    Hello all
    Just want to find out if Tungsten Film, of any brand is still available. Also, are there any tungsten movie films around? If so, please tell me about them.
    Thanks

    There are piles of Tungsten balanced movie films (ECN-2 processing)... in fact I'd say the majority of them are! Relatively fewer daylight balanced stocks.

    Well OK, Kodak's current lineup is split 50/50:

    But if you look at recently-discontinued stocks (eg what you'd find short ends of easily) there are a bunch of other tungsten choices too. And of course Fuji has a bunch.

    I have several rolls of Portra 100T I could part with (35mm) if that is useful to you... feel free to email.

    thanks

    I've heard that Fuji stopped making T64, although you can still find it new. It's one of my staples; I'll be sad when it's gone.

    At work a while ago, I had to move some equipment out of the surplus area and I found a bulk loader labeled Ektachrome T64, probably left by the imaging department (which has been 100% digital for several years). I excitedly ran into a dark closet and opened the loader but it was empty! Damn.

    Fuji t64 is still found and lomography has rebranded the Fuji film selling it in their stores. You an find it most easily there
