    The Plus-X aerial rolls do not use the same emulsion as Plus-X in smaller formats.

    True but it's close right? Just a difference in red sensivity, I suppose.

    Too bad that something like this is accepted so "stoically", soon other films will be gone too. Is this irreversible? I guess we'll have to make do with what's left. I'm new to film, just last year, and this is my first loss.

    More like McDonald's without the Crispy Chicken sandwich or Disney without Hannah Montana (these might be too kind compared to their sales volume, actually).
    What do you mean by "where have I been"? I'm still missing Kodachrome. And in 10 years I'll still miss Plus-X and Kodachrome.

    It is easy to be stoic when one realizes that the game was over a long time ago. Plus-X had long ago been relegated to a casual mention at the bottom of the Kodak web site listing of B&W film. That was perhaps 2 years ago. That is when I stocked up on 120. PX 120 is basically unavailable today unless one wants to pay inflated rates on ebay. I just stocked up on 135 PX. That is still in some stores at "normal" prices. But I might have cleaned out one of the NYC retailers. If you want to shoot PX, order some soon!

    At least Plus-X was not as "unique" as some other films. FP4+ is very similar, but even better in my opinion.

    I hate to see Plus-X go but there are other films. Just use other films.

    Us old buggers have had lots of changes. In the 50's it was Verichrome Pan roll film, gone.
    Then I did 40-50 years Kodachrome and Plus X, gone.
    Still using Tri-X but it is not the same emulsion as it was then.
    Moved to Ilford papers, film and chemistry but now Cibachrome/Ilfochrome papers and chemistry gone.
    Testing Fuji now but astia gone.
    Do about 10% digital these days. Should get a large format camera and start coating my own glass plates, ha!
    We will carry on with what is left. E-6 is about dead as well, no more slides.
    Best regards,

    Sorry, what do you mean by 'aerial rolls'?
