    Sad news from Kodak - HIE, EPN, EPR

    Saw this over on photo.net, and went to the Kodak page to check. Unfortunately it looks to be true.

    Link

    Really sad. I was just getting the hang of HIE and was looking forward to making a large purchase of it to make some lovely photos. I guess I will be buying more than expected, but it will be a final (and almost first) fling.

    That's unfortunate. EPN was a real standard for accurate, neutral color--always my first choice for copy work.

    Boo hoo. But at least E100G and GX are fairly decent film judging rom my limited use of them.

    I discovered 4x5 HIE after it was discontinued when someone gave me a box for free. Shame the 35mm stuff is going too, though it was a bit too grainy for me (I have 4x5 expectations ).

    Can someone please cut and paste this announcement. One of the "peculiarities" of the Kodak website is that if you log in in a "country specific" manner,you will have difficulty following a link into another "country specific" page.

    I haven't found a link to this information on the Kodak Canada website, and any Kodak link tends to re-direct me there.

    Preannounced Professional Film Discontinuances

    November 2, 2007

    KODAK is preannouncing the discontinuance of several smaller running families of Professional film - EPR, EPN and High Speed Infrared (HIE) effective end of December 2007. Demand for these products has been declining significantly in recent years, and it is no longer practical to continue to manufacture given the low volume, the age of the product formulations and the complexity of the processes involved.

    We will continue to ship product through the end of this year.

    These discontinuances are effective in all countries worldwide, with one exception: KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME 64 Film / EPR will continue to ship to Japan beyond 2007.

    KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME 64 Film / EPR / 6117 / 10 sh 8 x 10 in 1225341
    The suggested replacement for KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME 64 Film / EPR is
    KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME Film E100G or E100GX.

    Product CAT No.
    KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME 100 Film / EPN 120 8669467

    Strange, I thought HIE had been discontinued several years ago!
