    Looking at the recent posts, I was struck by the name of Panatomic-X and what a brilliant bit of marketing this is. If you were going to introduce a new film onto the market, what would you call it to guarantee sales?

    For B&W- Silver Bullet- most people spend decades searching for it.
    For Color- Chromakode- for those that miss Kodachrome.

    Well, if you want to appeal to all the hip young kiddies, how about:
    Kodagram
    Facechrome
    Impossibly Silverchrome Holgography 3000-X (every new digital camera has to have an X in it, so should film I suppose)

    I always wondered if someone who put Panatomic in their Nikon Photomic were at danger of radiation poisoning...

    At first I thought it would be funny...

    Pancreatic - You don't have to love it but you need it.

    Then of course an obvious good name...

    Pancreative - Unlimited creative possibilities.

    But by now it should be obvious... If I were to... It would BE Panatomic-X.

    Minor White / Maxor Black

    Maybe Dorothea

    Or how about Edward?

    PanThom as opposed to PhanTom. I'd buy that.
