    But Tri-X is far more forgiving in development, reacting less prominently to agitation changes, etc.

    You'd have to ask yourself whether it'd even be possible for Ilford to get all of the materials they need to make their film without Kodak!

    I think the film world is a lot more inter-linked than we even know, maybe even more than they know. Coating small batches at home is one thing, large production runs are something else entirely. I have no doubt, as Stone believes, that Ilford could probably ramp up their machinery. But that requires additional raw material that has to come from somewhere. All it takes is one small bottleneck in the supply chain somewhere to gum up the works.

    But then, perhaps it is best that we don't know. Besides, someone somewhere has conducted the risk analysis and has come up with a plan...

    I suppose you're right about the raw materials, I hadn't thought of that. Then again, whoever supplies kodak now, could in theory simply switch to ilford, they would need to find a new buyer to cover the cost of maintaining the amounts they currently creat (base material and raw chemicals etc) so the only issue would actually be the initial financing to purchase the larger amounts at the start up of a bigger run, which would probably be easy to get a loan for since you could prove a need existed and being the only game in town, the others (Adox / Rollei / FOMA) couldn't do it I don't think, not to the same degree that ilford could.

    Anyway it's all speculation, thank goodness we don't have to worry about that

    Yes, if TX were to go I'd feel as if life was nearly finished. But alas I exist only as an empty shell of a being already, since the loss of Verichrome Pan. A bitter disappointment to be sure.

    Sometimes I think they modeled Eeyore after you...

    I had to look that up. A donkey?? Just today you were calling me an elephant. I'd have preferred that as it fits much better. There's not a bit of donkey in me.

    Eeyore is of the same sort of archetype as Charlie Brown. He's a skeptic and I'd venture apolitical.

    more importantly, I think, is that Eeyore is a "cup half empty" kinda guy.
