    Our design criteria for Kodak papers was that all negative films should print well. IDK what Fuji and Agfa had as design criteria.

    That is about all I can say.

    So you buy "our" paper, we buy "your" film. International trade.
    Interestingly, the most recent stock we have just had delivered says.....Made in Brazil!

    As regards Fuji CA, this is no longer avilable in sheet form, certainly in the UK.........

    AFAIK, Kodak closed the plant in Brazil. And, when operational, it made only B&W paper. I was told directly that all Endura was made in Harrow.

    PE,

    The Endura paper I have in stock, purchased Autumn 2008 is 'Made in England' - Is the Harrow plant dedicated to paper production?

    If I have understood it correctly, this ends Fuji's desire to cater for the amateur who needs sheet paper. It worryingly says a lot about what Fuji think of the sales to the amateur market i.e. not economically viable.

    It's my impression and it's not based on any figures I have, that Fuji has almost all of the mini-lab markets Maybe it's just as well that Kodak doesn't have a substantial portion of the mini-lab market in the U.K. otherwise both might abandon the amateur market.

    Given the size of the amateur market for RA4 sheets, it remains a concern as to how long Kodak sheet paper might be available and/or what the price might be if there is no competition.
