    Looking for names of suppliers/manufacturers who still make 70mm film. I know Kodak has the Portra series, and I think Efke makes some.
    I have a Pentax 645 with a mint 70mm back for it, and wonder if I should pursue the film or simply consider the back a museum piece.

    Thanks,

    I think you've already named them!

    Is Portra available in 70 mm rolls?

    QG: B&H lists unperforated Portra 160NC available on special order. Two kinds of reels.

    Developing it OTOH could be interesting.

    Thanks.
    Developing it (or rather: having it developed) would be the minor problem.
    I need Type II.

    Who is using unperforated 70 mm film that they discontinue the perforated version, yet keep the unperforated?
