Kodak has just killed three slide films, namely:

  • Kodak Professional Ektachrome E100G
  • Kodak Professional Ektachrome E100VS
  • Kodak Professional Elite Chrome Extra Color 100

Figures. I actually liked E100G.

A sad day that was. The company that started it all...

I just realized how great the Ektachromes where (I'm a newish photographer) for color when scanned right, bought 20 rolls of VS and G for a vacation, came home (luckily only shooting 8 rolls) and read this news. I guess an M9 is in my future...

Yeah, definitely a downer. I have a ton of Kodak slide in the fridge in both 135 and 120. I might have to select film for shooting more judiciously going forward. ;)

As long as there's an alternative - while the situation sucks, at least it hasn't reached The End yet. I love slide film (especially Velvia, honestly) and scanning it doesn't get easier.

Wow, those are gorgeous shots.

B&H and Freestyle are already tapped out on the 120 sizes...

I ordered from Adorama last night, just looked at it and the VS in 135 is now $10.50 and 120 sold out, but the E100G is still the same price and available only in 120 and 135—4x5 and 8x10 all gone...
