    I went in expecting more. I thought there would be reciprocity info, developing times, etc. Pretty much useless at this point. It did point out that Portra was good for portraits though.

    Kodak only has a handful of professional film. It's much better to download the tech pub at Kodak and read it as pdf on the cell phone or a lots of other devices.

    It hasn't been discontinued... Yet. But given the news that Kodak is selling their consumer films, it probably won't be around much longer. Unless the news has changed...

    Unfortunately, even before the bankruptcy, many of the marketing initiatives of Eastman Kodak were either incompletely relevant or not relevant at all in the marketplaces served by Eastman Kodak's international subsidiaries (such as Kodak Canada).

    I don't get your reasoning. If Kodak is selling something, for that very reason that something is going to continue to be around. How can you sell something which is discontinued?

    I think he means that consumers aren't buying film... Only pros are, and they aren't buying consumer film, they are buying pro film, and since this means all the consumer film is just sitting on shelves collecting dust, Kodak will soon be out of business, I think that's what he means...

    What I mean is that Kodak announced that it will be selling its consumer film division, and no one knows what's going to happen after the sale, if a sale even happens.

    My point is, why use an app for a film with such an uncertain future? Why devote your time to learning the nuances of Tri-X over an extended time if at the end of that time it may be discontinued?

    I don't know why that's so hard to understand.

    What's so hard to understand is this illogic pessimistic logic which shows you possibly had a certain Schopenauer among your ancestors. (or Cassandra, OK she was right in the end, that's not the point ).

    Kodak never made an announcement that Tri-X is going to be discontinued.
    Kodak is possibly going to sell its film division, but this doesn't mean the buyer is going to discontinue Tri-X or any other film.
    Kodak sale or not, any film can be discontinued any time. But until it hasn't been discontinued, it is in production.

    We devote our time to film because we like film. We all have to die one day: I, you, and film.
    Why mourn our death before our final day?

    KODAK Professional Film App

    Because I'm not going to waste my time learning how to use a certain set of films with such an uncertain future. They haven't said Tri-X will be discontinued, but they haven't said it WOULDN'T be either. All they can say is "We don't know."

    When I inquired with Kodaks customer liaisons, they said they didn't know anything, other than Kodak was in fact selling.

    I've chosen to move to strictly Ilford films and chemicals. One film, one developer, one method..... Isn't that what everyone preaches? And ilford, unlike Kodak, can give me a certain future with the same formulations and products. Kodak can't.
