Kodak Porta is very good, but also very expensive here in China. It is significantly more expensive but I have started shooting it since I am now out of 400H. I wanted to try it and like my results so far. It's just the cost, and seriously, I dont believe for a second that Kodak is going to survive.
I know b & w is fairly secure, but I dont see myself shooting film if I have to exclusively shoot it. I need to shoot color too. Yet color film seems VERY threatened now.
I may hoard Reala. My dealer has a lot of it in stock. I could buy a years worth easily or more. I have to think about this. News like this is a big shock to me.
