起先是在色影無忌討論區看到一篇說:愛克發膠片品牌重出江湖ㄅ!欣喜之餘,還是不忘先查證一下,Google了一下沒找到(可能關鍵字下的不好),把原文看仔細後,找到了出處為Photo Marketing Association。如果我的英文沒有問題的話, 原先以為已經倒台的AGFA,在重組之後將會繼續生產各式底片,對底片愛好者來說應該是繼Fujifilm宣佈將開發Velvia II(RVP 50)之後,另一個大好消息了。(繼續閱讀......)

自己開始玩底片機之後,用的底片多是KODAK和Fujifilm這兩家市場上的主流品牌,AGFA倒是較少接觸。不過前一陣子耳聞AGFA ULTRA將要停產時,倒是買了10卷回家屯在冰箱過,結果只拿出來拍了一卷 = =||,只覺得顏色相當飽和濃艷,對紅色很敏感(不過看網路上說AGFA是對黃色敏感),但還談不上太多的心得。後來有想要購買APX黑白負片來拍攝,但在店家哄抬價錢下(印象中一卷開價100還是120的樣子 ......),便索性作罷。現在聽到AGFA底片恢復生產,我想以後該會多嘗試AGFA這家德國牌子的底片,尤其自己對Scala這款黑白正片一直都感到挺好奇的。

AgfaPhoto brand resurfaces

The AgfaPhoto brand for imaging products is back. AgfaPhoto Holding GmbH, the parent company of the collapsed AgfaPhoto GmbH, has licensed the brand to several companies, reports PMA European Newsline. In spite of legal disputes on the brand rights with Agfa-Gevaert NV, the company that sold its imaging business and certain trademark rights to AgfaPhoto Holding GmbH.

plawa feinwerktechnik GmbH & Co. KG of Uhingen, Germany, now markets digital cameras under the AgfaPhoto brand, while Sagem Communication of Paris, France, a member of the Safran Group, has acquired the exclusive license to use the AgfaPhoto trademark for their range of personal photo printers. Sagem will produce and market 10-by-15 cm personal photo printers under the brand in Europe, parts of Africa and Australia.

AgfaPhoto films (including the Vista line, CT Precisa, APX b/w films and the black-and-white slide film Agfa Scala Professional), single-use and analog cameras as well as a range of batteries are now available from the newly formed Lupus Imaging & Media GmbH & CO. KG, Cologne, Germany. The company is run by the previous AgfaPhoto managers, Markus Ludwig and Holger Pusch.
