Re: kodak

judging from the comment in the annual report about releasing the kodak name and symbol to the company making the S8 camera, Kodak is not making the camera. They have farmed that out. Actually while the camera is nice addition, there are many S8 cameras waiting for a good color reversal. The entire ...

Re: kodak

Kodak has raised the price of S8 TRI-X from $20.50 to $25.95. Bringing TRI-X price in line with other super 8 products. B&H has increased their price to be more in line Kodak's new price but not as high as the V3 products. Unfortunately Kodak does not give retail sellers much of discount that is why...

Re: kodak

Checking the Kodak 2016 annual report shows that the film division contributes less than 10% to Kodak revenues. Kodak is a commercial printing company not a film company and if big Hollywood studios had not agreed to support film I doubt there would be Kodak film. Only two companies make the bulk of...

kodak

Kodak stock has been dropping almost daily since they announced the first profitable quarter. Although making a profit, sales have been dropping that is why the stock is falling off the cliff. The stock has gone from over $30 to under $7. The market does not have faith that Kodak will be a viable co...

Re: Is Kodachrome still processed ANYWHERE in the world?

Gary is retired. His daughter was doing transfers only. For processing Ektachrome try either Dwayne's in Parson KS or Spectra Film and Video in North Hollywood

Re: Process EM-26

Your best bet is Martin Baumgarten in Plattsburgh New York. He was under Plattsburgh Photo. Don't get your hopes too high. Age fog has probably wiped out any image.

Re: Is Kodachrome still processed ANYWHERE in the world?

I believe there were several posts to this forum concerning a group in the Czech Republic that had successfully processed Kodachrome several years ago about the time Kodak discontinued processing. Search the forum and see what you can find. Their results looked decent. To my knowledge no one has pro...

Re: Super 8 Film Lab Suggestions

In Australia/NZ try NANO Lab. Not certain ANDEC in Berlin still processes S8. They may contract out Reversal Lab in NL. There is also a lab in France.

Re: Super 8 Film Lab Suggestions

In the USA there are several labs: Spectra Film and Video in North Hollywood, Cinelab in Boston area, Dwaynes(color only). There are probably more. Check Kodak website for more labs.

Re: Kodachrome K40 chemistry question

Ferrania can barely manage the black and white film they are selling let alone a complicated color process. In the "day" there were a number of color films using processes similar to Kodachrome. Seems like every country in the East had some film that was unique to that country. Maybe someone can dig...

Re: Wittner Cinetec

Wittner is still in business. They moved from the Hamburg area to So. Germany and must reorganize the shop and equipment. Apparently this is a bigger job than they realized. Remember when you are dealing with film you require a light tight dark area to do the work plus there are equipment issues whe...

Re: Kodak Super8 revival - Media coverage

Definitely not Kodachrome. Not up to Ektachrome 100D standard either. Maybe more like VNF 7240?

Re: Regular 8mm Black & White Print

Dennis, Over a year ago you were sold out of TRI-X 8mm. Have you restocked? I see it is listed on your web site and order form for $45.

Re: Regular 8mm Black & White Print

Do you plan to sell in the future or will it remain safely in the freezer? Do you plan to respool to usable spool lengths or leave on large spool and sell in bulk?

Re: Fomapan DS8mm 100ft rolls USA

Actually i was the first importer of Fomapan 8mm in the USA in the 90's and early 2000's. I used to go to SF airport and pick it up by the pallet load. After 911 things got complicated and had to go through a lot of paperwork and driving between airport and customs in SF. I guess I wasn't big enough...
