    Humm, interesting. Isn't 35mm movie film identical to 35mm still film, as far as the the mechanics go? So you could get this stuff and just bulk load it into 35mm cassettes? Wonder if it's something like E100G/Elitechrome?

    Hope I spelled your name properly... good to see you're still 'round.

    What you say about individual 35mm cannisters (and lack of protection they offer) seems correct: Last night I was double Zip lock bagging 35mm, 120 and 4x5 boxes - all new purchases. In the process, I drew out the air (suction) beforehand. While suctioning new, boxed,cannistered and wrapped 10 packs of kodak E100G 35mm, I could smell/taste the fumes from the fresh rolls - meaning that the cannisters do NOT seal the films airtight as one would assume. This did not occur with the 120 rolls or

    btw: I use double bagged ziplock bags and Nylofume (antifumigation bags) as a gas and moisture barrier. You live and learn.

    Yeah, I was born near Rochester, NY - home of Kodak. I have a nostalgia for the company I guess.

    There might be a startlingly large minimum order for the Eastman Ektachrome E100D movie film. Like one master roll worth. Shooting a movie uses amazingly large amounts of film.

    You can buy it in 400 foot rolls in 35mm, 100 foot rolls or spools for 16mm, and Super 8. You don't have to order a master roll to get it. Yet.

    Yeahbut a 400' roll is over $400 (saw the price in another thread) and four times bigger than my bulk loader can handle. Might not be TOO hard to cut down to four 100' rolls but it would sure be an expensive mistake if you messed it up.

    Someone might be able to make a few bucks cutting these down to 100' rolls for re-sell though.

    As long as the developing characteristics are the same as what was recently killed, I'd be willing to try a 100foot roll.
    We ask Simon for everything else...Hey, Simon, how about Ilford buying a bunch of that film, splitting it and selling it in 100 foot rolls!

    Roger, it's $475 direct from Kodak, which seems to be as cheap as it comes. I haven't found cheaper.

    This film seems expensive compared to the B&W bulk rolls that we're all used to buying, but it is less expensive than buying leftover stocks of E100VS or E100G. You get 18 rolls per 100 foot bulk, so you should get 72 rolls per 400 foot roll. That works out to $6.60 per roll. Factor in your shipping costs and it's a little more per roll, but still cheaper than the film that has been discontinued. What would it cost you to buy 72 factory loaded 36-exposure rolls of E100VS?
