    Is there any site in Japan selling only a couple of rolls at a time instead of 10?

    I think if you sent an email to Dirk an Japan Exposures, he may be able to help you. I've always found him very pleasant to deal with:

    Isn't K64 the oldest unchanged emulsion ?

    I believe so. I think though the oldest emulsion sill manufactured would have to be Plus-X or Tri-X, but those have been changed.

    If you move the question to B&W it's probably Pan F, which pre-dates Plus-X & Tri-X although all have changed.

    So why still make it at all, especially in two lesser-used sizes, i.e. 120 and bulk, just for one country?

    I can understand why the same film would need different packing and promotions for sale in different countries/markets...that wouldn't be too costly...but, given the size and cost of master rolls, it still seems odd to make a single distinct emulsion for what would apparently be very small sales.

    (I used to like EPR in the late 1990's...don't remember it as being that awful, more like a predecessor of EPP?)

    Maybe Kodak had just made a coating before the announcement and it sold best in Japan so they sold the 120 there......

    Hi, all. I spoke with Dirk at japanexposures.com, and he said that EPP is still available there. He recently put some on the website. As for EPR, he said he only seems to be able to get it in 120.
