    Plus-x 35mm will be discontinued.

    For those who like to shoot plus-x in 35mm, buy it now as it's slated for the chopping block.

    Frankly, Kodak has been sending mixed signals about Plus-X for a bit. But it looks like it's finally official:

    I've always preferred FP4 to Plus-X, but this is very sad news all the same.

    Kind of figured it was going this way when 1) Arista Premium was introduced in the first place, and 2) Arista Premium 100 was then pulled while leaving the 400.

    Got hammered for this observation eleven months ago,

    From a 12/08/2010 post:


    "So did anyone else notice that Kodak Plus-X film has now been relegated to also-ran status on Kodak's Professional Black & White Films webpage?

    "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?"

    This was pretty much posted to death a few months ago, at which time I confessed to buying up 7 tins of 100' (arista). I will love it until it is gone.

    Very sad; very sad, indeed.

    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. "
