Seems to me Kodak discontinued Plus-X in 4x5 format this past year -- it's probably getting pretty scarce by now. For a 100 speed 4x5, I'd suggest giving J and C Pro 100 a try -- everyone I've heard of who has used it has liked it, and the price is seriously unbeatable.

Yes, Kodak did discontinue Plus-X in sheets. However, you can try J&C like Donald says, or there's Efke and possibly Ilford FP-4 (great film if it's still made in this size).

There might be a few others I can't think of at the moment; perhaps others will know.

Kodak has indeed discontinued Plus-X in sheet formats. However be advised that the emulsion as well as the substrate used in the sheet film was quite different than that used on roll films. :confused:

Once again, we see the "wisdom" of Kodak, discontinuing one of their most popular films. I have to wonder, are they deliberately trying to commit corporate suicide? Meanwhile, Freestyle or B&H may have some in stock. Sigh. At least we still have Ilford FP4.

Gustavo,
I used to love PXP and shot it exclusively with my 5x7. Since it disappeared, I've been shooting tri-x 320 rated at 160, developed in pyrocat. I have to say I like this better than PXP. Unless you're tied to an existing project, you might want to give it a try...
Take care,
Tom
