AgX, as soon as I sent my last post I was sure someone would call me on it. Quite fair, but sorry, I can't verify any "new" companies, only new to me. Shanghai, Lucky and Shantou-Era are some existing film producers. My point was that most of the action in new traditional photographic development that I see (what there is of it) is Asian. Shen-Hao, Chamonix, Cosina, Fuji, and the previous Foto-man are examples of newer film products being brought to market there and I'm pretty unfamiliar with any American or European stuff that is new. Of course we still have Zeiss, Rodenstock and Schneider for European lens production. "I could be off" but that's my sense
