    Yes. With some great contacts and assistance, we found a new sponsor for the ULF sheet film deal (post J&C) and contracts between this entity and Kodak are being prepared as we speak. We postponed making the formal announcement about the structure of the deal after being informed of the improvement to TMY. Considering the serious commitment necessary to bring this deal forward we took a break from the festivities to make sure that the new film is the real deal. I am happy to say that it is and we are moving forward. More to come shortly.

    Cheers!

    Shutterbig has already agreed a review; Frances is waiting to hear from David Corfield; and we'll certainly give it some thought for the site.

    I've always noticed the same thing (which is why I never use them), but then I look at John Sexton's print and they are anything but...

    Although, given that it's 2007 and this is an updated B&W film, I'm tempted to try it.

    Using film since before it was hip.

    Will there be a way to tell from the box if you are using new or old Tmax400. I'm looking forward to trying this, as I normally use 400 speed film

    Following the earlier posts to Kodak links would get you to a link to this .pdf, which shows new packaging details.

    I presume bulk rolls will be available, unless there is something I missed in the press release.

    I'll definitely try it.

    I can see why T-Max films work for John Sexton. I think he likes to start with something fairly neutral, photographed in relatively undramatic light, and he creates the drama through detailed local manipulation in the darkroom. That linear spectrum, B&W video look, contributes to that initial neutrality that then can be transformed into something else.

    I think he's been shooting more Tri-X lately, though, or maybe he's just endorsing Tri-X. Maybe I'll drop in on PhotoPlus and see if I can ask him.

    While I'm an Ilford man, this is still great news!
