Just bought some MCP :) Hope this test run goes through!
Has Adox abandoned the project of introducing ADOX PAN 400?
It would be nice to know.
My first guess is that money is the issue. The film market is shrinking faster than anyone, even the doomsayers, saw.
If you look at the required revenue vs expected return on a shrinking market it crushes the soul.
Would scores of us jump on it if it magically appeared? Sure. But we can't carry ADOX.
The loss of EFKE's microscopic production run capability was a bad blow.
From the old ADOX website:
"+++ PAN 400 is ready for production but due to the sudden changes at Fotokemika who manufactured the CHS line of films for us we had to prioritize and decided to invest in the remanufacturing of a 100 ASA material at first+++ "
That's why there is a no Adox Pan 400.But they gave us the ADOX CHS 100 II instead.
As long as Kodak floods the market with cheap TRI-X there will be no new 400 ASA film from any manufacturer.
