Reading some of the pessimists here, we seem to be in a replay of Kodak's earlier descent. Growing to love TMX films, I wonder about there forward availability. Soooooooooo..... I figure I ought to give Delta 400 a try. Ditto Delta 3200. At the short end, I've loved FP4+ and not shot TMX 100, so that hook was never set... and I'm not feeling the pull to replace FP4 with either Delta 100 or TMX 100. My developer of choice these days is Perceptol... and I've got a slew of XTOL and ID-11 for more "at speed" development. But the way I read it here, folks seem to find Delta 400 a clear 2nd best relative to TMX-400... if not a third best with no second place finisher. TMX is just ALL THAT. I've shot plenty of HP5 in my day, but would say TMX seems just... miles more to my taste (not that I don't like HP5). Sooooo the question of whether Delta 400 can deliver the goods, and if so, should I just get started now... and learn this stuff? or is there even a remote possibility Kodak Alaris would ever sell off it's brands if it comes down to folding up shop? Thoughts? Just to be clear: I'm not in conniptions. Just conjecturing, but as 400-speed shooter (usually at EI 200) I don't want to have to change too drastically on one hand, but am beginning to feel a pull to support ILFORD for the long game.
