    Dealers carrying new Portra 400

    Hi Guys-

    I was wondering if any of you have found a place that is selling the new Portra 400 yet. According to a Kodak representative, it is currently being shipped out. Scott DiSabato had said in an interview that the film will be shipped when the stock of a particular format of the old film are sold out...

    I'll do my bit, in helping to deplete the stock of the 'old' version.

    went to my local pro-shop here in LA this afternoon, and asked about the new film. They said they're not expecting to see it before the spring most likely, mostly b/c Kodak still has massive stores of 400NC/VC to sell off before letting the new product out on the market.

    however, Kodak said it will start SHIPPING in November, according to Photokina.

    I just want this damn new stuff in 8x10.... but supposedly 4x5 will be the largest they'll cut it .

    Apparently they will be selling it in ultra large/odd format sizes through canham camera once there is sufficient pent up demand

    Although I don't shoot 8x10 I think you guys should be able to get 8x10. The previous film was available in 8x10 so make this available in 8x10 too. It sounds like 8x10 is rather slow at Kodak so they want to make it a special order only...

    I like to stay with one film across formats, so I use Ektar 100 since I can get 8x10 to 35mm. I would love to switch to Portra 400 for the added speed, but can't due to lack of 8x10.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    "Can't"?
    What should be stronger, your desire to have the use of a great film that is a bit faster, even though you would then need another film for 10x8? Or the desire to have only one film across all formats?

    I can't switch and keep all formats with one film selection. Of course I can mix and match, but I like consistency when I work.

    Then you also can't use a great film that is a bit faster (which you say you would love).
    Two "can't"s. The devil and the deep blue sea. Or cake and eating. Or something.
