I see all this panic about films not being made, when actually they are still being made. Ilford may have downsized to attract a new buyer, but what does that tell you? A NEW BUYER! a buyer who buys a film and paper production company, is going to produce film and paper don't you think? It is like speculating a company like Kodak who has billions in revenues from it's film is going to drop it all and back away from billions. Clue Kodak last year had an increase in it's color film purchases. That when they thought there was no coming back for color. By floundering around and saying you want an alternative is just doing what you are afraid of. You are cutting the sales, and thus accelerating the demise if it were to happen. Buying what you know from the companies like Ilford, will also show that sales are strong, and attract that new buyer.
