    Don't be too worried about Rodinal becoming unavailable, since the formula is published.

    Although stocking up on Ilford film may be a bit premature, at least the sales spike might be enough to woo a suitor for the company!

    If no one stocks up then Ilford film is really dead. There is a real need for the spike for Ilford to get a buyer.

    Without a buyer what do you think Ilford will do to their B&W film production line?

    A short sightness will lead to the conclusion of premature buying, but look further it is not. If everyone very coolly standing on the shore, holding on the purchase then your dearly Ilford films will be very maturely dead.

    "The reason I choose to get Pan-f is because it is the current slowest traditional b&w film in the market."

    Really? What about Efke 25?

    Excuse me - did I miss something here?! Fuji have discontinued Velvia 50? Surely not. If they have then it's time to give up colour photography altogether.

    - "Really? What about Efke 25?"

    I guess Pan F is the last mainstream ISO 50 film left. I've found out Efke is a lot slower and available, just like Gigabit film (ISO 40). A pro' (here I go spreading myths) told me that Konica IR750 has much finer grain than Ilford Pan F+, although is an expensive shot unless used for IR. Anyway, that's been discontinued. One of the slowest mainstream films available is still made by Kodak - an ISO less than 5 - called Positive Release Negative film. Can't see it replacing Pan F+ though.....

    Maybe it's just a typo. Snapper seems to be discussing print film - Agfa Ultra and Konica Impresa, both ISO 50.........

    Correction 1: I just checked FujiFilm website. Velvia 50 is not discontinued yet. But it could be winding down if 100F is widely accepted in the market. For now it is sure a good decision because a few photographers told me they don't like Velvia 100F.

    Correction 2: Pan-F is the slowest B&W film from Kodak, Fujifilm, Ilford, Agfa, Konica (Big 5), but not the slowest film in the world. There are a few other film manufaturers like the ones in East Europe and the ones in China. For some reason I usually don't include them in my reasoning, which is not really fair .

    Exactly also fuji just came out with the new film Fulji Velvia 100 and continues to come out with new film. Also for soem stock markets they will still only accecpt trannies as they say the current digital cameras on the market will not give them the quality they need.

    So I have no idea but what I do know is that I am stickign with film even if I have to coat my own plates! I have digital cameras and I do not like the quality.

    If Ilford, Kodak and the others go out of business then more business for JANDC. And I am already starting to move over to them. Support the small guy sand scre the big corporation that want to force this digi crap down your throats. And for chemicals mix your own or and viva PyroCat HD! As soon as I run out of my chemistry I am going to start using this stuff!

    So my point is there is always other options.
