    I wouldn't trust them for long. Right now on Kodak's Pro site they are still advertising the advantages
    of Ektar film for pros because it is available in 8X10 sheets; at the same time they announcing its
    discontinuance in this very size on another page. A very fickle company indeed. They did the same
    thing with their flagship TMY 400 film. Good thing I've got a film freezer.

    Without demand for a product it's all fluff. I do suspect there will still be demand, but what do I know?
    Plenty of demand for MP film. Even when just little old me shoots a total POS, I'll still go through over 100,000 feet of the stuff.

    I think the single roll packing of TMY120 has been discontinued and changed to package of 5 rolls insteads......am I correct?

    The Vision motion picture films are outstanding. I've used Vision 2 in Super 8 and 16mm. I'd expect Vision 3 50D to be a wonderful stock.

    Funny, my impression of you was that you were neither old nor little.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    When they brought the new Portras to market, they mentioned specifically that it was based on Kodak's new Vision 3 technology. If they bring out new movie film stock, there is a good chance that the innovations that went into it will benefit us still shooters sooner or later, without us having to remove remjet backings.
    Trying to be the best of whatever I am, even if what I am is no good.
