    Yes. I hope that Fuji reversal will survive.
    I just bought Ektachrome vs 135, I try to find more and put them in the freezer stupid of them because they have stopped producing top quality films..
    Sad news, but while there is Velvia , I'll be at peace!

    Perhaps we should just start a "Waaaaah" thread where people can go and say all the same things about Kodak over and over to their hearts' content and solicit empathy.
    Sounds like it should be it's own forum, sponsored by kodak of course.



    "fuji is committed to slide film" I like that. How come no one has it (8x10) in stock right now in the u.s.?
    What about fuji color neg sheet fim? Are they committed to that? Not in the u.s.
    There fault?
    What about all the fauxtographers that aren't shooting film? Can we blame them?

    Can't believe it...
    Kodak management are insane!!
    First, they ruined the company, and now they have stopped producing one of the best materials they have ever created. They killed ektachrome instead of developing film branch, producing new materials, making kodachrome and aerochrome alive, etc. They are f***g stupid bastards! Do not deserve single cent for their work...

    I just purchased a glorious 6x7 slide projector from a fellow apugger. Life is good. I think I'll set up a large slide show this spring. People need to be reminded of what is possible. I am very fortunate to have some very old glass slides to ogle too.

    Don't hold back, tell us how you really feel.

    Sure they've been stupid in the past but I can't agree with this. Lack of demand killed off Kodachrome, and it's doing the same to Kodak E6.

    I'd rather they kill it and keep "...the best materials they have ever created" meaning Ektar 100, Portra 160/400 and TMY-2. (And Tri-X, keep Tri-X.)

    Agreed, hence my "holding the bag" comment about Fuji.

    However, I think reversal film can be unsurpassed when it comes to color saturation. I don't know the scientific details, but a few years ago I bought a few rolls of Kodachrome after 20 years since using it last and took some shots of Coney Island and showed them to my wife on a light table, who was absolutely amazed at the color and realism. She has been exclusively digital since 2002 and displays on a 24" screen. I took that as high praise.

    You are right. But not only the lack of demand is a problem. Cost is a problem. Kodak is too big for the market. Market is smaller than in the past, BUT THERE IS AND STILL WILL BE THE MARKET. I am 100% sure that kodachrome and ektachrome would be profitable, if costs were fitted into smaller company.

    You owe yourself a tour through the recent Kodak threads for an idea of the economics of film production.
