    Some Kodak changes...

    Nothing too new here, mostly changing single rolls over to pro-packs. 8X10 shooters may want to stock up while you can. Odd, I thought E100VS was going to be totally discontinued, this makes it some good news...

    It seems only Portra and Ektachrome are left in Kodak 8x10. TMY is still listed on B&H's web site with a 245 box minimum order - and no quantity discount ... $18,000 / $7.35/sheet.

    Freaked me out when it has Tri-X 120 discontinued - it is only the individual rolls discontinued, you just have to buy a 5-pack to get it.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    I still don't think that can be a good sign. Better keep the demand up for those pro packs.

    So there will be no slower speed bulk Kodak 35mm B & W film available regularly any more (both T-Max and Plus-X gone) .

    I saw a bunch of discontinued Kodak items on a clearance list in my last package from freestyle. This answers my questions on why they were on the list. Bummer to see the changes but I buy at least 5 rolls of tri-x at a time anyway.

    Freestyle also often busts up Pro Packs to sell individual rolls. They do this with Acros. Not sure if some agreement with Kodak prevents that.

    Discontinuation of Tri-X in 120 is one thing I fear more than other film discontinuances.
