Hi,

I was taking a look at the Spanish film "El Pico 2" (1984, photographed by Javier Aguirresarobe, AEC) and was surprised when I saw the following credit regarding the film stock: 320 asa Gevacolor and Eastmancolor.

I had never heard of it. Most of the film looks soft and low-con, like the old AGFA XT-320, but I can't judge it well from a DVD.

It most probably is Agfa XT-320.

The merged company is Agfa-Gaevert. The still films were manufactured at the Agfa plant & the movie films at the Gaevert plant.

I've just checked a previous Spanish film from the same director called "Colegas" (1982) and the credits say that it was shot on GEVACOLOR 682. It can't be the XT-320 as well, as I believe that it was introduced around 1984. Perhaps it was just regular Agfa stock (the film has its trademark yellow-brownish look).
