Official Word

Heard today from a contact at Kodak that the 400NC film will be discontinued in 8×10. The new Kodak 400 film will be available in 4×5 but no longer an 8×10 size. That leaves Kodak 160 as the only commercially made 8×10 color negative film left.

“And yes, for the new PORTRA 400 film, we will not be offering an 8X10 format…..the decision for doing this was based on sales of the current 400NC 8X10 product, which were very low.  However, this being said, if a dealer wanted to special order 8X10 format of the new Portra 400 film , we would certainly fulfill that special order.”

Anyone want to help sponsor the purchase of remaining 400 8×10 and a freezer? 😉

    I suppose we’re going to go through this all over again in a couple of years with 4×5, too. 🙁

    Don’t forget Fuji 160S & Kodak Ektar 100!

    Fuji is done as well in sheet film.

    Is that just in the US? It’s readily available in the UK, I’ve not seen any official discontinuation notices. Damn!
