    Despite all their bull, I no longer trust Kodak....they were trumpeting the wonders of E100G as being the ideal Kodachrome substitute and the best thing since sliced bread, only a few months ago.

    I'm sure color neg is the next to go....fresh Kodak color neg is being shipped out at £1 a roll in Poundland here in the UK. Piled high, as many rolls as you can carry. Obviously dumping stocks.

    Don't think I'll bother with a final Ektachrome order, better to start to get used to Fuji.

    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.

    It's cut from 35mm stock, so it seems doubtful E100D will survive.

    I hope that Fuji capitalizes appropriately.

    I just ordered 20 rolls from B&H. Now I await the price hike from Fuji.

    Capitalizes on what? If barely measurable demand for E6 materials prompted Kodak's decision, what's left for Fuji?

    If you've got E6 film on hand, smoke 'em while you got 'em. Labs won't be encouraged to continue E6 service by this news.

    The demand is there, just in a niche market, like all of film now. And Kodak in their infinitely short foresight is incapable of scaling down appropriately.

    I've been shooting E-6 film exclusively since '07, but I never tried the Ektachromes until a year ago. I love them (both the VS and G)! The only thing I don't like about the Kodak color pallette is the way it depicts blue skies as an almost cyan color. Kodak's greens also aren't as lovely as Fuji's. But the browns! The yellows and reds!

    Neither gritty, industrial urban landscapes nor ruin porn will ever be the same.

    yeknom02: I don't see that you have many options. Other than the also discontinued Astia, I think you're pretty much stuck with Provia I have yet to try Rollei's lone offering. I'm checking various vendors for pricing on the two Ektachromes to see if I can afford a small brick of each to go in my freezer with my stock of Fuji T64, which was also recently discontinued.

    If Fuji/Agfa/Rollei quit making E-6 materials, what's left for the lomo photographers to Xpro? I don't particularly care for the Xpro look but if all E-6 goes away the only Xpro left will be to soup C-41 in B&W chemistry, cause you can't Xpro B&W in C-41 chemistry unless you like blank film!

    As for me, I still like projecting slides, and digital projection can't hold a candle to analog projection. It's silly to take a photo with an 8MP or higher digicam, then throw 3/4 of the resolution away to project. 1.75MP (the res. of a 2:3 photo on an HDTV)? Bah! Humbug.

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    This news won't be encouragement to the remaining labs with E6 lines. Shoot it while you can.

    So much for my plans for a big Super 8 Ektachrome project.
