    But I don't think I have ever heard a complaint about the quality of Kodak products.

    I am of the opinion that Kodak are the highest quality and most consistent of any photo products.

    It's $6.99 at Henry's in Toronto, Canada, plus 13% HST, consider yourself lucky you can get it for $4.50......

    No, I never had a complaint with Tri-X. In fact, when living in CT, Tri-X & X-Tol was my favorite
    combination. But that was about 13 years ago. The correlation of price-to-quality, is that if I'm going
    to pay $5 or more per roll, I'll use Rolleipan films.

    In testing, I've found them to be consistently higher quality results from my Rolleiflex TLRs, Mamiya 645Pro,
    or Nikon N90s, over Tri-X. I still keep Tri-X in the freezer, as well as a couple of bricks of APX 25.
    If the lens doesn't read "ZEISS", then it just isn't.
