    I found out from my local developer that this film is on its way out. Does anyone know why? They actually had to send it to Texas for developing so I'm guessing the problem is in the development of the film. But also thought it may be in the manufacturing of it, in that it may create toxins like chromium. :roll:

    Interesting, I hadn't heard anything about that. But now I am going to take a look around and see what I can find out about it.

    Thanks for the info.

    Kodak says no. It's just that there are fewer labs that will process it.

    Hi rabbit! While chromium is a bad mofo... i would have to go with D on this, I heard from my local shop that there was no given reason other than people just dont want to develop it anymore...then again thats what he heard..we could all be wrong.

    I think the reason you find less places processing this film is because the k-14 processing is rather toxic. Also, probably not as many people are shooting this film anymore, so what financial reason would any pro lab have for keeping a k-14 processing line up and running, if they can't process large volumes?
    Here are some k-14 labs: http://www.geocities.com/thombell/k14.html
