You like Agfa Scala? Then just use it!!!!!!
Don't waste your time with starting such worthless threads.
Use the time and shoot your favourite films!! That's the way to keep film alive.
Agfa Scala 200X is still available! You can buy it for example from
Due to Fotoimpex Scala stock will last until 2017.
And Adox intends to make a Scala successor when Scala stock is depleted.
And you get very good results with Retro 80S, Superpan 200, Foma R100 and Agfa Copex Rapid in the original Scala prozess. The German Scala labs are offering development of these films as BW reversal.
Once you have seen the incredible detail rendition of Copex Rapid in Scala Prozess you don't miss Scala 200X anymore
As for Tri-x: If it would be discontinued (I doubt that), there are enough excellent other 400 BW films.
HP5+ can all do what Tri-X can.
Tri-X is completely overrated.
