Has TriX in 8x10 be discontinued?
Please be sure that I am NOT trying to start any unfounded rumors.
I am simply reporting information provided to me by others.
I noted on the Freestyle site that no Kodak 8x10 black and white film is available. A person on the staff told me that TriX 320 and Tmax 100 in 8x10 has been discontinued. We have read that one can purchase TMax 400 8x10 as a special order at several different sites. However, Kodak already announced that TMax 400 8x10 would no longer be routinely available.
At the suggestion of the amazing sales staff at Freestyle I called B&H. They have TriX 320 in 8x10 on their web site, but have no information as to the expiry date- nor did the sales person have information about the film being discontinued. B&H and Adorama might simply be selling from stock that was purchased weeks ago. I have no way of knowing, and the helpful sales person had no information to provide either.
Anyone able to find out the answer, i.e., have TriX and Tmax 100 in 8x10 been discontinued?
AFAIK, Kodak 4x5 black and white film is still readily available. However, if (and thus far it is only a BIG IF ) the 8x10 Kodak TriX 320 and TMax 100 is no longer being made, how much longer will the 4x5 be available?
Once again so that all are aware that I am NOT starting rumors of any kind.
