8X10 Agfa APX100 droppedgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I was just told by a retail photo dealer in Halifax, Nova Scotia that Agfa APX100 in 8X10 size will no longer be sold in Canada. Has anyone else heard about this?

The APX100 in 8X10 was also dropped from the USA market last year.

A well placed source in Kodak has told be that within a very short time, perhaps only a few years, there will be only a handful of large format films available. Primarily T-Max 100 in 4x5. Everything else from Kodak will be extinct or special order, and that will disappear in a short time.
Looks like we may all have digital backs for our cameras sooner than we thought.
Buy it now and buy a large freezer.

The Agfa 100 8X10 was also dropped in the German market. 5X7 and 9X12 are still being made.

I would imagine that if you were to get enough people together to make it worthwhile any company would make a special run for you. After all, if the are making it in 4 x 5 they are probably cutting it to that size. Shouldn't be all that hard to convince them to NOT cut it for a special run.
