    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.

    Hoarding Kodak = Killing Kodak?

    I have 7 rolls of Plus-X, I had 9, shot 2 during a shoot I also shot Pan F+ with. Granted I developed both in Ilfsol 3 and not DD-X but I found Pan F+ to have less grain and still be sharper, in comparison I found Plus-X to be... Fuzzy... In comparison that is, it was still fine but not sharp and crisp like Pan F+

    I'll try my next batch in DD-X

    And if I can ever get my hands on some Rodinal... The suppliers have been out for MONTHS! I see it often referenced but haven't been able to buy any since I started home developing (about 9 months ago?).

    So I'm a Newb at that, I admit, but the comparisons were if the same shoot developed at the same time, so there aren't many variables...

    I tried Ilfosol-3. It sucked. I like D-76, HC-110 or Clayton F-76+ better. But Ilfosol-3 was not my cup of coffee.

    I hope we don't have to hoard Kodak developers.

    I read in another post that the company that makes the developer was not actually Kodak any longer and shouldn't worry as much about that, so long as the chemical company decides to make it anyway...
