Ektascan B/RA

When medium format isn't big enough: 4x5, 5x7, 9x12, 8x10 and even larger.

Ektascan B/RA

I don't know how many of you have been using B/RA mammography film as a low-cost alternative to traditional panchromatic LF film, but I just received word from Z&Z, whom I've bought from in the past, that they can no longer find a supplier for it. Quote: "Digital has pushed that film off the market."

Drat.

Sad.
If we all saw the world the same no one would need a camera.

And it's not like there will be a lot of it around on the secondary market, as I would think that most of the users probably trashed the film after they junked the cameras.

There seems to be little 8x10 film of any kind on the second hand market right now, drat it.
