    The most important information is: Will that film have a future? Will it be re-produced (sic!) if the current badge is sold out? I remind the offensive marketing about R³ and the smaller one of RPX 400 too. If a photographer selects a film they want to have a film with a stable production about say at least 10 years. And not the out-selling of some leftover film.

    Nothing is guaranteed, especially if you wait to see how it does and no one buys it because they are waiting to see how it does...

    But, if that's the issue, surely the simple answer is to support Ilford's range of films. Harman have given the reassurance that none will be discontinued, they are quality and consistent products, and, while nothing is guaranteed for ever, I have met some of the Directors and Managers and believe their honesty and dedication.

    If we prefer another choice, we have some Kodak and Fuji films, all consistent products, and even if some may have cast doubts on their longterm future, they are still available here and now.

    I don't doubt the enthusiasm and dedication of the little producers in trying to market these new products, and I enjoy experimenting with the new films at times. But I wouldn't use an unknown film for the holiday of a lifetime or my daughter's wedding photos when the reliable options are right there....it's just common sense.

    Uwe, do you care to comment on your previous statement regarding RPX 400 discontinuation?

    Had it been a holiday of a lifetime I'm not sure I'd even bring a camera. That would probably be in the way of experiencing the holiday.

    The new boxes are possibly the first sign of a new management strategy of MACO - appareantyl a stable production of their products is planned now. Thank you for that advice.

    In that context RPX 25 may be for completing the product line, to have a medium speed a high speed and a low speed film.
