    There is no "movie rating" AFAIK

    They tend to use incident light readings, but other than that, it's just like still. Now, having said that, just like still they work their media taking into account the developing and printing process. Prints means movie stock.

    If it is a movie stock, it lacks a rem-jet backing. Or is it only color motion picture film that has that?

    Bulk isn't just cheaper, 100' cans are easier to store in the fridge/freezer. I've got way more bulk film in the freezer than I could have room for if it were boxed rolls. But those boxed rolls are pretty cheap.

    I think the advantage of bulk cost wise is you can load the number of frames you need rather than just shooting up the whole roll. I have some recently acquired RF cameras that I would prefer to load up, say, 12x just to test the basics out.

    If you combine the 20x + 36x prices, the bulk is way cheaper. Then again, if only shooting 36x, then saving 17% maybe is not enough.

    Its nice to have both as a choice.

    Kodak used to sell 100' at 29.99 at B&H and Adorama. That film was Trix made in USA for international market. The USA made for USA was selling at $44.99. a few years ago they stopped selling them and that was the time I started to try foma and forte. I don't know if the Aristra premium 400 film is indeed a left over stock? or kodak decided to re-label that intentional version.
    freestyle has marked the 36exp roll quite low -- at 1.99. the 100' can make about 18 36-exp rolls -- that brings each roll = 1.67.

    Right, and if this was movie stock we could tell by the sprocket holes, rounded ends vs. square. Sounds to me like Kodak has some excess inventory and they want to move it before it just becomes waste. (wouldn't it be great to get some of that to play with?) So this deal may not last too long. Nice to have a lower price option though.

    There is no way that a smart company like Freestyle would ramp up a whole new film line for a limited overstock. Would you?

    B&H and other NY vendors have long re-imported Kodak films as gray market. I don't know enough about the market system, but my take is that film is cheaper in some markets and despite flying it two ways, it still is cheaper to import back.

    I think it's not unlike pharmaceuticals; the manufacturers will charge what the market will bear. My father takes aracept for his Alzheimer's. No generic is available here. We pay about $60 for 90 days, but the $600 cost counts against his Medicare Part D. Screw that, we just ordered 90 days generic from Canada for $82, no Part D hit.

    Sorry for the rant.
