    About the only thing I'd buy an extra freezer for is Tri-X (the older stuff), and I guess the newer stuff too, since the old stuff is already gone.

    Still haven't found a paper I'm in love with -- just a few I hate. Agfa RC 310 came close, but I don't really like RC for my high-end work.

    Illustrators Special ( gone )
    Portriga (changed, then gone)
    Elite ( gone )
    Original Galerie (gone, gone, gone)

    APX 100 is unique because of it's color rendition. Try it and weep. Shoot a red haired girl with freckles.

    Taste Agfa MCC while you can.

    Kentmere is a trove of fine stuff.

    I am generally a "be here now" type, but wish I had grabbed a few boxes of Kodak's PPF 120. Hmmmmm, that was a beautiful film. Gotten used to adapting, though, there's been so many color neg types discontinued, I stopped worrying.

    If I had the money & space (which I don't) I'd buy a lifetime supply of 8x10 TMY and Azo right now.

    I got to print on Portriga Rapid one time, and toned...it was very beautiful paper.

    I would like to get some EFKE film also, but its been out for a VERY long time.

    Also, AZO paper...now that its all gone I am nearly out, and cannot get anymore.

    Just in keeping with my other post, I can also make Portriga and Brovira.

    Please excuse me for not knowing how to interpret your statement. Are you professing your l33t photo-chemical skills, or advertising some service. And if so, how much would you change for a box of 100 8x10 of the above, approximately. I have a friend who might be interested.

    I also am content to go with what's available, and what I can make myself.

    The old Portriga was a great paper. I've seen prints on Velour Black and lament never having tried it myself. I've got some Haloid Industro, but it's gotten a bit foggy--still useful for some things though.

    If you're looking for the classics currently available, try Azo, J&C Exposition graded, Efke PL100, FP4+, TXP, J&C Classic 400. There's some really nice stuff out there.

    Get some amidol. Azo and J&C Exposition (Efke Emaks) look great in amidol.

    I would go for whatever will be sold cheaper so I can stock up perhaps enough in quantity. It's funny the "free" market seems to work in both ways when you look at the prices on Ilford and Agfa products.

    To chase the outgoing products/goods of which prices are sky-rocketting is not practical.
