    I just read through the CIS 2006 thread you posted, and I have to agree with r-s. At least from your description of the way things were handled with it. The market 'research' was really poor/next to non-existent.

    Can you post a link to that CIS 2006 thread? My searches are coming up dry.

    Thanks,

    ^--- this last one has example image from the film at ISO 12000 and 24000
    Wow! A true 24000 film. But from reading some of those posts, it seems unlikely that Kodak will put this film into production. Most unfortunate.

    Probably not. My immediate thoughts are this requires all new infrastructure (processing) to support just for this specific film. Which is a really big obstacle to overcome I would think.

    Plus it sounded like the cost (incl wages) of making the film didn't leave enough room for a return, or exceeded a projected selling price.

    And it appeared to me no market research was carried out, just assumptions. To the extent they grossly misjudged who the target customers were going to be.




    Doubt it'll be heard from again. Unless someone wants to reconstruct it from the patents. But PE said he couldn't get two of the chemicals required. So that's another hurdle.

    hi oxleyroad
    nope
    i found a thread that mentions it ( not the thread i was referring to though )
    it was something mentioned in photo techniques magazine
    and it has to do with fuming exposed film in hydrogen peroxide heated to about 100ºF ...
