Ever feel that our little film world is in a situation like one of those wounded soldiers in the American Civil War where every day the doctor comes in the tent and says "The gangrene is spreading. I'm going to have to take off some more of your leg". Somedays I wonder how much leg is going to be left.
Every day, Clay, I wonder exactly the same, and right now there is nothing but a little stump left of the Kodak leg. Four black and white films now, Tri-X 400 roll, Tri-X 320 sheet, Tmax 100 and 400. No chromes, but Portra 160/400, Ektar, and a couple of consumer films. It's becoming a very thin herd, and Ilford is by far the most diverse from a total product standpoint. It's very sad.
