    I noticed the catalog number for 8x10, but not sure what it means at this time. BTW, the tech pub mentions 4x5 sheets on pages 3 and 4, in the sections for "Replenishment and Wash Rates" and "Print Grain Index". No corresponding mention of 8x10. I guess we'll see how it goes.

    Kodak has not discontinued all 8x10 sheet film. They did recently stop selling 8x10 Tmax 400 as a regular stocked item, but offer it as a special order item.

    Yes, sir! I intend to get some of the 8x10 size for a new project coming up. I thought about using the 400 speed, but that would require smaller apertures than I wanted, so now that this was announced I can just wait a few weeks and get this 160 speed instead.

    Or is that an old Portra 800?

    That's the 'old' Portra 800.

    If they release a new version, it will have a new tech sheet published. As it is, the tech sheet #E-4040, which has all the older versions of Portra including 800, is listed in the discontinued section. As I said, if they are going to make a new version of the 800, it will be announced when the current stock of it gets to within two months of running out. If it sells too slowly, however, it may just get the axe and they leave us with 160 and 400.

    But don't take my statements to mean they will get rid of Portra 800, it just seems this is the model they are following for releasing the other two.

    I'm guessing this 160 version will be just as pushable as the 400 version. This could be used to create higher contrast portraits, retaining the nice skin tones. Is this correct?

    By what I've read, the new portra films retain a lot more shadow detail when pushed.
