    My daughters, bless their souls, bought me a second freezer for Christmas! I think I already have enough to fill it. I'll probably need a third for paper.

    Whats the alternative to stocking up when a film gehts discontinued? So far, I've been only buying stocks of film when its running out. I managed to reserve one large tray in the freezer for E100G and Astia. But I already found a frozen supper in it as well.

    The need of girls to freeze supper seems to exceed the appreciation of proper film storage.

    If we could trust Kodak we wouldn't have to 'hoard'. Sadly we cannot.

    I am glad I hoarded 20 rolls of Elitechrome and 20 of Ektachrome and 60 of Plus-x 35mm and another 25 of Plus-X 120. My purchase did nothing to influence EK but at least I got some before it died.

    Why hoard Plus-X when FP4 is a better film? I think so, at least. Ektachrome is more understandable, because of course it's a more unique film.

    I am glad you qualified your statement with "I think so" as my first choice would be Plus-X. However, did not stock up so, like many films that are gone, you use the next best thing. Ilford FP4 is a great film and a good choice.

    I used a roll of Plus-X (just the one) and it seemed pretty pedestrian to me. Then again, I used just one roll of FP4 and then not again for over a year, after which I gave it another try and used it a lot.

    Sort of ironic since you live in Rochester...home of Kodak..
    I'm in a suburb of DC and I've seen film in places like CVS but I usually order from B+H...more choice and cheaper...perhaps that's what really killing local film sales...it's not a day to day item for most people as it was years ago so the people who use it often do mail order (or go to specialty camera stores...but most of them have limited film choices.)

    Funny how a store can stock paper clips or clothes pins or some other slow-moving item and not think about it but they feel photo film has to (((FLY))) off the shelves of they can't be bothered.

    Hoarding Kodak = Killing Kodak?

    Expiration dates.

    Plus x was a great film, shot it and arista rebadged stock of it until the end.
