    I bought some 100 ISO SOLO Dynamic Color Film at Yankee One Dollar today. It says at the bottom, "Film Made in Germany" and Distributed by Solo International Corporation and it expired in January of 2006.

    What's funny is the film canister has Japanese writing on it. Oddity but hey, for a buck I can't go wrong, I guess.

    Are there any store brands that you suspect might be made by Kodak? I am unaware that Kodak has ever changed its policy.

    Enjoyed your website!

    Dear Gerald,

    Thanks for the kind words about www.rogerandfrances.com.

    No, I have no ideas about whom Kodak may supply. Film is more the area of expertise of my wife Frances Schultz and she doesn't know either. It's just that both of us recall being surprised recently (<3 years?) by Kodak's somewhat quiet observation that this was now the case. It may of course be that no-one bought Kodak own-brand films, though I'd be surprised if that were so.

    Cheers,

    Roger

    Kodak appear to make the private brand film for the German drugstore chain "dm".

    I have not heard that Ferrania went out of the film business.

    Our Walmart here used to have a film called "Rave" which was made by Konica. Its long gone now. They brought in Polaroid film as its replacement and it was made by Agfa. It too has now been pulled and Fuji and Kodak are all they have now. Blacks cameras had their own film made by Fuji. The other poster is correct Superstore uses Fuji for its films. All these places are in western Canada.
