The next show will take place in September 2018, but subsequent shows will occur in May. To accommodate the more frequent schedule, Photokina will take place over four days instead of the previous week-long opening.
Photokina will also be expanded to include more diverse media and a wider range of image-related technologies.

Adox Lupex Contact Paper
A brand new paper, currently only available in Germany, Adox Lupex is a slow speed contact fiber paper made with a silver chloride emulsion, similar to Kodak Azo or Fomalux.
Unlike traditional papers designed for enlarging, contact paper is designed for placing a large-format negative directly on the surface of the paper. Lupex's slow speed allows for greater control of exposure and provides more time to burn or dodge.
