Considering the importance best to give it its own thread (from viewtopic.php?f=1&t=21329&start=0


Maybe one needs to go to real-printed publications for real news... :)

Confirmed... Juergen congratulations on the scoop.

It is not a joke, just wait for tuesday. :)
And the issue 2/2010 of Schmalfilm for details. In 2 weeks.

Maybe Kodachrome can be forgotten after all?

We need tot draw up lists of cameras who can handle this one, ISO 100 Daylight. How will it be nodged?
Kind regards,

André

This is great news! Though it might spell the end of 64t. Maybe the initial hypothesis regarding 64t was correct: that they had several cryogenic coffers of the material to use up. And super 8 64t might have done the job. If that is true, I am thrilled kodak are going to continue with a colour reversal option for super 8, even though it might mean that we are effectively down one stock - ie 64t.

As long as I can continue to feed my projectors. I've not shot 64 0r 100 to date so I can't formulate an opinion on how happy I'll be reflecting back upon the days of K40.

i wonder how sharp it will be - thats a lot of grain to deal with - and this is from me shooting 100D in regular 8. And with most cameras not having neutral density filters or variable shutters, it might be a tough use in bright sun....great for low light though.

I think 100D looks much better than 64T. It is almost rare for me to see 64T films that I think looks really good, the grain and the blueish grain (if slightly undrexposed) does not please my eyes. With lots of sunlight 64T can look good, though. But100D is the better emulsion in my book.

This is simply fantastic news!

64t wasn't the horrid stock that many thought - I actually liked it - of course I shoot it mainly in good daylight - but it is good under tungsten!

100d has a different colour palette - but one which I love!

The great thing is that just about every camera worth owning reads 100d, unlike 64t .

What does this mean for companies like Wittner etc?

I know it would mean that buying Super 8 100d packaged by Kodak will be cheaper - so where does it leave them?

These are the people we will need come the day that Kodak finally pull the plug ( a long way of hopefully judging by the latest news!)

Perhaps this means that some cameras thought useless will now have a new lease of life?

Well yes, I think you will be searching hard to find a camera that doesnt read 100d.

Yes, however the Bauers (except some of the early models) are notable exceptions. They have no filter notch reading pin. They are 40 and 160 asa with the filter switched out and 25 and 100 asa with the filter switched in. Bugger.
Still its great news for the Canon 514xl.

I have considered for some time what I would do if Kodak released this film and I tried to use it my Minolta D6 which does not have a filter pin. I decided that I can easily make out of balsa wood a film speed adapter that will fit nicely in that little recessed area on the right side of the cartridge. Since bringing the speed down to 100 will require raising the notch. It would be simple if you were to increase the speed because all you would have to do is cut away the extra plastic. In this case you have to create a blockade that does not currently exist on the cartridge.

Great news. I was explaining how to "fool" the exposure meter of the Canon 514XL for 64T to a new super 8 user this week. It will be easier for him to learn and enjoy moviemaking with automatic exposure. Jean

I liked the 100D in Regular 8mm and glad to see Kodak releasing it on Super 8mm. Spectra has had this stock in S8 for a while so I assume they packaged it themselves? Wonder what the cost differential would be between Spectra and Kodak?

I'm exited to hear this. Always preferred 100 over 64 but kind of saved it for those special occasions. Maybe this means more usage = more buying films from kodak, Wittner or others = Good stuff.
