    EPR is ektachrome 64, and its a "chrome" film, NOT negative(unless you cross-process :wink:, which I've found it doesn't do all that well)

    just wish the price was a little lower, I'd go bananas. EPR and EPN are my all-time fav's for chrome film, then E100G and Astia

    EPN, for some reason, is almost impossible to find these days. I have 30 rolls of EPR in 120, and 25 of EPP, plus some 35mm...I'm really going to miss these :sad: EPP seems to be such a low seller than even though it was discontinued months, it's still relatively available.

    As far as I know, the only Kodak E-6 films available to the US market are E100G, E100VS, E200, Elite Chrome 100, Elite Chrome 100 Plus, and Elite Chrome 200. The EPR is supposedly sold to the Japanese market only and I think EPN is gone.....

    It could be because it has not been manufactured for over two years!

    Aside from 320T and 160T, it was my favorite Ektachrome...EVER!

    I replaced it with EPP, which is now gone as well. I guess now it is E100G for me!

    My only remaining EPN is about 25 sheets of 8x10. :sad:

    I posted a thread to Product Availability recently that EPR is gone in Japan.

    True. But I meant it's difficult relative to the others (EPY, EPP, EPR).

    The news about EPR came from one store, Japan exposures...who knows if it is totally accurate. I am going to pick some up anyways. Has anyone ever used this Supra 800? Is is Portra relabeled for another country?

    It is no longer produced, but still may be AVAILABLE somewhere.

    Kodak discontinued the Supra line several years ago. It was replaced, more or less of course, by the Ultra Color line. I really liked it and used it all the time - the 800 was pretty great from what I remember.
