Should I try some new Kodak Portra 160 and/or 400? Ektar? Stick to Superia? Order 100 rolls of 160S from eBay?
Buy 300 rolls from eBay and freeze them (you can buy pizza fresh). When you find a film you like, just stock it.
If the film really is discontinued, you'll have many years of what you like.
If the film is not really going to be discontinued, you'll have many years of what you like in any case.
The case may be that if many lovers act like you, the product will be "rationalized" (less formats) but kept alive. You'll have many years of what you like in every case, once again.
No reason not to hoard what you like. Frigidaire space is not that expensive.
We are lucky people, we can stock years of preferred supplies with minimal expense, minimal hassle, and insignificant quality degradation. Wine lovers, tea lovers, cuisine passionates don't have this privilege. We have.
I would suggest trying Reala. Or move to medium format where the film selections are greater! <-- never thought I'd be saying that
That's what I thought too when I read that until I realised it's actually true. Reala is also 120 only nowadays. I've just put my Mamiya set into CLA, but when I get it back that might be the way to go.
I think I might still buy some stock from eBay and freeze it, just in case.
Wishlist: Konica Hexar AF, Fuji GW690 or GSW690 series, Hasselblad XPan, Mamiya 7 - message me if you're selling one of these!
This notification suggests 160S as a replacement for Reala, so I suppose Reala can be a replacement for 160S. Personally, I think Reala has more punch than 160S. If that notification turns out correct Reala may be no more and I wonder how long 160S can continue in only one format. I considered buying a medium format camera so I could keep on shooting Reala, in the event I just froze some 35mm film - enough to last two summers. If Reala is now dead in 120 I'm glad I didn't drop money on a new medium format kit.
