalog there are already mentions (however no prices yet) of Aviphot in super-8 and 16mm. There is real hope that it'll be offered in a lower price than the other color films available at the moment. Because it's reversal, it's something many small format users are most interested in -- after all, then there is no need to first digitize the film before being able to project it.

    However, because of all this I wouldn't expect too much from Wittner concerning different film sizes. After all, they are first and foremost motion picture film company. But if AgX is correct about the changing trends concerning aerial film usage, maybe Agfa doesn't mind other companies having interest in distributing this film in different sizes -- provided of course that they order large enough quantity of this film?

    That Maco so far did not offer any of their colour films as sheet film might already be an indicator on the market stuation.
    Alternatively you might cut it down yourself from a 9.5" spool.

    Thanks for the Wittner link. Finally I found a reliable shop selling Orwo 54 bulk rolls within EC.
