At the Photo Marketing Meeting in Las Vegas this year, Kodak introduced a new film. No, that is not a typo. They really did. I’m not joking. In case you don’t believe me the data sheet for Professional Ektar 100 film is available on their web site.
Interestingly, Fuji had no competing product announcement.
Apparently, Kodak will continue to produce photographic film as long as there is a demand for movie film because the same equipment is used to produce both products. How long processing will remain available for traditional photographic films is another question.
I don’t mean to criticize this new film. It may be a fine product. I just don’t use film any more. Has anybody actually tried it?
