Kodak Plus-X gone?

Postby Ornello » Tue Oct 19, 2010 4:45 pm

I was just looking at the Kodak web site and noticed that Plus-X was missing. Anyone know?

If you start on the left drop-down and go to film, and click on professional film, it takes you to:

Apparently the UK website doesn't agree with the US one:

Kodak UK have it for £6.49 for a 135-36 roll from noam's link. Ag-Photographic have it for £4.75 a roll.
Having tried it a few years ago, I find I still prefer FP4 Plus which is also cheaper at £3.29 a roll.

noam, the thread you recommend was deleted from apug because it was underground marketing. Some guys badmouthed Kodak and tried to promote other products instead.

Sorry about that. Well, it seems to have become common knoledge on many photo sites, even without an official statement from Kodak.

No big loss...I have not used any since the 1970s, and as Kodak points out, T-Max 100 is a better film in most ways.

I preferred FP4 to Plus-X anyway, though Fuji Acros is even better.
