When looking in to putting in a film order, I was really bummed out to find that my favorite film appears to be discontinued. Fuji Acros won over the crown as my favorite film after the demise of ORWO NP20 a couple of decades ago. Acros had a wonderful tonal scale, fine grain, and one other feature that there still is no competition for. It had almost no reciprocity failure. There was no recommended exposure adjustment until a full two minutes!!!
Well, what is out there now? Here's a list of what appears to still be being made:
Ilford: Pan F plus, FP4 plus, HP5 plus, SFX, XP2 plus, Delta 100, Delta 400, Delta 3200
Kodak: Tri-X, Tmax 100, Tmax 400,
Bergger: Panchro 400
Foma (and Arista.edu): Fomapan 100, 200, 400
Ultrafine (Kentmere?): (E)Xtreme 100, 400
There are also a bunch of film stocks I believe are just repackaged:
Rollei, Agfa, LOMO, Holga
Black and white films I've used in my lifetime that are gone:
Agfa: APX 25, 100, 400
Kodak: Plus X, Verichrome Pan, Panatomic X
Ilford: HP5, FP4 (does that count, they just predate the "plus")?
Forte: Fortepan 100, 200, 400
ORWO: ORWO NP 15, NP 20 (GDR Domestic only), NP 22, NP 27
Fuji: Fuji Neopan SS, Neopan 100 and now Acros :-(
Konica: Konica Infrared
Svema: Svema 64
Did I miss anything?!
