KODAK PROFESSIONAL BW400CN Film -- discontinuation notice on August 14, 2014
I am novice on films. I find this journalistic C41 b&w film to be unique with fine grain, great contrast and creamy look. I preferred it over the Ilford XP2. I find BW400CN easiest to scan as color negatives and have the dust removal feature available in scanning. Even my lowly flatbed cannon scanner at home likes this film.

Two more rolls to go
I quite often see this film on display in places like Walmart and CVS, I thought wrongly that this film will last longer than others. The discontinuation notice of BW400CN in Kodak's site leads me to this wonderful 100% film photographer

and the discovery of this wonderful development place that she has used for her professional work

All is not lost in this piece of sad news, I hope the few films that I love live on -- Fuji Acros 100, Kodak Tri-X 400 and Kodak Ektar.
