I ordered a roll of Ektachrome earlier in the week and it arrived from the Kodak store yesterday. If you visit this link you will see that 100D is on back order. https://www.kodak.com/web/product/index?id=5233761800
With that in mind I'd say the film is selling quite well. Or at least that's how I see it with the back order in place.

I could reach Kodak's order page but it's still "US only". I noticed that orders are limited to 5 cartriges per customer and it seems that the first batch is still sold out so that's maybe a good new regarding the interest for super 8.

I would assume Kodak set the 5 carts per order so more people here in the US could buy some during it's first week of release. A day or so after I bought a cart it was on back order. Let's hope the price comes down a bit after this first round. The film has been heavily promoted so I'm not surprised it sold out so fast. Would be interesting to know how many carts were produced in that first batch.

Fellow forum member Pat and Larry from VideoStation called in yesterday with some Super 8 film transfer that was taken at the cinema. The original film was shot on Ektachrome 64T. The quality of the original film is not that great, however Larry did a really good video transfer, considering the source.

I did an edit on "Moviemaker" last night and added some copyright free music to it.... this is the results [Smile]

With summer just round the corner I hope at the very least to get a couple of rolls of this slide film for my Canon FTB.

Its been about four years now since I last took Kodak film, and certainly looking forward to seeing the results.

By the way, apart from the not so good quality of the film I took, I also had the opportunity to include around 50 min on a 800ft reel of home movies of the Commonwealth 1974 games, that were found in a box at the heritage park I doubt have never seen daylight since they were first taken. It took me a while to join all the 50ft reels in some sort of order, but the results of the transfer so far looks great.

A lot of interesting history captured in excellent color footage....by the way remember when you used to get film transferred to VHS.. well this is how it came yesterday... [Cool]

Still not available in Europe. The American company "Film Forever" charges $ 60 to ship a super 8 cartrige to Belgium. More expensive than the film itself !

I heard from Dwayne's today. They say that they are trying to stock up on the new Super 8 Ektachrome, and they will definitely be providing processing for it.

I now have my first roll of the E100 Ektachrome slide film (arrived just now), so will shoot that over coming days! I now await the Super 8 version, hopefully arriving with UK dealers soon...

Ferannia film were beaten by Kodak who pulled this project off in about 18 months. Ferannia have taken over four years and we who crowd-funded it have nothing. Shame on you Ferannia. You ain't heard the last of this though...

Simon, I feel sorry for everyone who contributed money to Ferrania - they deserved better. Seems to me that Ferrania just took the money and ran.

Moving forward, I’m certain dealers will be selling for less.

These were the first dealers to sell it here in the UK.

But there is cost and value. The film is costly, but the value of having images on film forever. Priceless.

I agree Simon, but once over £50 all in and possibly very well over there has to be some coffee smelling.

Saying that we don`t do a lot of that in the cine world.

Best Mark.
