    Does 400x and Velvia 100F have new boxes? No? They are discontinued, no matter how you think otherwise.

    They also list Neopan 400 on their website. It is discontinued too!

    The stores don't run out of stock the hour something stops being produced.
    This. I love 400X but it's discontinued, and getting hard to find here. I stocked up, and I may get some more for the freezer.

    It's a hard one to lose because not only is it a superb film it's the last remaining slide film faster than 100, other than that German made 200 that may also go away and that seems to produce inconsistent results for different people.

    Tri-X is still available, but I am using Ilford films exclusively except for color work, and the occasional Acros roll that I still have in supply.

    What films did you shoot most recently? (Part 2)

    Sorry Roger, I'm mostly talking 4x5 sheets these days... It's like half the price of TriX/Tmax400 there...

    When I look at film prices I look at the spectrum of sizes because I shoot them all, and decided to choose the best cheapest in all formats, and that becomes all ilford for 100 and 400 speeds.

    I soup it in Super Prodol and it comes out great. I have a whole stack of it in freezer and I want to buy more.
    I shoot it alongside trix, since they both have different looks. Once it's gone, it's TriX for me with a bit of Tmax for finer grain.
    Wish I had been able to snag the Neopan400 in 100' cans for re-rolling my own... Can't even get that!

    Can't even get Acros100 in cans anymore it seems Fuji stopped doing 100' cans... I would buy some Provia100f in a heartbeat if it came in long rolls...

    A 120 roll of Efke 25 (expired 05-2005) in the V Hasselblad developed in Pyrocat-HD.

    Only one problem, I have no 120 scanner and I just blew the scanner budget on a H1 Hasselblad (film back) with 1500 activations on for a great price. Good news, I have another roll of the same and have just loaded it in the "new" H1.

    I was chuffed to bits when I found a couple of cans of Neopan 400 in Focal Point,Exeter several years ago-they took care of my 35 mm needs up to the tweens!

    Shot seven rolls of PanF + with the Hasselblads on Saturday afternoon in Drumheller, AB. A first-time visit, I will be returning next month when I make my annual trek next door to for the Calgary Stampede.
    An assortment of F-series Nikons with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.
