    "It's now listed way down at the bottom under the heading "Other Black and White Films" along with T-MAX P3200, and now merits only two lonely sentences of product information description.

    "I wonder why that is?"
    I made the same observation about a year ago. Nobody commented. You are very observant and very intuitive!

    I wondered a bit when I saw Ken's original comment on this but put it off to his antiKodak bias
    (JUST KIDDING!!!)

    Haha Ken, just pulling your missing hands

    This is sad news, I learned on Plus X when I had to talk my professor into it because TMX was required by the Photo 1 program where I studied.

    It was discontinued a while ago, mid-2010.

    Truth be told Brian, I wish that hadn't turned out to be the case.

    The ironic thing is, with the benefit of hindsight my guess would be that the reason Plus-X was so relegated was that Kodak had probably just then coated the final runs. They knew it, but we didn't. We were just making educated guesses.

    If true, or even just close to true, it makes you wonder what other Kodak films are already dead men walking...

    Go to the Industry News forum and read the thread on more rumor mongering.

    Bruce! Haven't you seen? In yet more proof that Sean is the world's finest Web Admin, he has graciously upgraded his software such that poster hand amputations - both self-inflicted and group-inflicted - are now scoped down to the individual thread level.

    But I love thier honesty:

    "While there is no direct replacement for PLUS-X 125 Film, you may find ILFORD FP-4+ — the world's finest–grained black-and-white film, to be a reasonable alternative. "

    Not quite sure about that.. I already figured sometime ago that Plus-X supply had dried up and moved to T-max 100 and Paterson FX39 1:9-1:14 combo ..and I can't complain.

    I'd say I am not surprised but I am a bit sad that it's gone. The I-told-you-so guys are probably feasting on jellied eyeballs and beer right now.

    I'm surprised our friends haven't graced this thread with their good presence yet.
