    The next Kodak film to die? Place bets now!

    We might as well make a morbid game of this. May give us an idea of what we need to stock up on, too...

    Sorry, too morbid for me.

    I still have hopes that someone can rip Kodak's film business away from Kodak upper management in time so that it can begin to benefit from the uptick in the analog market. And that the manufacturing part of it is included, so any potential new owners are not forced to suffer the uncertainty of having Perez continue to control the production of the product they are trying to sell.

    (Well, one can hope, can't he?)

    Easy, BW400CN. The other films are just too classic at the moment.

    Maybe you should have said "Voted off the Island"?. Would have to be the BW400CN?

    If those in charge of Kodak looked a little bit outside of their box they would see that there is a resurgence (small at present) of traditional film they may well be advised put things on hold.

    Personally I like CN400 the one most condemned here. I can get superb B&W prints from it using my normal RA4 developer so would be sorry to see it go. Ilford XP2 has a different and a much more difficult base colour to deal with to get the filtration right.

    Might BW400CN just be the last Kodak B&W film left, if they really did abandon traditional B&W and make only the basic minimum of C41products.
    Thank God for Ilford and the little players.

    I'm not sure I want to play, it's all too depressing.
