    Who are the Players?

    Looking for names of suppliers/manufacturers who still make 70mm film. I know Kodak has the Portra series, and I think Efke makes some.
    I have a Pentax 645 with a mint 70mm back for it, and wonder if I should pursue the film or simply consider the back a museum piece.

    Thanks,

    QG: B&H lists unperforated Portra 160NC available on special order. Two kinds of reels.

    Developing it OTOH could be interesting.

    Thanks.
    Developing it (or rather: having it developed) would be the minor problem.
    I need Type II.

    Who is using unperforated 70 mm film that they discontinue the perforated version, yet keep the unperforated?

    There are a couple labs near Charlotte, NC that still advertise 70mm processing, and cater to school photographers. One is United Promotions http://www.upilab.com/catalog/3.html and the other is Academy Productions http://www.picacademy.com/lab_services.php?cat=21. I've never used either (I don't have a 70mm back). The links above are to their price lists; Academy also sells 70mm film, apparently.
