Kodak Profoto XL 100?
What's happened to Kodak Profoto XL 100? As recently as last year, Unique Photo was stocking it, but no one else -- and now not even them. I was dubious at first, but decided I liked it well enough for the price.
Superia 100 is gone. Kodak Gold 100 is gone. Now this. Is there any color negative 100 speed consumer film left?
Never heard of this film.
Lomography 100 Color Negative. Might be the best deal in film right now. 3 rolls of 36 for about $8. It is clearly made in USA by Kodak and would bet it is Gold 100.
All this has happened before, and all this will happen again.
It's not Gold 100, it's very under saturated, I'm pretty sure it's different film for different markets. I used to see it on ebay a lot and that's where I got mine from, but it seems to be gone from there as well.
You live in a different country!

It was liked by many people, including me.
It is discontinued.
At the moment, apart Ektar and a couple of ISO 160 films, no.

Call back in a year or 2 and it might be different.
Meanwhile buy what is there: buy fresh, keep the factories rolling!

While it's not 100, I believe Kodak Colorplus is still available. I'm seeing it in my usual film haunts online. While I understand that Alaris Kodak is trying to find their way, I am upset with the way they are treating photographic film. Though in contemplation it's no different than the way Fuji et al, is treating it I suppose.
The only growth in film seems to be in the black and white world.
Kodak Colorplus used to be easily found here in Shanghai. I tried a roll because it is dirt cheap, around $2. The results were not that great so I never went back to it. I'm not sure if this film can be found now as Kodak supply has gotten rather problematic in many parts of Asia. Portra is now a rare thing to find and Tri-X is really hard to find.
Thanks everyone. Maybe I'm just not that fussy, but I made several prints this weekend from a roll that I developed (my last?) and they look pretty decent to me. For some reason it scans with a gold cast that might put some people off (and appeal to others). But in the prints, the colors are neutral -- cool and muted and quite nice. Oh, well. It's on to something else, I suppose...
I've spotted the odd roll of this in our lab - wondered what it was.!
Kodak seems hell bent on getting out of film. I know the arguments about profits, and I am not begrudging them that right. They have to make a profit to stay in business. I realize that film is also a niche market these days, but They are continuing to kill off film lines and have publicly stated that there is no future in film and they are not interested in furthering development. Why? There are a number of Kodak emulsions that I really liked. PRofoto XL/100 being two. Colorplus is ok, but not my favorite. I really liked the Ektachromes and I'm not even going to start on Kodachrome. Here in NE Pennsylvania, kodak film is getting hard to find and my suppliers tell me that Kodak is getting even more rude than they were in the past. I don't understand why.
Harmon is doing well with their film business, Adox,Rollei,Agfa,and even Fuji seems to be doing ok. Ferrania is even thinking about getting back into film, though I don't know how much farther that has come since the big announcements several months ago. Why doesn't Kodak Alaris just sell off their film lines and get out of the business entirely if its so bad? IT just really makes no sense. /rant off
