    Discontinued B&W Film

    The attention that the death of Kodachrome has created peeked my interest. Are there any discontinued B&W films you really miss?

    Plus-X in sheet sizes...though FP4 does do the trick.

    Agfa APX 100. Never tried APX 25, but I know that it was beloved by many. (There is actually lots of APX 100 still out there in 35mm, I shot it mostly in 120.)
    Also, I am sad that I never got to try Verichrome Pan.

    HIE. The discontinuation of HIE was a crime.

    APX in any speed or size.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Technical Pan. I shot a few rolls early on. Amazing stuff. Plus-X is an OK replacement, but the look of Technical Pan was amazing.

    Never got the chance to shoot HIE, but apparently there's a replacement for it on Freestyle now.

    OOPS--I almost forgot PANATOMIC-X I learned to shoot on this , probably shot 5-6 rolls a week in the late 60's ASA 32 and very forgiving.

    Tech Pan is still out there but expensive. However, it is a bargain compared to the Agfa APX.
    The replacement for HIE is much slower and requires a tripod.
