    None exists. TXP was the last stuff and they discontinued it about a year ago. Sorry. There some colour and a bit of slide in 220, that's it.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    Hyperbole: 1. obvious and intentional exaggeration; 2. an extravagant statement or figure of speech not intended to be taken literally, as “to wait an eternity.”

    I have a supply of TXP 120 and 220 in my freezer, I bought out 2 stores when they made the announcement. I don't have 20 rolls of 220 and it's not for sale. Possible OP did not know all the 220 films were discontinued in the past several years.

    I take everything literally because I have Asperger's. Sorry.

    Nope, I know it's discontinued. Just fishing for someone with a freezer full and an empty wallet

    No need to apologize. I almost wrote the same thing!
