Re: RIP Gottfried Klose (GK Film) passed away

I apologize. The story about Kahl passing away was fake news. Someone apparently saw the news about Klose on Facebook, more fake news from Facebook, and jumped to the conclusion it was Kahl and sent me an email regarding Kahl passing away. Although I will say that Kahl is a hard guy to contact.

Re: RIP Gottfried Klose (GK Film) passed away

I believe Alfred Kahl may have also passed away. Can anyone verify the death of Alfred Kahl. I understand ADOX got the perforators from Kahl. J.S.

Re: Kodak prices

The new prices are in the price change bulletin for December 2017. Canadian prices are $38.15CDN. You can verify by calling (800) 621 FILM. The empty cartridge from Kodak is exactly the cartridge used by Kodak for Super 8 film.

Kodak prices

Please note that Kodak increased price of all Super 8 products to $29.99 from $25.95. This is the price on the Kodak site. The price from B&H and other resellers is higher. Is this a hint for the price of the new E100? Actually $29.99 wouldn't be too bad but I have a feeling the E100 price will be m...

I hope Kodak uses this new found wealth to develop new film stocks.

Re: kodak

Kodak shares spike 200%. Is it the announcement of the new Ektachrome? No it is Kodakcoin the new cryptocurrency that allows photographers to track illicit use of their work on the internet. My only regret is that I didn't buy Kodak when it was under $3.00 a share. Oh, why didn't I have faith in big...

Re: The return of Ektachrome - CES 2017

Early information from Kodak indicates that S8 E100D will be priced at about $35/cart and E100D(7296?) will be available as 16mm by special order with a minimum. 16mm will not be a standard product and not be sold as 100ft spools. Minimum order will be something like 10 to 20 400ft spools at about $...

Re: kodak

Kodak Alaris making Ektachrome just doesn't add up. Our friends at Ferrania have shown that manufacturing color reversal film is not a simple nor inexpensive matter. Producing color reversal on a commercial scale requires complex chemistry and equipment and the personnel to put it together. Where is...

Re: kodak

Google Kodak Alaris. The comments are not encouraging. Dissatisfied employees, layoffs, difficulty making payroll. I think Kodak shoveled off all the failing divisions and products to Alaris and said go for it boys and good luck.

Re: kodak

Naturally we associate the name Kodak with film. But in reality Kodak is a printer,printing and document company with a little real estate thrown in. So, to the decision makers at Kodak the printing company, film may be at the bottom of the list for any action. Regarding Hollywood's need for film, c...

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...
