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

    A 50 sheet box of 8x10 Porta 400 sounds _very_ tempting!

    The new company is British so expect some innovations and greater flexibility. More importantly they are free from the marketing influences of Peres and his cronies.

    A UK/EU distributor of specialist orders would be a good start - avoid import duty...

    You might find more products made in the UK as well.

    It's worth remembering that Eastman Kodak made a huge mistake when they sub-contracted distribution of all Kodak photographic products in the UK to Sangers who soon went bankrupt. Distribution was then taken over by a company formed by ex Kodak employees who knew the business inside out.

    In other countries Kodak closed their own efficient distribution centres only to sub-contract with similar poor results.

It is an unusual C-41 colour negative film where some colour dyes have been swapped or something like that, so that green renders as pink or purple on the final print. Its spectral sensitivity is about the same as for regular C-41 colour films.

    Fingers crossed.

    I've been shooting Fuji CN simply because it's more readily available and a _lot_ cheaper. But I far prefer how easily portra scans.

    I'm so glad you said that, it bothered me that somebody else suggested otherwise, but I couldn't remember exactly where I read about where it came from, I knew that it was C-41 but I can't remember who we discovered the company was, I believe it's FOMA of course the company would never admit this because they want to make it look special, but I'm pretty sure that they is produced by either Rollei or FOMA...

    Nevertheless Lomography at the moment actually offers it as "Colournegative Infraredfilm"

    (At least in their German Version of their shop. Lomography do not let me access another language version.)
