I searched the Kodak web site and found in their black and white line, one of my favorite emulsions of all time no longer on their current listing. I'm talking the TX402 (100 foot) or regular 24 or 36 exp factory non professional emulsion that was ISO rated at 400.
Does anyone out there know the scoop?

For some unfathomable reason, it is hard to find the Tri-X info on the Kodak Web site. If you search, you can find the technical data page, but it is not listed on the main product list. Tri-X is a quite popular film (for B&W), and I believe that Kodak is committed to continuing it's production.
Of course, if anyone had firm information to the contrary, I'd be interested in hearing about it.

Bravo on liking the 'old school' film of Tri-X. It appears to be in continued manufacture, and is a great film for timed exposures at night.

From what I've noticed and heard from some of the local professionals, it looks like Kodak has been trying to push the new TMax line of film and developers. I haven't heard anything about the discuntiuing of the Tri-X line and still find a ready supply of it around here.

I don't know what's up with Kodak. However, I do know the info on Tri-X is still there, you just can't access it directly. I once bookmarked the URL and as far as I know, that's the only way to access it. The URL of the Tri-X data sheet is: http://www.kodak.com/ppiHome/technicalPubs/ePubs/f9/f9.shtml
