    Well, I can't say I've never found a flaw, but I can only remember one -- a batch of K-25 that had a decidely magenta cast to it.

    Well, there was that bad batch of plates, too, that led to the discovery of the importance of sulphur to emulsion speed, but I didn't experience that one personally.

    Not a bad record.

    Well, this thread is a couple of months old but I just HAVE to speak up for the Kodak products I love(d):

    * Panatomic-X- I fell in love with photography once I used this film;

    * T-MAX 100 and 400- haven't tried version 2.0 yet since I'm still in low gear from a long absence from analog photography, but these two films are truly fantastic IMO;

    * HC-110- for its crisp grain structure;

    * Verichrome Pan- for its unique look and very wide exposure latitude.

    There may be others buried in the memory cavern but these come to mind... Yessir, I have much to thank Kodak for.

    I'm thankful for P3200TMZ and the recent price drop! It seems to be the only film which I perfectly expose every time (this is at night without a meter).

    It's hard to imagine photography without Kodak.

    Kodachrome, Panatomic-X, Plus-X, T-Max 100, T-Max 400, T-Max P3200, Ektachrome 64.

    Kodak darkroom chemistry D-76, HC-110, T-Max Developer, Photo-Flo, etc.

    All of those Kodak papers that I learned to print with.

    I have one of those red Kodak process timers that you have to wind-up (it has to be over 60 years old) and I still use it to develop film.

    The Kodak Ektar 101mm and 105mm lenses in Kodak Flash Supermatic shutters for my 2x3 Pacemaker Crown Graphics and the 127mm Ektar for my 3x4 Speed Graphic.

    I could go on.

    An older thread, yes, but still important. When I started out in the mid 60's as a teenager there was hardly anything but Kodak. Sure, you could get Agfa and a few others but the camera store shelves were virtually YELLOW with quality Kodak products at very good prices.
    Verichrome pan was the film I started with in a 126 Instamatic camera. Tri-x was my favorite when I got my Exakta a year later. I still use Plus-X, Tri-X and D-76 as the main ingredients for my photographic pursuits.
    I do miss Plus-X in 4x5 and the demise of Kodak printing paper still hurts but at least most of us had the chance to experience those fine products and others.

    Nearly everything I used photographically from day one in the early 60's, until the late 80's, came in a yellow box, or had a yellow label. I never really diversified until the 90's, and still look for yellow first before reaching for any other.

    I must admit I was never a great Kodachrome fan, but I love Kodak Portra in all it's incarnations to bits.

    My Kodak Moments

    I know it's been said before in this thread but these are my "firsts":
    First camera: Kodak Brownie
    First film shot and processed--Verichrome Pan
    First Developer: D-76
    First Paper: Kodabromide (remember that?)
    First "real" film used: Tri-X
    Only ultra fine grain ever used: Panatomic X
    First (and only) paper developer: Dektol
    ... and the list goes on. Kodak was the company that got most of us started down this photography path, through it's products and publications. Does anyone still remember that massive Kodak display and trade show almost permanently embedded in the second floor Grand Central Station in NYC?
    Thanks again Kodak!
