I have heard a rumour that Agfa Record Rapid/ Insignia is discontinued.
Is this Fact or Fiction. I see that it is still stocked at B&H in limited sizes but perhaps this is the last of the remaining stock. I was hoping to use this paper again (after 4 years) sometime soon but if it is discontinued it will break my heart to fall in love with it again only to lose it forever.. Does anybody know if this terrible rumour is true?

In case anybody is interested I got this email from Agfa today:

Record Rapid paper is no longer available. It has been overtaken by MCC
(Multi Contrast Classic). For more information please connect to our
website: http://www.agfa.com/photo/products/paper/bwpaper/
Thank You for your interest in Agfa Product.

I guess that I was somewhat deluded to think that Agfa would continue producing such a nice product.... Its sad to see a company who once made the finest warmtone portrait papers available slowly giving up the game.

If only Bergger made 100 sheet boxes of their graded warm tone I could possibly afford to import it into Australia...

sigh.
