    I think I still have some Ektar 125 and 25 from the previous go-round....

    I think it's available now.

    Bummed about it being only 35mm.
     
  5. I had used the old Ektar 100 around 18 years ago. It was fairly good in it's last inception. Smooth grain and nice color reproduction.

    I haven't been on here in a pretty long time but, that is such a bummer that it's only 35 :(
     
  7. This looks promising. Can't wait to try it out. While I would enjoy upgrading from my D200 to a D700, I think it's pretty cool to upgrade my F100's sensor for $7.00.

  8. I read somewhere that it'll be available in October. :Unsure:

    Thanks for clearing that up. :)
     
  10. Guess what?
    I contacted locak Kodak here and none there knew that. They thought I was talking about the "old" Ektar film..
    "Well, I told them, it's your home plant in US which has sent such news, so I assume it's true.. " .. lots of evident shame on the other side of the phone... After a few phone calls they told me they will have more details about that during Photokina but not to expect anything at least until the beginning of 2009.

    I was fortunate enough to attend photokina in germany, I spoke to a kodak guy and he said the new ektar should start shipping sometime during late oct / early november.

    I scored a sample roll, so I'll try to shoot it ASAP and post it here for all of you :)

    Apparently the saturation should be higher than portra VC, grain much finer and around the same sharpness. We'll see.... :)
