Right. Besides, it's not so much of the production of whatever but the distribution line that stops always as a big surprise.

Once again this is not a good sign for the 35mm and MF users.
Actually I was looking for one recently because I finally have enough time to develop film at home now for the first time in 4 years. But because of that, I couldn't get the Patterson kit, and I ended up with a similar product by LPL; it's AP originated in Spain, and it's an EC product, which by the way, when I read the package, I went, the "EC"? I haven't heard the term for a long time. But again, it's an imported product, too, so when are we going to lose it?
