Default Who's left in the E6 biz?

Who's still producing E6 film. Here's my attempt at a comprehensive
list:

Kodak
Fuji
Konica
Agfa
Ferrania

Any Eastern European E6 producers? Or any others?

Maco doesnīt coat for themselves, itīs some bulk stock cut down.

No. certainly not.

Macochrome is Color, E6, Fomapan R is probably some kind of bw movie
stock and not available in sizes beyond 135.

Anyway Fomapan R is cool stuff.


Indeed - good sharpness and grain, nice tone, and stunning latitude
for a slide film.

This is confirmed, and further it cannot be developed to a negative in
conventional B&W processing due to a colloidal silver antihalation
layer. The only practical way I know of to get a negative from Fomapan
R is to develop in a color developer with the same black dye couplers
used in XP2 or BW400CN type C-41 B&W films, then bleach and fix as for
C-41. For B&W positives, of course, you use the regular first dev,
non-halogenating bleach, reversal exposure, second dev, fix process that
would produce a positive on any B&W material -- but the bleach step is
mandatory to remove the silver AH layer.

Anyway Fomapan R is cool stuff.

Never tried it, but I might have to get a short roll and try it in my
Minolta 16 cameras once I have the resources to do reversal processing
-- using Diafine for a first dev should give EI 160 to 200, and grain
would be determined by the second dev, which could be a super-fine grain
soup like Microdol-X or Ilfosol.

Opinions expressed are my own -- take them for what they're worth

Or you could send it to Duggal in NYC I highly recommend them.
