    Heck, who shoots at box speed?
    Haha I second that!

    I'll third that.
    I often put films in my EOS 3, rate them to 1 or 2 stops higher, shoot a few shots, then sometimes do a mid-roll-rewind to swap to another film. I always remember to write on the canister what frame I'm up to, and the speed i shot it at, but then when I put it back in the camera for more shots I remember to get the frame count back up, but completely forget to re-set the ISO to whatever I was using before and it goes back to DX-set box speed (hey, I can only remember one number at once).

    (yes, there's probably a custom-function to tell the EOS 3 to ignore the DX-code, but i'm too lazy to find my manual and set it. It's easier to tell Ilford what to do...)
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    Many of the Canon SLR camera will Blink "ISO" constantly if they can't read the the DX code. Some models will stop blinking if you set an ISO, but some won't.

    I would love to see a fresh source of Reloadable Cassettes, but with DX codes. I have a bunch of non-coded Ilford (and Agfa) cassettes from over the years which I have put away because the darn Canon does not like to not find the code. The older ones were MUCH better Physically than the DX coded ones of the same general design sold over the last few years. (and those appear to be non longer available)

    You can modify unmarked cassettes by scratching off the paint to match codes, or buy some self-adhesive aluminum tape (used for sealing ductwork) at a hardware store. Porter's Camera Store sold self-adhesive DX-coded labels, but now they're closing, I don't know of another source.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    there is a camera store in the UK who makes some, they will not send them out of the country, but Someone I know from a mailing list was kind enough to get some on my behalf. Unfortunately they are poorly designed as far as having a positive way to locate them and they are so thin that I doubt that they will last many cycles. Also they were quite expensive even if just the UK price was taken into account.

    Wow. I'd never, ever give up Acros film. Not in a million years. The day Fujifilm stops selling Acros is the day I lose interest in photography.

    3 rolls Acros film shot today during my weekly urban hike!

    You have got to be kidding??

    I mean, I like Acros, and it has a different spectral sensitivity and thus a different look from other films, and the best (lack of) reciprocity failure I know of, but it's not magic.

    I can't think of any one film that would make me give up photography if it went away.

    I agree, unless of course you specifically ONLY shoot super long 6 hour exposures at night, then you technically couldn't do it with any other film for the reciprocity failure reasons, but it's silly to say you would give up photography altogether, plus have you tried other films, PanF+ or FP4+ ? They are spectacular!
