    We are currently coating what you can see in the trailer: A simulated film or paper emulsion. We use the same batch of gelatin, same strength/viscosity and layer build up but there is no silver or other expensive chemicals in. The outcome is a cyan tinted paper. This is fine to check for coating defects, streaks and everything but no one would buy it I am afraid ;-)
    But I got you and we do have similar plans once we go to the machine with real silverhalide emulsions.

    Recently also a very good artisan beer made in Fribourg, la bière du Chauve, moved into the ex-Ilford complex. It seems it is a good time to be in Marly :wink:

    Mirko, any chance you may be interested in having a chat with FUJI about acquiring their FP100 equipment??

    There is much more behind making such film than "acquiring their FP100 equipment".
