Dear Larry et al,

I take your point, but you are incorrect, it is more vital than ever before that we continue to R&D our products, both in development and manufacturing R&D. For some time now we have been working very hard to source alternative routes and suppliers of raw materials, to qualify and test these for the photo coating process, after all its a very dynamic market place, and our customers demand and expect the best, and we are committed to supplying the widest range of monochrome film, paper and chemistry...ad infinitum

A wider choice of analog products gives true creative flexibility for the photographer / artist / printer ( no matter who manufactures them ):

Thanks for using, buying and valuing our products :
