Whoa! After some of what I heard and saw I thought it was the end for Chinese photographic films. Then one day I was looking around on eBay and I found 10 rolls of 36exp 35mm Luck Film for $45 with shipping. I grabbed a package quick and just recieved it. It’s dated 2018-07! Fresh stuff!
Alas there seems to be no more of it cheap. A precursor for more to come or some sputtering from a dying emulsion? It’s difficult to know. Shanghai seems to be putting out some decently priced 4×5 but I don’t see anyone selling 35mm or 120. ¯\(°_o)/¯ Keep you eyes peeled. It may not be the end of Chinese films yet, but I suspect it may not be too far off. Also it may just be the nature of industry in a communist country. Need workers elsewhere? Turn off lower tech factories and let it idle until the planners deem more to be necessary? I really don’t know.
If you can find it, buy it and shoot it! There’s an adventure in every roll!
