As much as I prefer many Ilford products, and want to see them do well, and intend to buy as many of them as possible...

There are *also* Kodak products that some of us love. I, for one, would be very sad if TriX were to disappear, even if HP5+ were available forever; I also love Polymax and Polycontrast, and have every intention of using the heck out of Azo.

Of course, who can predict what Kodak will do? There are those who believe that actual sales figures are irrelevant, and that Kodak will continue to produce black-and-white films only as long as the depreciation on the manufacturing equipment continues to pay off...
