    Kodak discontinues all but 4x5 TMAX films

    After reading this thread

    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum37/8...continued.html

    I phoned Kodak and confirmed it. TMAX 100 and TMAX 400 are discontinued as stock items in 5x7 and 8x10. Only 4x5 TMAX will continue to be available.

    320TXP remains a stock item in 4x5, 5x7 and 8x10.

    As I said on APUG, I would have imagined that TMY would be the last B&W film Kodak would discontinue. It's their flagship IMO and TXP isn't even available in 35mm or 220 anymore. I guess it just goes to show that there's no accounting for the bizarre logic waves emanating from the Kodak managment.

    Well that sucks!!!! I'm shocked at the loss of TMY, but I also know I haven't bought any lately due to the cost...

    They're only getting rid of it as a stock item. As long as they still have a SKU # for it, it will still be available by special order. This has already been discussed. Why is anyone surprised?

    Sounds nuts. There goes the last reasonably straight-line film on the market for 8X10?
    And there goes my ability to make 8x10 color separations too??? Ouch!

    If this foolishness stays true, and batch orders have to be pooled, might as well up
    the sheet count in the boxes too.

    Glad I didn't break down and buy an 8x10. That bug has been biting hard.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Just placed an order for 8x10 TMY
    So did i but not as large as i would have liked. Fortunately i am pretty well stocked with TMY. Time to be a little selective shooting this film.
