    Without any official first-hand info would anybody put valuable time and money on this and change to a different material (contemplating other routes is a different matter) or buy bricks of tech-pan?

    according to two posts on the Olympus Users forum, one an answer from Rochester-
    the other from Kodak in Australia, Tech Pan(but not Kodachrome) will be discontinued over this year in the US. It is only in the land of Oz that Kodachrome is being
    discontinued.

    it's not a plan - it's offical :-(

    howdy folks this my first post so please pardon me.

    the discontinuance is as follows:
    12/04 tp 120
    4/05 tp 135-36 and bulk rolls
    6/05 tp 4x5 and 8x10

    the kicker is kodak is suggesting tmx as the replacement.

    well, it didn't work for panatomic-x and i can't see tmx subbing for techpan either.

    that's my two cent. hope it helps.

    Not to worry. There are always bigger cameras.

    Don Kirby, who uses the film a lot, sent out this reply that he received from Kodak regarding the discontinuance of Pan F this morning

    "Kodak has preannounced the discontinuance of Kodak Professional
    Technical Pan Film. 120 size will be discontinued in December, 2004,
    135 and long roll will be discontinued in April, 2005, and sheet sizes
    will be discontinued in June, 2005. We are sorry for any inconvenience
    this may cause our customers and expect that Kodak Professional T-Max
    100 Film may be used as an alternative for some applications.

    If you should have additional questions, please be sure to revisit our

    Ok, this sounds a *lot* more reliable than the information we had so far. I never had much luck with this film but not having the option anymore is hard to swallow. Maybe I buy a brick and start a collection of discontinued films.

    New maker

    Hi

    I think that some other film maker will take the Tech Pan and make a good film similar to it for the freaks using special films.

    It's OK, but it gave me a shock to be announced that Pan F will be discontinued...and that Kodak would do it was even more scary.
