A lot of questions find an answer on our website or in our annual report, which is available on our ‘Investor Relations’ pages.

Agfa-Gevaert sold its worldwide “Consumer Imaging” business group in 2004 to the AgfaPhoto group of companies (not affiliated with Agfa-Gevaert). In connection with that sale, a Trademark License Agreement, dated November 2, 2004, was entered into between Agfa-Gevaert NV and Agfa-Gevaert NV & Co. KG, as Licensors, and AgfaPhoto Holding GmbH, as Licensee, giving AgfaPhoto Holding GmbH, a German company having its registered office in Cologne, Germany, the right to use and to sublicense the trademark “AgfaPhoto” for products having a photographic application, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Trademark License Agreement. Agfa-Gevaert declines any liability whatsoever with respect to or in connection with any “AgfaPhoto”-product. Agfa-Gevaert does not manufacture, market, distribute or sell any “AgfaPhoto”-products. Agfa-Gevaert does not provide any service, any support or any product warranty with respect to any “AgfaPhoto”-product. Any request for support or information regarding “AgfaPhoto”-products should be addressed to AgfaPhoto Holding GmbH, www.agfaphoto.com
Agfa-Gevaert has sold its Consumer Imaging division to the independent German company AgfaPhoto in November 2004. We are therefore unable to help you with your question. We advise you to address your question to AgfaPhoto via their website (www.agfaphoto.com).
Agfa discontinued its consumer scanner product line (SnapScan, DuoScan, Arcus), as well as its digital camera product line (ePhoto, StudioCam) in September 2001. Therefore, we are no longer able to provide any support. Agfa does not keep digital cameras or scanners, nor spare parts for these products, in its stock. A number of companies (such as VueScan) offer drivers that should allow older scanners to work with recent operating systems.
Agfa-Gevaert has sold its Consumer Imaging division in 2004 and we no longer have data on antique cameras and other photo equipment in our archives. We recently donated our collection of historic cameras to the Fotomuseum in Antwerp (Belgium) (www.fotomuseum.be). A lot of information about Agfa’s old cameras is also available on the internet (e.g. http://www.agfatheo.nl). Details on all Agfa cameras can be found in the book “Agfa, geschichte eines deutschen Weltunternehmens von 1867 bis 1997”, written by G. Kadlubek and R. Hillebrand.
