    Bill, that could just as well lead to a mass product abandonment.

    I agree, a strategy that makes customers hoard and wonder when/if the next release will drop, would be doomed to fail, but that is just my $0.02

    And that end result would be different from where we are right now exactly how?

    News of the end of Ektachrome won't be encouraging to lab owners still nursing E6 lines with declining volume. Afraid many will figure it's done and just close it down. Hoping to binge shoot this spring/summer/fall while quality local processing is still afloat.

    Nah. Washing machines are too tough. Maybe they should try - um let's see - hey, how about printers!

    After the end for Kodak colour reversal still films, the end for colour reversal motion picture film has now also been announced: http://motion.kodak.com/motion/About...0514/index.htm . Another sad day.

    On the bright side, Vision 50D colour negative will also be made available in Super8 format. (Not really convenient for a hobbyist like me who just wants to project home movies; colour negative is just "a bit" too cumbersome in that respect.)

    So that's the end of conveniently projectable color home movie film? Or does Fuji make it? I know there are black and white films available from Kodak and Foma and maybe others.

    Black and white reversal is indeed still available from several suppliers.
    But as far as Super8 goes, I think we lost the colour reversal option as soon as Kodak runs out of stock.

    For Single8, there's still an option, and that is some good news. Fuji Velvia, T64 and my favourite, Astia 100F, have been unavailable in Single8 for some time now (at least from my usual supplier, and as far as I could search the internet, everywhere). As of now, my supplier has them in stock again, see http://www.wittner-kinotechnik.de/ka...m/single-8.php .

    So, not all is lost, if you happen to have a Single8 camera.

    I thought Astia was gone in all formats?

    Fuji did recently indicate they might consider bringing it back.

    I did a slide show at a party over the weekend, which included some Astia slides. I commented on loving the film but it's been discontinued. Several people commented that they could see why I liked it. (Of course then I moved on to E100G and really liked it too....)

    Indeed, it was gone, and... I don't know, but I guess it still is. The Single-8 film is not sold in Fuji boxes or even in Fuji cartridges, so it could very well be old stock, spooled into the cartridges by another company.

    I've also read about a possible come-back. "it is not completely excluded that Astia 100F might come back one time" (see this thread). That sounds rather iffy, so it's safe to assume that the Single-8 is old stock Astia.

    Hm... which slide film are you using now? Will that be the next one to go?...
