    I have never understood why no-one from Kodak ever seems to appear here....surely it's a no brainer that this is an ideal way (presumably at little or no cost?) of communicating directly with genuine enthusiasts? I think that PE has said that APUG is read by Kodak people, but that means nothing.

    (OTOH, Kodak seem to have missed the obvious for years now, so maybe I shouldn't be surprised.... )

    Both, Adox CMS and Retro Retro 80S and some other films are in fact made by AGFA, so QC is top notch and more than whats needed.
    AGFA don't sell directly to end customers anymore, only biz to biz, hence You have Adox and Rollei doing what they are doing.
    Same story with papers.
    Basically murders how? Sharpness or some other benchmarker-based number? They're not even remotely the same kind of film. A Toyota murders a Ferrari on gas mileage too.

    You can't shoot everything with 80S.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    If film regains the popularity that other "forgotten" items have, such as vinyl records, Kodak could be on to something. Who would have thought in the late '90s that records would be as popular as they are now? Some 2 or 3 million vinyl albums were sold last year, more than in 1991. Same could happen with film as well.

    [QUOTE=jnanian;1320496]i find it very strange that they dismantled the whole processing side of their business,
    killed off paper, sold off the chemistry division, has discontinued emulsion after emulsion.
    then a month or so after they file for bankruptcy, say they are going to resurrect all their old
    emulsions in a boutique quantities ... they just raised their prices again by 15%, i can only imagine
    how much their new boutique line of film will cost the consumer. a 100sheet box of tmy has more than doubled in price in the
    past 10 years, if in boutique amounts made its going to cost 4x what i paid 10years ago ... in the middle of a recession, i don't think
    many people will buy already excessively expensive film.
    but then again, maybe they are just coming to their senses ?
    maybe they will sell master rolls of sheet film to our good friends in california to cut to custom sizes, notch and package ...



    Might be best just to chill on this one. I'm still looking for a press release. To date, this amounts to "unnamed sources say..." and may be what an over-refreshed Kodak rep said to an over-refreshed audience. Who knows? Back to warming up some film.

    You can't shoot everything with 80S.
    Yes, You can shoot everything with 80S, if You've tried it and dev in the appropriate developers., You would know it.
    On top of that 80S is sensitive up to 750nm, so its IR capable film.

    Some folks say that You can't develop everything in Rodinal but if You know what You are doing, then its like a walk in the park.

    Go ahead and see if she responds. I've seen the SMPTE notice, thanks, when I tried to drill down. I'm still waiting, though, for the OP to post a link to his source.

    Trying to compare TMax to Rollei based upon the requirement of enlarging 35mm negs its a pretty narrow perspective. TMX is very consistently mfg and remarkably versatile, coming in multiple formats, and responding
    in a very predictable fashion in many difficult technical scenarios. I don't personally do general shooting in 35mm
    either (though I have for expensive clients, when the look was appropriate), but do use it in the lab for various
    tricky things like color separation negs and masks; and in the past, as a very predictable film for architectural shots in large format. I love it in 8x10 as a portrait film. It has great micro-contrast and a very long scale, with
    excellent separation deep into the shadows. Needs to be correctly metered, however - not a film for bozos. For
    general outdoor shooting I prefer its faster cousin, TMY-2. But my idea of a really big enlargment from 35mm is
    8X10! Want a big print, get a big camera!

    I believe there was an enterprising soul who was getting special runs of Kodak film to cut into sheets, re-box and distribute. I think the magic number from Kodak was $50,000 for such an order.

    This has to be verified of course, but a $50,000 minimum to get a special run does not sound insurmountable.
