Thanks.

I found this link to a fact sheet about the SP467 variation of 7266. This means people supplying
Regular 8mm spools from this product need to stock up like John Schwind.

The very beautiful ORWO UN54 is available in 2R 16mm. So this can be perforated to R8 by Edward Nowill. Thank heavens for that.

Does this mean no B&W 16mm film at all from Kodak? Plus-x has been gone awhile and I assumed Tri-X would stick around longer. I'm guessing this "restructuring" is truly the end for them.

Kodak is still selling Double-X and Tri-X in 16mm, what it isn't selling anymore is 2R Tri-X. "2R" is the code for double perf.

Has Kodak discontinued Tri-X reversal completely? Is the one listed for sure what it takes for 8mm? Could people special order the 8mm perforations? Is there anything that can be done?
Pull that old movie camera out of the closet! I'm sure it's hungry for some film!
