    S-A if you call FS they will confirm they will no longer carry the US supplied Arista Premium (aka Tri-X). Though when its all gone, I suppose it can be re-produced by say a company in UK or Japan, etc...

    It should be clarified that this is specifically about arista premium as a private label of Tri-X and not 400tx itself. The AP thing is old news anyway, they announced it sometime last year.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Yea I think tri-x will be around as long as Kodak is, and probably even after in some form, as it's one of the most loved films that has ever been produced. Just this arista premium version won't be, a logical move by Kodak, as it's half the price of kodaks official rolls, but a terrible thing for people and programs that depend on these lower prices. My film and darkroom budget hasn't increased for the classes I teach in the last 3 years, while these costs have gone up 30%. When the time comes I guess the students will learn on something like foma (bah!).

    Thanks! I was surprised to see "Arista premium is the last of tri-x..." in your earlier post upthread. Wondered if I had missed the apocalypse.
