Keith - there's still a fair amt of 4x5 Astia left in this country, and Badger recently imported a sizable batch of
8x10 at a reasonable price, but that's all gone with no more in sight. I would have bought a bunch if Cibachrome
were still a going concern. The point is, even in Japan the amt of Astia is finite because no more is being made.
Too bad ... it was a wonderful for printing but never caught on big here because it doesn't look as snappy for
raw viewing. It also was by far the best dupe film ever made, much better than CDU or EDupe.
