Much easyer to make profit with a few really good products tha a big range newcomers need months to understand.
The drawback with starting shooting film, is all the question about what film suit the user best. Many newbees have asked me if the really need to test all the films on the market.
So we've lost 160NC and 160VC. No surprise, after what Kodak did with the 400 speed Portra films, but still a disappointment. It remains to be seen how much farther Kodak will carry the one-size-fits-all philosophy in the future.
Humm no 8X10 sheet size as far as I can tell! Didn't Kodak stop all manufacture of sheet film larger than 4X5?
First of all, there's already a thread on this in the Product Availability forum. Secondly, on Kodak's web page (the Q&A page) it states that it will be available in 35mm, 120, 220, 4x5, and 8x10. In one press release, it was also mentioned it would be available in other sizes from Canham.
"The new Kodak Professional Portra 160 film will be available in 35mm, 120/220, 4x5 and 8x10 sheet format from March. It will also be sold, via Canham Cameras, in larger formats.

Ah, I see. Interesting that they don't mention 8x10 in the tech pub. So, maybe 8x10 (and larger) sheets are now special order only via Canham?
I actually don't see 4x5 mentioned in the tech sheet. Just 'Sheets' and that they will come in 10-sheet boxes. Presumably they are referring to both 4x5 and 8x10.
