    Whenever anybody says "I don't know, but I think all E6 films are discontinued" it all gets filed away for the next time somebody searches on Google.

    So stop it.

    E6 film is widely available, and long may it remain so.

    Please don't condemn me for stating my frustration in trying to acquire film for my professional occupation. In 4x5, right now, there is NO Kodak E-6 film except at a few dealers that have existing stock..none is being shipped from Kodak. Maybe they'll decide to do a new emulsion run, I don't know. Just call any Kodak dealer and ask...what they say to me is "It is discontinued". This is from large dealers that sell everything Kodak makes.

    There seems to be enough Fuji E-6 stocks for me to believe (in 4x5) that they may be still in production, despite what FUJI USA told me over the phone.

    And Please, Please, Please don't judge the availability of a particular film just by it being shown on a web page of a vendor. Many vendors don't update their pages very fast.

    There are a few choices from Kodak, E100VS, E100G, and Elite Chrome, the E100G the one that people tent to rave about, but I prefer Elite Chrome 100EB This is a personal preference.

    I admit not being a Fuji fan and I have only tried Sensia I did like it as much as Elite Chrome, there is also Velvia, and Velvia is the Fuji film that people say is best. I like Kodak film so I am just presenting choices here.

    Slide film and processing can be a bit on the pricey side, but still I would recommend getting your hands on several different kinds and trying them out to see what you like best, think of it as an investment. Remember that Chrome can act different depending on how you view it, scans, prints, and projection will not look the same, and prints and scans depend a lot on the skill of the person making them.

    And YES, all five of the films I have mentioned are readily available either on line, or at a camera shop. I know a few places that have Sensia on the shelf right now today that I could walk in and buy. I would also like to mention that Kodak's film sales partner that handles their direct on line sales does not 1/4 of what Kodak makes.

    Please, please tell me where I can get Kodak E100G in 4x5 current in-date (not short dated) film stocks. I need about 300 sheets. I have exhausted all my resources.

    It might be worth putting in a call to Kodak and ask them what the current status of 4x5 E6 is. Do they have it in stock? Is it out at the factory but getting ready for another coating? Etc. Peter is a nice guy. The time I called him about TMZ, after Freestyle and others said it was discontinued, Peter called around and informed me that they were out at the factory, but a new coating was being done a month from then.

    I am talking to a few distributors that I use. Hopefully I will get some news out of them. I can probably get you approx 150-200 sheets of current dated E100G. PM me if you are interested.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    The OP was clearly not asking about 4x5, as Kodachrome was only 35mm. You said there are "no E-6 films marketed at the present time." That statement encompasses all formats.
    A quick search of one of the fast-turnover vendors like B+H or Adorama would show current E-6 films.
    If all this stuff was "in the pipeline" with no more being produced, i.e., a mass extinction of E-6, don't you think there would have been a thread or two about it here?

    It wasn't a very responsible thing to say, the way you said it. The point about it turning up in search results very apt.

    I certainly hope you find the 4x5 you are seeking.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Did you try Calumet or J. Cohen Photography, or Amazon.com?

    The OP was about 35mm, and my reply was about 35mm.
