    That's also my excuse for when the missus can't fit any shopping in the freezer, "but honey, I NEED those 50 rolls of bulk-loaded 135 TXP, those 15 rolls in 120, and that pack of 50 sheets". If it were gone for good, I'd just use up what I've got and move to HP5 and TMY, I'm not so picky about 'tones' as others, I just shoot the stuff.
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    Aha! I've never used FP4 - I need to give that a shot.

    And for the many recommendations for HP5+, thank you for reminding me of it. It was my go-to film before I betrothed myself to Tri-X. Typically, I use Delta for 'softer' portraits and Tri-X when i want things to be more stark.

    In this case, I am shooting some women who want a sort of 70s edgy dark and sexy kind of feel, so then plan is to shoot with both Tri-X and Delta 3200. The Delta is for my own learning; inspired by the posts on my other thread on shooting it with a mamiya 645 pro.

    I should also add that I am NOT a pro and have no aspirations to such. I just like taking pictures of people/things and love everything about film and film cameras.

    This is what I was thinking too. I would be sad to see Tri-X in 120 disappear.

    Here's another source for you, and it's fresh and in-stock (at a great price). Plus shipping is fast and all around the world.

    Don't get me wrong by my earlier comments about it not being the end of the world, 120 Tri-X is by far my most used medium format film, I would be sad if I couldn't get it, but it wouldn't stop me from making pictures.

    Or freestyle, their arista premium line IS Tri-X but cheaper!

    Same here. I have a stash of TMY at home thanks to a generous friend, but normally when I can't find Tri-X I use HP5+, and the resulting prints are definitely very similar, to the point that I look at prints from both Tri-X and HP5+ and it doesn't even enter my mind to think about what film it is.
