    Ouch. I did read the thread, but obviously not closely enough. My apologies.

    I'd rather have Aerochrome EIR back. Just throwing it out there.

    PE, intuitively, what is your best guess, how long will E6 be with us? I shot analogue precisely because of E6. I don't think C-41 could do it for me. I would probably go back to digital. I already regret that I discovered analogue photography so late. Last two years have been really, really great.

    In 2009 a renown scientist in the field of colour films predicted that there would not be any colour films manufactured by 2011...

    So much about predictions. Have to polish my crystal ball now...

    Film will be around for a long time since we keep buying it. There´s probably more people shooting film today than there was 30 years ago.

    The question is not about film being around, but rather about E6 being around, and also whether C41 is up to the task of replacing E6 as a viable color film.

    I cannot predict anything! I am with AgX. I have no crystal ball. I can say that sames are tiny compared to color neg. And, a well done color neg can actually exceed the quality of any E6 product.

    While I quite agree on matters like colour accuracy, there is the matter of (negative) display materials having much poorer dynamic range (than chromes) because they're reflective instead of transmissive.

    I rarely see E6 materials on display. It is much more common for backlit work to be made on Kodak Duratrans RA4 material, or Fuji and Ilford equivalents from color negatives or Lightjet from E6 originals.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    That's with prints though, it's hard to know the dynamic range of a C41 negative printed on say motion picture print film, the problem though may be the same as the problem for E6 though, because MP is moving towards digital presentation as well. There is an advantage there though, you only really need one emulsion at one speed which is fairly slow, so it can be produced in larger batches, and lasts longer in storage, then an E6 film.

    C-41 and motion print films are not optimized on each other concerning gamma.

    However there is RA-4 transparency film, that has a Dmax above 3.
