    Thanks for taking the time and making the effort to gather the information. Very, very appreciated.

    So....as I understand the current situation, TriX 320 in 8x10 is now only available by special order?

    Not discontinued, but "harder" to purchase?

    However, as is the case with TMax 400, perhaps B and H will continue to have the film available. As discussed, B and H must order film in very large quantities, and as has been pointed out, store such films for eventual sale. However, if the price at B and H is similar to that available by special purchase, then no obvious problem, correct? Why go to Keith if B and H has one's preferred Kodak 8x10 film at the same price? However, if B and H decides not to purchase in large amounts and store the film then all bets are off.

    One must suspect that it is surely time to very seriously consider the alternatives, i.e., Ilford, Foma, or eventually, Adox CHS and Pan 400-all in 8x10 of course. Considerably less money, and readily available at almost any time from multiple sources.

    I am accelerating my migration to Ilford HP5 and FP4. The difference in contact prints on Azo/Lodima using Amidol made from negatives between such Ilford films and Kodak's are, to my eyes, not different enough to merit the added stress of wondering about the availability of 8x10 sheets-and there is always the noted price difference. Naturally others will feel very much different.

    Thankfully those friends who use 4x5 sheets are currently unaffected.

    Matt beat me to it but generally, I can ship from the states for about 30% less than buying from a Canadian supplier, even after the shipping and duties are included. Most stores have agreements with manufacturers and cannot buy from anybody but official suppliers - thus, Nikon lens caps are $7-8 more than off eBay but if Nikon found out a store was buying caps from anybody but them, they would pull the distribution agreement for all Nikon products. In doing so, any camera or item will not carry warranty from Nikon (all of the major manufacturers have similar agreements). Nikon Canada won't work on a Nikon camera which is not purchased in Canada, even if you are willing to pay 100% of the costs, so being an official store is a big deal. Costco is not an official supplier of almost anyone (in Canada, they are official suppliers of Nikon in the States), which is why any camera, TV or electronic device only has Costco's warranty, not a manufacturers warranty.

    So, for film, there is not a lot of market in Canada for film compared to the USA (we are 1/10th the population) and stores would never risk losing official supplier status by going outside of official channels. Just economies of scale. I was looking at a lamp on Amazon and it was $21 in the States, same lamp on Amazon's Canadian site is $67.

    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    Fairly certain that's a mistake, one I'll for $50? I think they were probably inputting the 4 or 5 roll box price

    OK, I dropped by Glazer's.

    There has been a run on fast 8x10 film. I got the last box of HP5. Of course they are set for 4x5 film. They are good for Fuji slide and Kodak negative emulsions. They've also received a shipment of Rollei infrared, in 4x5 and 120.

    Dear Mr. X,

    All the active catalog numbers for 2013 are now listed on the Kodak Professional Films web page on Kodak.com.


    Hope this information is helpful.

    WHERE are those catalog-numbers??

    My experience was that for a price quotation Kodak sends you to their distributor/retailer, but they ask for a catalogue number before they disclose any prices, and send you back to Kodak to ask to disclose that catalog number. As friendly people at Kodak Rochester are I don't like this kind of play.

    Thank you so much!

    I always looked for such a listing. It would be great if Kodak could now do so with other products or finally release a pdf of their current catalogue.
