    That is weird, I wonder how much is "tiny"? A few thousand rolls? I talked to my supplier today to confirm a final order and they said that orders have jumped 400% in the last two weeks. I can't imagine that if they keep getting steady requests for it that they won't put another order in to Kodak.

    I would love to get some more but aside from spending over $7,000 on a hassy system, 120 rolls of 35 HIE and 50 rolls of it in 120, I am blowing my quarterly budget already for this kind of thing.

    Besides, I don't know how long this stuff actually lasts even in deep freeze so I think I have all I can use really. If I can shoot it all on special projects and ad campaigns over two years or so, it will be money and time well spent.

    HIE and EIR are/were the shortest lived of all Kodak products IIRC. Even freezing will not stop their gradual demise, it just slows them down a bit.

    Yeah,

    That is what I hear consistently. I'll definitely have it all shot in two years or less then, that should be safe.
