Agfa APX 25 discontinued : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

I've heard from a source in Germany that Agfa have discontinued their APX 25. It was a great film. :-(

Over on Photo.Net there is a discussion of this. The US rep is taking information on people who want it, to try and keep it in production.

Thanks. I went over there and posted the address to Agfa in Germany if someone wants to complain directly to them.

Here it is again:

This is true. I checked this information with an Agfa sales rep after reading it in a photography magazine and he confirmed that the information was right. I immediatly went to my local supplier and bought 20 rolls I keep in my freezer. The supplies should still go for a while I'm told, but after that we can all weep. The reason I'm told is due to insufficient demand.

Here's what Agfa says....

Thank you for your recent E-mail concerning Agfa film.

Agfapan APX 25 was a much admired part of Agfa's family of professional quality black & white films. However, sales volume in recent years has declined to the point where it is no longer possible to continue production.

We regret to inform you that we recently discontinued production of APX 25 in all formats 135-36, 35mm x 17m and 120. Orders for existing stock will be taken until supplies are exhausted. No other black & white film products are affected.
