    That is a US rule, not a Canadian one.

    Oh interesting, and annoying... well I'm sure that blaze stuff is the same, at least he's able to get it.

    How long do you think a patent holds on???
    The NEW version?
    I doubt there was a patent on a variation. If it were it would be gone long ago.

    In this field raw product availability and not patent issues would be the issue.

    Ok, good to know. Well, I still want the new formula haha. But I want a LOT of formulas like all of the E6 ones... I want to make my own... I digress...

    Just received my Ultrafine plus 100 today

    I just received my 5 rolls of Ultrafine Plus 100 120 film today and did a little comparison. I don't have any Chinese (lucky or Shanghai), but do have some fresh bought Arista EDU 100. I removed the wrapper and about the only thing alike is the color of the backing paper. The glue that holds the wrap on the film is very soft and almost gooey. They are both on plastic spools, but the Arista(Foma) has a cross slot for the wind tab and the Ultrafine has a cross. Also, it looks like the Arista is either wound tighter on the spool or is a thinner film/paper combo. I'll know more when I process it. I have a sneaky feeling it comes from the people with yellow skin, but I could be wound since I have nothing to compare to. The gummy glue is the clue I'm going by.

    Just FYI that yellow skin comment was a little racist and kind of offensive. I know sometimes people aren't aware when they say offensive things(like me with almost everything I say), so I'm saying this more as reminder but not at all to be a jerk.

    Stop complaining about film prices in USA. Here in Brazil we pay 15 dollars for Tri-x 120 and 10 dollars for Acros. We dont have Rodinal or any other developer except d76, which costs 25 dollars a gallon pack.
    The cheapest way to buy film here is getting from eBay from USA, paying 50% more as import taxes.

    BTW, all chinese films sucks. I only use TMAX 400 and Acros 100 in 120 and Tri-x, double x and acros in 35mm.

    I think Stone said something about tmax and dd-x, Now I'm souping Tmax in parodinal getting good results.
