    Is this the "new" (did they say emulsion or product) spoken about on Inside Analog Photo? Thankfully I can take full advantage of this since I just bought a 4X5

    Slightly off topic but does anyone know how archival Ekar is. I have shot primarily Ektachrome for color but I'm going to start with some color neg including Ektar. I have heard about 60 Years.

    Thank you Kodak. Please don't discontinue Portra in sheet film.
    Look forward to make an 8x10 contact print from the Ektar film.

    Not bad for the Evil Corporation that is not "committed" in its "support" of analog photography. I'm sure someone will find a downside to this, and whinge about it.

    Darn!! I don't have my 8x10 yet... can't afford the one I want. Once I do though Ektar 100 will be my film.

    Kodak did not have a holiday yesterday AFAIK, just schools, banks and local governments. Many people do take this week off as it is the school winter holiday.

    Kodak's day is 8 - 5 in most locations.

    I believe more announcements are in the works, but not sure yet. I'm sure that they did this just to spite nay sayers on APUG!

    Okay I'll go first Mike.

    Honestly, I really don't like the name Ektar. It sounds an awful lot like this and that is not a good thing.

    They should call it Kodacolour CLS. In which CLS= Custer's Last Stand.

    Apart from that, I will reserve judgement. I may well like it more in LF if and when I take up RA4.

    Kodak: PPPPPPPPLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEAAAAASSSSEEEEEE keep Portra!!!!!


    I've only shot 1 roll of Ektar in 35mm, none in 120. Is it like E100VS in negative format?

    also, will these be available in 10sht boxes onyl, or will 50sheeters be there too?

    Mike it's not the film division who aren't committed to Analog photography, they've shown that many times over the last few years.

    Our problem is that Kodak as a corporation is struggling to find it's new identity in the market place, and sometimes that means we get mixed messages about their commitment to the products we use.

    This roll out of Ektar in large formats is another positive step.
