    I just spoke to B&H and they told me there is no indication of any discontinuance of this film in their system or any publictions pointing this out from Kodak, so he said not to worry. but they dont have an estimated time of arrival anyway...

    I have 3,000 ft of Portra 160NC so I'm good to go! It's unperforated, but my converted Nikkormat handles it well.

    I don't believe anybody any more because how many times have film manufacturers sworn on a stack of bibles recently that they had no plans to discontinue a particular film, and before you know it it's gone ?, which is why I have enough of the films I like for about the next ten years shooting in my basement film freezer.

    There's no shortage of Kodak Portra in the U.K, there's more than you can shake a stick at from internet retailers, but many bricks and mortar shops don't want to stock film because of the uncertain demand for a perishable product with a dated shelf life that they will have to sell off cheap once it becomes outdated.

    Oh well, that's entirely different then. I've heard there's one store in the Atlanta area that stocks film and even some darkroom stuff, but I was unable to find it. I don't know WHERE I'd go to buy film without ordering it, other than some consumer Fuji C41 in 35mm. I order everything. I pretty much assume everyone else does now too.

    Yes, Roger... with the exception of the occasional run over to Freestyle.

    I totally agree. A few months ago there was a question as to whether Fuji Reala 120 was actually discontinued - most saying "no". Guess what? It's gone now. You can't even find it on Adorama's web site, and it's listed as discontinued on B&H's.


    PS Kodak Portra 160 in 35mm: Adorama has about 40 packs of the 5 roll packs left after I relieved them of 16 packs a few hours ago. B&H is out of stock.

    I just got a 5 pack of Porta 160(120) from the FPP store looks like they have it in 35mm as well
