    I don't care who makes what for whom. If there is another option out there for over the counter chemistry and it is competitive price wise then it's good for us.

    The whole point to competition is to bring about lower prices and improve quality which is why patents are usally time limited. If another manufacture can make equalivant products at a lower cost good for me. Illford, Fuji, Ansco, Clayton, and many others made a D 76 or Dectol clone.

    What no one can "rip off" from Kodak (only they can give it away) is their reputation, reliability, and the piece of mind the customer gets when buying their chemicals, film, etc. Thats worth something, for each buyer to decide.

    Availability is also important and it use to be in favor of companies like Kodak. This has changed a lot.

    Back to Kentmere - if that's not off topic - I notice my local camera store here is now stock a decent supply of Kentmere papers. Apparently Kentmere has a new distributor in Canada, and it is so very nice to have a local camera store that is maybe a 5 minute drive away stocking Kentmere papers.

    I haven't seen any Kentmere chemistry, but I plan to ask.

    I am always on the lookout for a better paper developer. Any particular Kentmere paper developer people might reccomend?
    thanks
