    Seems to me Kodak discontinued Plus-X in 4x5 format this past year -- it's probably getting pretty scarce by now. For a 100 speed 4x5, I'd suggest giving J and C Pro 100 a try -- everyone I've heard of who has used it has liked it, and the price is seriously unbeatable.
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    Yes, Kodak did discontinue Plus-X in sheets. However, you can try J&C like Donald says, or there's Efke and possibly Ilford FP-4 (great film if it's still made in this size).

    There might be a few others I can't think of at the moment; perhaps others will know.

    Kodak has indeed discontinued Plus-X in sheet formats. However be advised that the emulsion as well as the substrate used in the sheet film was quite different than that used on roll films.
    I love the smell of fixer in the morning. It smells like...creativity!
    Truly, dr bob.

    Once again, we see the "wisdom" of Kodak, discontinuing one of their most popular films. I have to wonder, are they deliberately trying to commit corporate suicide? Meanwhile, Freestyle or B&H may have some in stock. Sigh. At least we still have Ilford FP4.

    Gustavo,
    I used to love PXP and shot it exclusively with my 5x7. Since it disappeared, I've been shooting tri-x 320 rated at 160, developed in pyrocat. I have to say I like this better than PXP. Unless you're tied to an existing project, you might want to give it a try...
    Take care,
    Tom
