    Well, at one time, Kodachrome was available in 4x5 sheets and 120 (I have three 120 rolls still in my freezer and would like to get the processed as B&W once I figure out the chemistry).

    E100VS from Kodak is good, as is Velvia 50 from Fujifilm. I'm not sure how similar they are. Kodakchrome had a very unique look.
    Kind of what I was thinking, too.

    Well, yeah, to be completely accurate. I don't think the OP was referring to those, though.
    Especially the 4x5. I mean, it's been more than a half-century...
    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.

    They show 2 emulsions, but they don't have any. You can't buy any there.

    They actually show 5 or so on the Kodak site.

    I find it in-stock at several photo companies in sheets and rolls.

    Yeah, PHOTOTONE, so go digging into hard-to-find corners of the retailing world to find your loot! Just like Ron said!

    At risk of starting a brand war, let me suggest you try fuji astia 100f or provia 400x, with a mild (half stop or so) underexposure if you really want more saturation in the primaries. Better yet, just bracket in small steps and see what you like.

    Keith;

    On one site, the front page for "color reversal films" was 2/3 Fuji and 1/3 Kodak (approximately). So, I can agree with what you said. In fact, the only reversal film in my freezer at this time is Fuji!

    And, they are not hard to find. Adorama, B&H, and Freestyle all feature reversal films with Kodak there along with Fuji.

    I found some E-6 films on some retailers, but in fact i am trying to find slides for 4x5 and i hardly can find only 1 or 2, I was hoping to find Velvia 50 and i couldn't, not impressed for Astia, and i was hoping to get Velvia over Provia, and E100G was available few days ago and suddenly out of stock, it may be in stock again but when and where i have to keep searching.
    Lucky that i bought some films in 120 formats due to discontinuation.

    I did some calling around today RE: Kodak 4x5. Though I heard a few different things, the one thing I heard over and over was that Kodak has discontinued E100VS in 4x5. E100G is still listed as available but on back-order from Kodak (all 3 distributors said that, too.) Theories tended towards Kodak doing a single E-6 film (similar to the Portra 400 NC/VC becoming Portra 400.) Doesn't really help too much, but hopefully this will be seen as it was intended--information. All I can say for certain is that if you like E100VS in 4x5, maybe pick up some while there is quantity out there and before the official discontinuance is announced.
