Kodak Announces the Death of BW400 CN Film

Kodak BW400CN

For those that knew the true beauty of the film today is a very sad day for many photographers.

In a statement recently issued by Kodak, the company has now discontinued their BW400CN film. Though the film isn’t as prolific as Tri-X, it still created beautiful portraits and images overall. In fact, Kodak billed it as the finest grain black and white chromogenic film made. And in some ways, they’re correct–though the grain isn’t as fine as with some of their other emulsions.

Kodak is also stating that it should still be available in the market for around the next six months; though it can often be seen sold at places like WalGreens and more. So in fact, it may not last that long.

When I first started the site, I reviewed the Leica M7 using this film. It was an awesome experiences.

B&H Photo, Adorama and Amazon still have stock of the film if you’d like to store some in the freezer for another day.
