    Frugal Photographer says they are sold out of 126. So does Photo Supplies UK.

    That's sad.

    There's still some old stuff selling on eBay.

    And, I think the cassettes can be reloaded with 35mm film, no?

    Yes! Open them carefully and buy a 100' roll of unperforated Portra 160NC from UltrafineOnline and respool onto the backing paper. Works great though you have to bend or snip off the perforation detecting finger and just use the backing numbers for spacing.
