It was a lucky find by a UK third party who distributed it and it was one to each. I guess it is all gone.

6K?! Was that because they required a minimum order? Will you start a business selling it? Or is it to make a feature film using many cameras?

That was minimum order. It's in the freezer at -15f for now.

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?

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.

Yes, I have a pretty large inventory of Regular 8 TXR now. I'm going to have Fotokem do a couple test prints with the 3383, then I'll decide what to do next.

Thanks
