    Yes, I split orders between B&H, Adorama and Freestyle all the time. I buy my Acros from B&H because it's cheaper than Freestyle. I usually wait until I have more stuff to order so it makes the order worthwhile. JohnW

I'm thinking I just have the wrong developer (have tried Ilfsol 3 and DD-X which the latter should have worked but apparently not). I just pushed PanF to EI 100 in Rodinal and got much better results (price aside).
    I've had decently sharp results developing Acros in D76.

    Oh yes, my sharpest neg of 400 ASA/ISO was from tmy-2 [TMAX400], and i am very happy i did buy a lot of this film in the past, i hope Fuji/Neopan can keep that Acros in production whether in 120 or LF, it is really a fun film to use.

    I will keep buying film as long i can use them, and as long they keep them in production.

    It seems that now that Fotokemika has left the market we have:
    Kodak
    Ilford
    Fuji
    Foma

    Other than Rollie Foma makes all of the house brand 120s, I am not sure who makes Rollie, some may be orphaned rolls of Agfa, over the years may have been coated by Fotokemika.

    I have seen any Lucky or other films from China, dont know if China still makes any film.

    Foma house brands seem to be the cheapist. I happen to like Foma 200 and 100 in 120 and 4X5, I also use Foma 400 in 35mm when I want an older looking film, Trx from the 70s.

    Who makes Adox products? Need to know that Rodinal(Adonal) will be made somehow.

    If they go out of business I'll petition ilford to buy the formula, Rodinal must survive! Haha

    I can't get Rodinal even if it is still available and in production, even another formulas that are similar to Rodinal such as Adonal and Parodinal and such.

    Well, my only solution and i am almost 99% closer to it is to buy the chemicals to produce Rodinal, i checked the formula and bought the chemicals, what made me laugh is someone here links me to Parodinal formula instead of Rodinal even i asked about Rodinal only, how funny.
