    Thanks for that link.

    Currently it's still cheaper to cut down film then to have to buy the amount of quarter plate; Quarter plate comes in 50 sheet packs, 100ASA, minimum order 30 packs @$35USD per pack So you have to buy a box at $1050 unless you arrange to split it.

    I also have a couple of 616 cameras that I could shoot but I believe there still is 70mm available from Kodak.

    $150 a 100' of 70mm is 3x what J&C was charging. No?
