    I always hate to see films discontinued, but at least you can still get TX-400 in 120. The sad bit is that TXP 220 was the last 220 black and white film you could get, I believe. At least from Kodak, Ilford or Fuji...you can probably get it from Maco or Efke or someone in the smaller market, but from the big 3, this is the death of 220 B&W.

    Sad news...as Stuart said ,no more 220. I used it quite regulary in my pentax67 to avoid reloading all the time.

    Just makes you wonder what is next....

    Can you still buy them seperately, is it just the 5 packs that have been discontinued?

    No, all TXP-320 roll film is being discontinued. The 4x5 sheet film is supposedly continuing, so you can cut an roll your own

    Adox's web site does not list any 220 films. CHS 100 is even available in 127 and 620, but no 220.

    Looks like my 220 backs will be useless pretty soon.
