    The mouse is no longer with us, through no fault of Ilford. The cat however was greatly relieved to hear the news.

My color work, of course, remains the exclusive province of Kodak. I absolutely love E100G and E100VS. When these two are gone, I will hang up my color shooting.
    Completely agree about Ilford. I've been using FP4+ as my medium speed film since Plus-X was discontinued and love it. Just shot my first two rolls of Pan F in a couple of decades and looks like great results there too. I have found I can get slightly better grain and another stop of effective speed from TMZ than Delta 3200 but that was a long time ago - maybe I should try Delta 3200 in 35mm again. I do love it in 120.

    As an aside about the color, I love those films too, went to E100G when Astia was discontinued, but since the demise of Ilfochrome I am changing to neg film except for the slide film I have in stock, of occasionally for projection. Try the new Portras, either 160 or 400, for a neutral, fully but not overly saturated neg film and Ektar 100 in place of E100VS. Oh, wait, that won't help you if Kodak dies...

    I like Ilford a lot and appreciate their sticking to what they know and do best, black and white, which is also my first and main photographic love, but I do enough color that I really wish the prospects for Portra 400 and Ektar 100 were brighter than they look.

    And I believe they are quite serious about their "last man standing" plan.

    I hope to be one of their last customers.
