    I understand that it was John who persuaded Kodak to make the stock available as a special order.
    Ouch - I see it now. The 100D has a 20-roll minimum, the Tri-X reversal has a 5-roll minimum, and the release print (Vision 3383) has, if I'm reading it correctly, a 160-roll minimum of 2000-foot rolls! Wow, you'd have to really want to print some release prints in Regular 8mm format...
    all the stranger since there is currently no color negative film available in that format.

    Oh, and someone asked for the link:

    Making prints in Regualr 8 is often (or perhasp I should say WAS often) done with a step printer from a 16mm or larger negative. If you look there may be an Internegative available, with Regualr 8 Perfs,

    Mind you a 16mm Internegative would work fine, the printer would just not engage some of the regular 8 perfs., it would be a bit trickier buy not imposible to get the images in teh right place on the internegative.

    Once you start making prints you are generaly working from a project which has been edited. if you still need a work print for something shot in 8mm it might be easier to get it blown up to 16.

    FYI: I got the following reply from John Schwind (with respect to Super-Cine-x Reg-8 and Cine-X Reg-8 reversal 100 & 25 ft rolls);
    Cine X is sold out and no longer available. Super cine -X is available
    in both 25ft and 100ft sizes.--John .
    Well, I bought a bunch of both.

    Imagine if they'd starting doing so 10 years ago...
    "I only wanted Uncle Vern standing by his new car (a Hudson) on a clear day. I got him and the car. I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry, and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias on the porch and 78 trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander
