Which discontinued film do you miss the most?

I miss AGFA Ultra 50. I took it with me once on a trip to Florida and the end results were amazing. Florida is already bright and colorful so the ultra 50 captured it amazingly.

I liked Agfa ultra but I'm also a fan of Agfa optima. It had a really great look to it. Very euro!

Re: Which discontinued film do you miss the most?

Agfa CT Precisa was my favorite. It was the most beautiful film for cross-processing.

Never had a chance to try Kodak Aerochrome. :-(

Re: Which discontinued film do you miss the most?

Kodachrome. What a loss!

Re: Which discontinued film do you miss the most?

In general, many of the slower films but I've really missed Kodachrome, Plus-X and Panatomic X. Now that I've gotten back into 4x5, I regret missing out on all the sheet films I never tried when they were still around.

Re: Which discontinued film do you miss the most?

Ektachrome epr 64

Re: Which discontinued film do you miss the most?

Ektachrome 100 EPN which was corrected for off color blues and violet. Invaluable for flowers and fabrics.

Re: Which discontinued film do you miss the most?

I regret not shooting more Kodachrome 64.

ADOX CHS 25 ART, that was the best film ever! It wasn't discontinued for the obvious reason, the machine broke down and that ended all Efke film produced there, including the Efke IR 820: http://believeinfilm.com/article/fotokemika-project

Polaroid Type55 Pos/Neg 4X5 Film.

Re: Which discontinued film do you miss the most?

Kodachrome, I miss that wonderful color film.

Re: Which discontinued film do you miss the most?

Kodachrome. I have four rolls in cold storage but no way to develop them except as B&W by stripping the remjet layer and using regular B&W chemistry, which isn't the same. In discussing this with the manager of Central Camera in Chicago, I got his opinion that no one is ever going to successfully reverse-engineer the K14 process because there's not enough demand for it. Perhaps this is why one can still buy back stocks of Kodachrome so cheaply.

I'd have said Technical Pan, but it's easy enough to get back stocks of that and I was pleased to find that someone has reverse engineered a substitute for Technidol that seems to avoid the washed-out effect one gets trying to develop it using ATP chemistry, so I'm going to try developing the last roll I have now at home once I find the appropriate special occasion to shoot with it. :-)
