It has Bell & Howell perfs, but I doubt this would be a problem for any 35mm still camera.

Kodak's product page on the 100D film shows it is available in 400 foot rolls in 35mm, 100 foot rolls and spools in 16mm, and Super 8 cartridges. Once the last of the E100 and Elite Chrome film is gone off of store shelves, this would be a good replacement provided the contrast and saturated color are to the photographer's liking.
I suppose when it's the last way to get Kodak reversal film it's worth almost any price, but this stuff is very expensive. Not the usual price break for buying in bulk, or for buying movie film vs still film! Currently $475 for 400 ft. That's what has kept me from scooping up a few rolls for the fridge.

Also note that Kodak says it will turn your chemicals pink, and gives tips for how to wash the pink back off of your equipment. Might be worth a heads-up to your local lab if you send it there instead of processing it yourself. They might not appreciate this!
