    I honestly don't know - shooting nothing but B&W for past year.

    I can even get it at the local drugstore.

    You are indeed lucky. I can sometimes get Ektar in a camera shop 50km away, but other than that, it is a trip across the border to Detroit or 4 hours down the highway to Toronto. Kinda less convenient than the local drugstore. :pouty:

    Film supply for type 135 is still good over here.

    At most communities of about 10,000 people you can get an assortment of CN and CR films by Kodak and Fuji, APX100, two tastes of Ilford films and at some places even type APS.

    Given that you can still buy it in 8x10", of course it's in 35mm. You should go look at the big online stores before asking here.

    Since B&H and all of the other major vendors have it, it's on the market. Just don't panic when they say "discontinued" on an item temporarily, that's a B&H-ism that seems to mean about as much as "out of stock and we didn't bother to reorder yet". See the flap over 120 Reala last week.

    I thought APUG was the place to ask questions. Given that the OP is pretty new here, (very new... this is his 4th posting) I'd rather entertain his question than tell him that it is not welcomed here.

    I'm all for people being welcome, but I'm also for people googling.

    Let's see ... I've got it on hand in 35mm, 120 roll film, 4x5, and 8x10 sheets. All but the last I can
    purchase at the local camera store.

    I can't buy anything but Fuji consumer film at local stores. There's a place in Atlanta rumored to have more, but I've never been able to find it. But I'd rather order it than drive into town.
