    There's still Fuji and Rollei/Agfa slide films, plus you can process B&W negative as reversal film. As long as slide mounts and projectors are available, we can easily project.

    Still it is a sad day that Kodak will no longer make E-6. It's a good thing I've already gotten used to Fuji. Now if we could get MP print film easily (not the negative stuff, the stuff they use for prints) it wouldn't be a lot of trouble to shoot negative film and make slides from that.

    Not surprised. Slides were kicked in the gonads by digital a while back and with the death of Ciba/Ilfochrome, I hardly see a reason to pay $6 a roll plus $7 processing.

    I knew it was coming, but this sucks. I much prefer Ektachrome over Provia. Now I gotta make room in the freezer for one last order.

    They don't mention it, but I assume this means Ektachrome 100D cine film is also going to kick the bucket.

    This really only leaves Fuji as a supplier of general purpose transparency films. Fortunately, their product is top-notch. I just finished up a job, where I used 68 sheets of 4x5 Provia. Yes, there are clients that still believe in the superiority of large-format transparencies.

    At least the E6 chemicals aren't on the chopping block, yet.

    Does anyone have a recommendation for an E100G replacement? I haven't really tried Fuji, but I don't like the saturation of Velvia 50.

    Edit: Also, this article doesn't mention anything about Ektachrome E100D movie film. Shouldn't it still be manufactured in formats such as Super 8?

    What sad news!!!! There is nothing like a color slide on a lightable! Certainly not digital! Thank God for Fuji! Do Rollei/Agfa make E6 film?

    Rollei says that their Digibase CR200 film is Agfa RSX in a 200 speed emulsion on a PET base. Agfa markets it as an aerial film.

    The fuji materials are top-notch though. I have no idea if E100D will continue to be made. I would assume that if it isn't on the chopping block already, it will be soon.
