    estate sales of cine hoarders.

    I know people who have fridges.

    I think Kodak cancelled it several years ago only 5222 and the two Orwo mono cine left cepting Russian or Chinese production.

    Id get some colour as well if you order.

    My best chum emailed me when the Swiss centre sent his kodachrome cassette back earlier this year...

    Hey Sam,

    As others have said, that film is discontinued... The only cine film that's B&W is 5222 (Eastman Double-X) it's a beautiful and amazing film, 250 Daylight, 200 Tungsten.

    Give it a try if you have no luck with your search. (And if you shoot 4x5 PM me for details about getting as a special order I'm organizing).

    Best of luck!

    Is Tri-X also gone to the grave as motion picture film? 16mm/8 or 35mm?

    Unfortunately Kodak stopped making this film. I mourn its loss. You could check with companies that sell short-ends to see if they still have some.

    Oh, I made mistake, sure PX is gone, I was thinking of Double X. Stone is right about DXN. I expose this film between ISO125 and 500 and it responds very well.
