    Ektar 100 in 120 free sample

    I was having lunch in my office when I decided to send an email to Kodak asking for a sample of Ektar 100 in 120. I received an email back from Kodak within 10 minutes! Be darned if a roll didn't show up in the mail today right from Rochester. I'm impressed with Kodak's customer service that would send a sample to some guy in Northern Canada. Kudos to you, Kodak.

    Also, on the Kodak web-site I see that if you buy 5 rolls of B+W film and send in the bar codes from the cartons, they will send you a $5 rebate back. They definitely seem to be paying attention to the film business.

    Yeah, that's the same Kodak that is regularly bashed and boycotted by some here for its lack of "commitment" to its loyal film customers.

    Who would have thought they would be so agreeable. I heard on another forum something to the effect that some people who asked for samples of 35mm ektar were denied unless they were professional reviewers and could prove it.

    You can't blame them. I saw at least a few samples show up on ebay. There are obviously lots of people trying to take advantage of that system. Sad really, especially if samples don't make it to people who really should have them.

    I shot them off an e-mail using their customer service form (couldn't find anywhere else appropriate to send the request). I'll let you know when I hear back from them! It would be a nice roll to test my new-to-me 120 camera: A No.2 Folding Autographic Brownie!

    Publicizing this on the Internet is exactly what is likely to kill it.

    They won't give samples forever. They probably have already stopped.

    I called Kodak and they said they already ran out of free samples. They are aware (as it always happens) of the people who sell these on Ebay. Someone is always trying to make a free buck of someone else.
