Thanks for posting. This interview covered different information from his presentation which was posted a week or so ago. Interesting info on CHS II and SCALA and the EU regulatory regime and its effect on the industry. Mirko has a refreshing attitude, from all appearances. My shipment of FX39 II arrives today, coincidentally. I should probably make a more concerted effort to support them.

I use FX39 and their Rodinal a lot. The films are really at the slow end for what I shoot, which does limit their appeal, sadly.

I do all my own black and white developing at home.

I really appreciate and respect with what Mirko is trying to achieve. It isn't easy being a small manufacturer.

They are working on higher speed films, too. We will certainly see more, new films from them in the future.

Good news! I look forward to them coming out then.

Adox has my support. I recently bought a box of 4X5 CHS 100 II. Maybe today I'll shoot a few sheets.

Watched both interviews. Quite a balancing act they have had to keep doing past 10-15 years. Wish them luck in future, seems uncertainties continue in supplier side.

That reminds me I need to finish my roll of CMS 20. It might be really interesting.... Or a complete bust! It'll be fun.

+1.
Both his presentation at the photofair in Helsinki (see the other thread) and now this very detailed and informative interview offer lots of excellent information. Not only about ADOX, but about the challenges in the whole industry. The enthusiasm and strong commitment to film and us film photographers by ADOX is really encouraging. Great people.

Cheers, Jan

Don't forget their papers .
Not only MCC, but also MCP and LUPEX are really excellent BW papers. And I think we can expect the same for their new Polywarmtone paper, which will be introduced this year.

Thanks.
It is always very interesting to see what they are doing. Their open and honest communication behaviour has to be appreciated.
And they make much more progress than Film Ferrania. And even more important: They already have more than 20 different excellent products on offer. Film Ferrania currently: none.

Cheers, Jan
