    Quite possible, i dont see anything happening anytime soon, Kodak has had plenty of time to produce smaller batches of film if they really wanted to, its not like they dont have the infrastructure in place to do so.

    I don't believe that is true. Their remaining coating equipment is designed (and suited) for large product runs.

    Egads!!

    I was thinking of that Senior VP of Marketing and Product Development at Freestyle? He has a beard (at least in his company photo). He's American (I assume). And Freestyle already used to sell direct-branded Ferrania products...

    Kodaks production is sized for cine cams and cine projection. Stills is a side line.

    Their management have also seemed like their production - big and unsuited to change. They held the record for payment after patent compromise for a decade. Not the record you want.

    Thats true, but they must hold smaller coating machines in their research facilities if they really wanted to produce smaller runs of film.
    Its inevitable that its going to prove uneconomic to use their full scale coaters when their market for cine film dries up. The question is whether its worth reinvesting in producing new machinery to make smaller production runs.

    Ok, this will make you happy then dan, because I hope they make some 8x10 Fim Ferrania so I can shoot it in my new 8x10... :-p meanwhile I'll shoot lots of Delta100 and HP5+

    See I totally left out Kodak

    But in truth, I will be shooting a bunch of Ektascan...

    But seriously does anyone know if Film Ferrania will be making sheet film (eventually)?

    Yeah, I know, especially for the first run, I'll be lucky if they even make 120...
