I was under the impression that no film is hugely popular in Australia! (or in most other places unfortunately)
Seriously, I suspect the reason is that most people voting in the poll are processing and printing their own work, frequently in formats larger than 135, and so the BW400CN is not much used or appreciated here.
well film certainly has been hit hard down here but i still process a few hundred rolls a week. nothing like the golden days of processing a few hundred rolls an hour.

leaves me with Delta3200 only. But after Neopan1600 died I couldn't shoot any 1600ISO film on auto DX code in my 3 Oly mju zooms. These little wonders cry for 1600 film... tears in my eyes... If superia1600 will be killed, there's nothing auto 1600 left, not?
Aren't there stickers you can stick over film cartridges to fool the DX code reader?
yes, there are roger!
when a friend hiked the AT and brought a re-usable camera with him
we bulk loaded armloads of film, and scratched the dxread into the cartridges
it worked great ... lots of ways to trick the reader ...
I think we should start a new thread : The next pessimist who should just shut up, start buying and
using film and darkroom paper, and contribute to its popularity and future viability, rather than undermining it and discouraging another generation of potential customers. Who should we vote for first?
