    I'd rather Kodak continued to introduce new films, as they do (unlike Fuji, which only discontinues).

    I was wondering what happened, but didn't want to bring it up in case there were a few sore spots that I and everyone else didn't need to know about...

    I appreciated their support for a few months, the only sore spot was I felt their decision not to continue seemed unilateral and made by one employee. It even felt like that decision was driven by the hassle involved with that person cutting us a check via corporate, that it was a monumental hassle they no longer wanted to deal with any more. I could be wrong but that was my interpretation of things.

    That's too bad, given the play that their products enjoy on this site. But if they're not interested, life moves on.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    Yeah I noticed the gap in the ponsors page Sean and it made me wonder where all the logic was. I do wonder if these film companies are now consolidating regionally and unofficially "splitting" the world market between them. Ever tried to get Kodak colour films in Asia...?

    They could all get on board with the one site rather, and expand, which will definately happen if it gains momentum. Currently the site has a bit over 10% of the number of registered users of APUG and I shoot Film on flickr.

    You mean like when Velvia was discontinued due to a raw material issue, and now we have 3 flavours of Velvia?

    Yep, I get my Ektacolor Pro 160 from Asia. Actually I can get a lot of my Kodak stuff from Asia if I want.
