    Unique in NJ also stocks it for less than 5 bucks a roll in 120.

    At present I have 6 cameras loaded with Tri-X, 3 with 35mm and 3 with 120. In the last 45 years I have used it exclusively except for a few times that I tried T-Max and XP2 (literally a FEW times).
    In a world without Tri-X I guess I would go all digital!!!

    I'm surprised that you couldn't find Tri-X film. A quick check shows that it's available at Freestyle in 100' rolls for 35mm, in 24 and 36 exposure for 35mm rolls, and in 120 format. Great prices too. I like HP5, and it looks fine in Acufine and D76. While the negs look different than Tri-X, the prints are close enough. Tri-X is such a wonderful film that I'm sure someone will continue to make it even if Kodak goes away. Kodak could sell that formula for a ton of money.

    Yes! My mistake! (I actually knew he was looking for 120 but I thought arista premium was only NOT available in sheets, my mistake.

    Either way you can still get Tri-X there.

    Thanks for the sources! I'm still learning and discovering. I hit the big A first (because I needed developer, too), they and the other big A were out. I ended up buying from a cam store out of California via the 'Bay. But more sources = more stock.

    Funny, I almost solely use HP5 in my yashica mat 124g, though I pretty much stick to delta 100 in the rolliecord. I don't know why, it just feels right with those old gentlemen.

    But yes, looking for 120; 35mm isn't a problem - I have 25+ rolls of tri-x hoarded away. And not that it matters, but I am actually a lady. Though my horrible language might say otherwise. And I certainly don't mind being taken for a dude.

    If Kodak did go away, I wonder how quickly Ilford could take up the slack? Face it, I know that Kodak is a shadow of its former self but I bet Alaris is still selling LOTS of Kodak film. I suspect that we would all be in a big hurt for quite some time if Kodak did roll over.

    Agree...and TMax has a little more space for being slightly 'wrong' with development.

    While I'm sure this sounds like heresy to many, I'm usually trying to get a "look" based more on the subject and lighting than on any small differences between types of film. Once it's hanging on the wall, I doubt many people will be able to tell what I used.

    Agreed. And keep the heresy going, I would guess that 90% of film users don't see any significant difference between the "look" of films...and 90% of the remaining 10% of the film users only think they see a significant difference.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Pretty sure ilford could step up production rather quickly, remember kodak's machine can do a years run in 1-2 days, so even at full production ilford could run their machines to keep up with new demand. I'm sure they produce in batches like kodak (though not in one day) so I'm sure they could.
