    What kind of developing is needed? Is there any specific reason its different from any Ilford/Kodak/Adox/Foma/Fuji offering? What are the archival characteristics? I'm not really a Kodak fan any more, after what they've done recently, so for that price there would really need to be a compelling reason.

    The $100.00 per roll price really gives one a sense of how much of the price of a roll of film is due to economies of scale.

    No special development is needed, its just black and white film. There are tons of developer combos and timings on the net, there is one dedicated eastman XX site, and a long thread over at rff.

    Eastman double X is cine film, but can be rolled to be shot in still cameras. It has a slightly different sprocket hole pattern, with rounded sides to accommodate the high speeds inside motion picture cameras. It is quite durable as well when handling.

    Turns out that Plus-X is gone because the one particular machine that coated it broke, and it couldn't be repaired any more, same as Efke. And Kodachrome was an EPA issue. They're not all bad.

    Really? First I've heard of either of these. Even if true there's a big difference between "couldn't be repaired" and "not economically viable to repair." Almost anything CAN be repaired, or a replacement built, but I can understand if it's not worth it. I like Plus-X a lot but FP4+ and Acros are both great films, Acros pretty much unique.

    At $100 for 100 ft this seems a bit pricey especially when you can buy short ends for much less. Check with Fim Emporium in New York City. Companies that sell short ends and other cine films have a rather fluid stock, so a particular film may not be currently available. Here patience is the key for really good prices.
