I am Bumping along......
I just received an email from the Folks at Lomography.
I had inquired about LomoGraphy X-Pro Slide 200 film if they had experienced this "Yellow" problem with the film they sell and have not heard of the "Yellow" problem but are very concerned about it, they told me it is against company policy to state where the film comes from but that is OK.
What is very reassuring is that have told me they are going to check their film stocks by processing in E-6 to be sure they have good proper film stocks, they have stated that defective film stocks are of great concern and that they will only sell film that works correctly.
I find this activity on the part of the fine people at Lomography to be most excellent, this shows a very honest, Stand-Up, Straight-Shooter type of company that cares about its clients and fans.
I will post the email I received from the fine gentleman at Lomography who is in charge of film, I have asked his permission to post the email, and will likely post it later, I figure it would only be polite to ask first.
Lomography currently has no more or very little X-Pro Slide 200 in stock and is awaiting for more film to arrive, it is kind of interesting that a lot of vendors who sell CR-200 and X-Pro Slide 200 are awaiting the arrival of new film stocks.
Perhaps AGFA, Maco/Rollei are taking care of this "Yellow" problem that has affected some batches of their slide film?
I am certainly glad The fine folks at Lomography show profound interest in the "Yellow" Problem to make sure they don't sell any messed up film.
Have any of you folks inquired with Maco/Rollei about some of their "CR-200" being "Yellow"?
Agx has mentioned the possibility that Agfa Belgium purchased some of the Master Rolls from Agfa Leverkusen when they were in insolvency? I remember something really profound about my two 35mm CR-200 rolls that were yellow, the film edge markings said "CR-200 Germany", the package said film was from Belgium, could it be that the bad batch was indeed German made, shipped to Belgium then shipped to Maco/Rollei in Germany? I think I am going to see what type of base this film is coated on that I have, Tri-acetate? would be German, PE1 Polyethylene would be from Belgium.
Perhaps we are on to the mystery of who, why and where the bad "Yellow" slide film has its origins......
