    I have pushed Kodak's Ektachrome 200G to EI 800 for some night images. Link to Kodak's site: http://www.kodak.com/global/en/profe....11.20.9&lc=en

    Kodak does not make a 400 speed slide film any more.

    Never tried Kodak's Portia 800 film: http://www.kodak.com/global/en/profe....14.22.7&lc=en

    On the consumer side, Kodak Ultra Max 800, which I have never tried either: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQueri...q-locale=en_US

    Thanks for the offer but I'll go with the readily available Fuji 800 film for now and possibly try the natura 1600.

    Sure thing. Let me know if you change your mind.

    For medium format, all you have is Kodak Portra 800 and Fuji Pro 800Z.

    If you are going to get the small-format stuff, try to get Press (AKA Superia in Press Package) instead of plain Superia. They are identical emulsions, but Press always comes in 36-exp. rolls, and also is "professional". This means that it comes in matching emulsion batches and is aged to optimum color balance before it is shipped. The matching batches helps a lot when shooting multiple rolls.

    I've shot the Superia 1600 with very good results.

    A local guy here said a camera shop told him that it had been discontinued. Checking on the web shows otherwise. It's on the Fuji site and I ordered some from B&H not too long ago.

    Just for interest's sake it would appear that Konica once did a colour neg at 3200. There's a seller advertising it on the U.K. e-bay in the film section right now.

    I have a few rolls in the freezer....I think it was discontinued a while before Konica finished film manufactore altogether.

    It's obviously grainy, but interesting to use. I find that, with my equipment and working, a rating of 3200 is probably optimistic, and it seems to give better results at 1600. (Like most color neg, any underexposure seems to produce dull milky colors and clogged shadows). Best results seem to be with printing (or scanning) the negs yourself, rather than one-hour D&P.

    This film was made once each year, and a reservation was required with your local dealer to get some. It was very hard to get and in great demand.

    It was surprisingly sharp and fine grained. They had a great team working on it.

    That's interesting, I didn't realise that the film was scarce in its time.

    I was saving my cassettes for some suitable subjects anyway, but I'll treat it with particular respect as I can't see anyone else producing anything comparable in the future.

    Seems that a lot of special skills have been lost with Konica, with films like this and their infra-red materials.

    Yes, I tried to get some and my local dealers told me I had missed the deadline for ordering it. I had to wait for a year or more before it was manufactured again, as all of the current batch was pre-sold.

    I knew a number of Konica engineers, but never discussed this with them. They did acknowledge that it was made once a year and that it was rare.

    I still have a few 120 format rolls of Konica 3200. It is seriously out of date and I don't intend to take pictures with it . What it is good for is airport x-ray negotiations. A few rolls mixed in with other film in the clear plastic bag can earn the much desired "hand inspection", .... sometimes.
