    Plus-X is gone. I can't believe it!

    It just struck me.
    This is impossible!
    The Black and White scene without Plus-X. McDonald's without the Cheeseburger. Disney without Donald Duck.

    Get over it. I adored the stuff too, but there are lots of excellent choices out there. Change is not all bad....

    Yes, even Madonna has been substituted by Lady Gaga so anything is possible. I guess.

    It stinks all right. At least we have FP4.

    Was checking some older negs of mine thinking "that PX is a great great film", dropped a roll into OM-4 this morning only to read this. Crap.

    It still in some stores. There is stock in both locations I shop, here in Montreal. I still have 700' in the freezer so there is no need to resort to fp4 yet. I will probably go strait to acros anyway....

    When they dropped their B&W paper I moved to FP4 and HP5 and never looked back. Went to Ilford paper and chemistry also.

    It appears they are going to continue discontinuing products before they attempt to sell what's left of their film business.

    I've really grown to like Fuji Acros 100. I'm also eagerly awaiting the arrival of Adox Premium 100 (AKA Agfa APX 100 part II) so there are still choices.

    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).

    I think the aerial rolls are still available. If so, you can still buy a massive quantity...
