    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.

    I don┤t think they would discontinue one of the New Portras anyway. That would be too sad. By the Way, Kodak stocks are down to 19ct now.

    can't play this, they announced the dead of one of my favourites:
    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum37/1...continued.html

    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?

    from 2.5x.5 - 20x24 ( and larger ) and everything inbetween ... they could sell a master roll in a matter of months.
    whenever there is a special order of film, people come out of the woodwork and buy a freezer full of it, or a handful of boxes.

    i find it crazy that they don't do something like that, seeing people who shoot those sizes yearn for film to shoot
    and often times wait and wait and wait for the special orders to come around ....
    I'm a huge fan of Tri-X 400 and would love to see it in sheets, so I totally support this. 320 just isn't quite the same.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.
