    Yes I had almost forgotten that they screwed up Chinon also. Chinon made reasonable, functional, low end cameras before they were made part of the Borg.

    Perhaps Kodak has a bit of HP syndrome. HP always planned based on their own internal surveys. As time went on, they had trouble focusing on what there customers wanted and they spun off their traditional jewels (Alegent) to become an ink reseller.

    Kodak had a main background in "cheep" cameras which could still work after a day on the beach. These days that role is covered by a cell Phone.

    C'mon, chin up, it's not yet a tidal wave with the youngsters; many of the hipsters, for example, seem to prefer (i.e. LOMO) film over D*@#*@l. Like my nephews and niece for instance. I gave each a camera and a lens or two. The results? Nephew #1 shoots only (post-Kodachrome) Ektachrome E100G through his Nikon F2A or F3HP; Nephew #2 alternates between PanF Plus, Tri-X, and Ektar in his F3HP; and my beloved Niece (the only one in the family) alternates Tri-X and HP-5 (she claims that she cannot tell the two apart? ) in her F2 Photomic. Sadly, though, the poor misguided soul prefers the look of digital shot with her D3000 to that of color film.

    It's still available at a company in the U.K, if you contact John O'Shea at Discount Films http://www.discountfilmsdirect.co.uk...hite_Film.html and place a worthwhile order he may be willing to ship internationally, he has 135 Ti-X too .

    There is still a lot of Plus-X 35mm in the supply pipeline. Get it while you can.

    Agreed. I just stocked up using one of the mailorder places... only to walk into my local shop and find that they have lots of it still on the shelf. If I only checked there first I could have supported a local family-owned business. My mistake.

    I wounder if Freestyle's Primum 100 is going away as well? Most folks seem to think it is rebranded Plus X, but perhaps it is make to order for Freestyle by Kodak. I tired a few rolls when it came to market a couple of years ago and seemed a lot like Plus X, but never really tested it.

    You are a lot late on that one. I managed to sqeeze 7 cans. As soon as I mentioned it, everyone else piled on.

    They still have single 24 exposure rolls left. You had better move fast on these.

    I managed to get 2x100ft rolls and 20 packaged rolls in 35mm. Add the 23 rolls of 120 I still have and that will be enough for me.

    I think the ORWO 54 will be my replacement for Plus-X.
