I think some members thought I was joking when I recently referred to the Agfa smell. I have put this topic under General Yak as it refers to both 16mm and Super 8.
Just received from a well-known dealer "Gorilla My Dreams", a Bugs Bunny Super 8 in its original Techno plastic box. As I opened the hinge there was the familiar smell, I thought to my myself "Agfa". Pulling off a few inches and checking with my loupe there it was, in green "1 S". Yes Agfa, and still wonderful colour after all these years.

I`ve noticed it Maurice on 16mm and 8mm, not all copies though.

Best Mark.
