    Type 59 still doesn't show a discontinuance notice on their website.
    But Polaroid doesn't have ANY type 59, nor do they have type 79. If Polaroid doesn't have it, it ain't around, except old stock.

    Just because they don't have something now doesn't mean they won't have it in the future. Polaroid has been going through some moving exercises for the past six weeks and my rep told me in early December that things would be spotty re production an delivery through early February.

    As for T59 its beyond me why anyone would use it instead of T79 ... assuming 79 is still available.

    Alex, got it ... never thought of that as I use it strictly for lighting tests.

    Another person (over on Large Format Forum) reports getting a box of T79 with a "product discontinuation" sticker on it. That would be it for 4x5 size polaroid color materials...all gone.
