    Kodak EPT Gone?

    So, Kodak EPT seems to be off the catalogs at all of the usual retailers in 120 format.

    Is it gone in the 120 format?

    Why bother with the facts when speculation is more newsworthy? Besides, who here believes Kodak anyway?

    Why not just use regular film and an 80C filter.

    and who is it that makes a 160 speed T balanced chrome? I love what I can do with EPT, but I think its time I lop off my nose to spite my face.

    I don't understand, surly for a Tungsten film to be usefully it would need to be at least 400, 800 ideally.

    Why would a T balanced film need to be 400 or 800iso?
    I have never seen an 800iso T film. Kodak made at one time (and may still) an iso 320 T balanced chrome. Most T balanced films are iso 64-160, which generally makes them 1/2 to 1.5 stops faster then a comparable daylight balanced film when using a tungsten to daylight filter.

    Because indoor lighting is dull, I need to use 800 maybe even 1600 speed film shooting indoors at night.

    Low speed tungsten is desired.

    Not at all true. I have used extensively in the past low speed tungsten balanced color transparency and color negative films to produce product photography using a large variety of complex studio tungsten lights, similar to movie studio lights. This is the way it all used to be done. These 2000 watt Fresnel fixtures on roll around stands have very precise shape and control of the cone of light, and have barn doors and snoots and all sorts of light modifiers to creat a beautiful image with light. For this type of work, a low speed fine grain material is needed. This used to be the bread and butter photography of a Commercial Studio.

    You are thinking of applications totally different, such as available light photography in 35mm. I am talking studio photography in 4x5 or 8x10,
    or 11x14 transparencies.
