this is a very interesting read about film bases!
Perhaps im being confused with motion picture films being polyester nowdays?
I thought that kodaks ESTAR base was used on most of their films too?
I thought that it would have been logical to use polyester base over acetate because it does not degrade nowhere near as fast as acetate and wont get vinegar syndrome.
Anyway ive just been reading here that kodak is shutting down their acetate film plant, they will be buying it from other sources.
