    You think Ron's going to buy it out personally? :-)

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    I entered to internet at 1998 , started to interest with alternative processes , wait to buy a polaroid camera than a good german camera. Than I wanted to buy PN 55 and Polaroid stopped the production and I never been able to use it. Than I interested in Kodachrome and they stopped the production and it went away. Now I want to try Ektachrome , my camera broke down and it falls in to danger. I hope I will be able to buy a Leica before Ektachrome to be decided to stop.

    Dont know what systems you were using but they were very very badly designed and would have been an easy fix.

    Im guessing they were legacy systems in a banking/manufacturing environment?

    I understand. I just started getting used to Agfa APX 100 when it was discontinued. Really loved Forte Polywarmtone too, then it went away. I just have to keep working with what we have. Fuji makes really nice E6 films, so at least there is that.

    Thanks Wayne! I reserved some 8x10 and 11x14. Would have done more but then there's no prices listed. I'm pretty sure whatever the price though, I'll be able to afford 100 sheets of each.

    I sure do love Adox. Every day a little more. If Kodak bails, I hope Adox gets a crazy thought to buy up all the Kodak equipment
    I love the wilderness and I love my trail cameras, all Fuji's! :) GA645, GW690 III, and the X100 which I think is the best trail camera ever invented (to date).

    The problem isn't one quarter of operating loss. It is the long term trend, i.e. 98% drop in sales with no end in sight that is the real problem

    Yeah, I registered over a year ago. I forgot about it, actually. I hope that this flies, Polywarmtone is the one thing that I have not managed to replace at least reasonably well.
