Subject: RE: BS: Remember Kodak Tri-X Pan B&W film?
I was always partial to Panatomic-X. Tho its 32 ISO speed limited its use somewhat, it was virtually grainless & made superb enlargements. Also with a reversal developing kit, it made great 2x2 black-and-white transparencies.

NOTE RE: digital photos vs. film. Photos and negatives taken 160 years ago still exist in great condition. Digital photo storage problems (CD, DVD, etc)limit their life to at most several decades. A hundred years from now there will be a HUGE gap in the photographic record; as files degrade, these photos will disappear..
