    I don't understand the disconnect either. My favorite paper has been Polymax Fine Art and I've been buying old stock when I could get it. A decent alternative is the Ilford papers of course.

    Thanks for answering my question, I was talking about the whole digital thing, it appears that 2004 was the year then. I wish that I got into film before 2004, but then I was only a teenager. Now I'm close to 20 and care about it now, to me it seems a little too late. But at least I get to shoot Kodachrome and get to shoot some of the old stock that is left.

    It's not old stock.

    Kodak still makes a wide variety of film. There are new films (Ektar 100), recently improved films (TMY-2), films that reflect continuing evolutionary improvements (the Portra series) and films that have been at least "tweaked" in recent years (Tri-X 400).

    And they still sell a lot of film, although certainly not as much as in the past.

    In case you haven't already gone there, here is a link to that part of Kodak's site that deals with their "Professional" films:

    Ya I've been there, but I guess I should have been more specific, when I mean old stock, I mean the E-6 slide films they've discontinued. Such as Ektachrome in 100, 100 plus, 160T, 320T, and 400X. As for black and white, HIE and Technical Pan.

    I have about 800 shts of a 1000 sheet supply of Kodak Polycontrast IV RC. I wish Kodak still made this paper. I think that I might start looking for old stock to freeze, I love it.

    It began in the late 1990s. The loss of selections started to happen big-time in the early to mid 2000s. I think Verichrome Pan was one of the first classic, highly-sought after films to go after many years of stabilized availability, around 2002.

    Thanks for the information.

    Wasn't Kodak Elite a graded cool tone paper?
