I'm sure that if you take the time to adapt to FP4 you might find it works well for you. As for Kodak nixing unique products, at this point in time, all film is unique somewhat, TMY in 4x5 being very much so....
Um, he has? Last I saw from Simon he was surprised at the interest in IR and said they could "easily" make it if the market was there, but doubted that it was. He then said he'd look into it. I haven't heard anything else since. There was a thread here were several of us were saying we'd buy such a film. though granted the users here who said that won't be nearly enough.
