    I have sad news: Carestream Ektascan B/RA has been discontinued. Does anyone know of any other single-emulsion films available? Or does anyone have any leftover stock they're not using? I'd come to rely on its orthochromacy for a particular project I'm doing.

    Is ADM MAMO the same as UM-MA? I'm considering buying some UM-MA.

    Was this from the manufacturer? A supplier? Or somewhere else?

    Curious where everyone's getting their x-ray film? Also, besides the difference between the blue and green and single- and double-emulsion versions, there seems to be an astounding variety of special application films (mammography, etc.). Apologies if this has been covered already, but with 500+ posts in this thread I haven't been able to find a basic explanation of what to look for in these. Can anyone briefly outline the most fundamental differences?

    ZZ told me the same and refunded me $320 from a case order this week

    Perhaps I got the last 2 boxes last month, when I placed the case order and paid for 5 boxes

    They said at that time they had some coming...guess not...or a machiavellian plot is afoot...

    BUT 6 years ago I was told by ZZ 14X17" Ektascan was 86, but I and they persevered and found me a case after a long while

    Sometimes there is some somewhere, but right now nobody is searching too hard, as few are working or if they are, they are maximizing their profits, just as I would...

    I suggest you buy 2X-side now, before it goes, it also works fine

    I buy only from ZZ and usually only Carestream which is made by Kodak and is T grain

    Double sided seems to be all there is now

    8X10 and 11X14 will fit normal photo holders, the rest is a crapshoot

    But I often cut it down to smaller sizes and I see right now none is FS on ZZ from this list https://www.zzmedical.com/analog-x-r...-ray-film.html

    IF and I am not buying anymore this looks like a great deal https://www.zzmedical.com/analog-x-r...-ray-film.html

    I have been warning for 2 years that X-Ray film is dead... soon


    AND MOST OF US HAVE READ THE WHOLE THREAD

    I agree,and I also bought only from ZZ It's too bad the Carestream single sided is no more,but I have my lifetime supply. My wife has frequently said I am going to die with film in the freezer. I hope so, and at 91 it's very possible. So goes life.
    Those who missed out on the final run will have to learn to be extremely careful so they can use the double sided stuff. I am in the same boat with 5x12, but it doesn't worry me. When I began this voyage through a life in photography, all the film was very delicate and had to be handled with great care. It only takes practice,a lot of practice, so hang in and don't give up.
