    My sentiments exactly. This has been going on for some months now. As soon as some poor photographer has his feelings hurt if he feels Kodak is not supporting him he stops buying Kodak products. Sure is a great way to help Kodak survive. Howard Tanger

    So when Fuji and Kodak are closing film industrial sooner or later and then we are left with Ilford, how can film survive then? We keep saying film is not dead, but from what i say t is dying slowly and it is just a matter of time, more announcements these days from big 2 companies for films, so i feel within 2-4 years we are left with less and less options and we may not get interested much to shoot if we don't have enough film to shoot or can't find film here and there as we want, i have 3-4 favorite films, if those are gone then i don't want to use another films even good enough.

    4x5 Kodak film might well be available for a time to come. However, as we have already noted, larger format Kodak film might vanish-or be available by special order only and at prices that are prohibitive.

    I have switched to Ilford film, and I am not sorry. Ilford films are fine in 8x10 and larger, and the price is much more reasonable. It is surely time to stop complaining, and to begin to support a company that appears to be dedicated to supporting us. Kodak was great. The King is dead, but long liver the King.
