    I'm interested in finding out if any form of 70mm color neg film is still available from kodak ( or anyone else). In the past you can bypass dealers which are rarely kept up to date, and call kodak to ask. I can't find any phone for this on their website. Anyone know who to call to get a accurate answer directly from them?
    I've been getting 400 nc and 160 nc without sprocket holes, but sprocket holes don't matter either way. Thanks, Jamie Young

    I believe at this point it must be special order but I recently saw the 160 as 70mm option. Talk to a Kodak dealer of you could call Kodak directly at 1-800-242-2424 option 19. Their number is hard to find..

    Thanks everyone. I'm not adverse to motion picture film or aerial film if I can get images not unlike regular film with it. I've heard Motion picture film is different but don't know much beyond that. I will try calling to see. I've found that the best option in the past, but haven't done it in a while. One would think listed available products, product status, and possible product substitutes would increase sales but kodak has never been very good at that. I'm using it in a 70 mm roundshot panoramic camera, and hope to continue for a little while at least. We'll see.
    Thanks, Jamie

    Motion Picture in 70mm

    70mm Motion picture film is made with 65mm style perforations. This is for historical reasons. To get better sound, most of the 70mm formats used magnetioc sound stripes which were placed outside the perfs. The Camera negative was (and IS ) 65mm.
