    Stone, thanks for the offer on the $90 per box direct from Japan thing. I'll keep that in mind. I was squirming on my last purchase at $80 per box. So, I'm tapped out at this point.

    Also, thanks for the update on V-100f too. I was unaware of that having also been dropped. Again, the USA site of course still shows that available........

    When Ferrania fires up the E-6 line again, perhaps they can arrange to get the Ektachrome recipe from Kodak and cook some up?

    They could contract the supply back to Alaris and make millions of photographers happy.

    That's a seriously good idea...

    PE has said there is far more to duplicating a film than just mixing up some more emulsion to the same recipe. But presumably Alaris could do it without too much trouble, so if Ferrania could contract with them to make Ektachrome-in-all-but-name sold as Ferrania... well anything that seems too much to hope for probably is! E100G and some kind of 400 film please!

    As far as I can tell, they have committed to reproducing film they made in the past. I don't think Kodak ever allowed anybody else to make Kodachrome, so just forget about it..

    They are still going to update it I think though, it will be better than the last version at least.

    Kodak abandoned the Kodachrome patents years ago, so the info is all there for someone to make it.

    Let's not turn this into a Kodachrome thread, seriously...

    Why should someone invest in a own production, just to have a product toll-manufactured by another company?
    Well, we know nothing about the background of Film Ferrania, so we actually cannot answer this.

    Definitely not....I think we've exhausted that line of thought very thoroughly in other threads! I suppose I was just speculating, from the previous post, whether Kodak had released similar information on the E6 process and films, bearing in mind that it quickly became the standard process for the other slide film makers, Agfa, Fuji. Konica and Ferrania themselves.
