I made the switch to Ilford when they announced that 8x10 TMY would become a special order item. I'm so glad I did. Kodak matters to me now about as much as Justin Beiber.
I don't see what's so bad about it becoming a special order item. It's still available, it just has to be cut to order now due to lower volume.
I sure wish I could get E100G by special order, just in 135 or120.

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.
Or maybe they already do, and we just don't know it? In which case telling posters to stop commenting would actually be hurting the effort to improve film sales?
I did not tell him to stop, I just think the continual complaining does him no good, just a chance for him to take a jab at KA which is what a lot of enthusiasts on here do because they STILL don't get what a shrinking market film is. Ilford does not regularly stock 16x20 film but they do special runs of it, same with Kodak and 8x10 TMY, it is what it is and it is likely not filling the shelves of brick and mortar again.
But I get it, it's all Kodak's fault that your friends don't use enough 8x10 sheet film. When it comes to film, I can pretty much assure you that KA's goal is to keep the current films around as long as they can, not add more risk to what is a delicate balance of sustainability.
A lot of people on here are really blind to what is really going on and what a waste bitching about it is.
