The big news was the whipping 119% gain in Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:KODK) after the company announced it would use blockchain technology to help photographers secure their digital rights. ......financial newsfeed 1/9/18 Big money believes Kodak has a bright future.
This clip above shows kodak shares skyrocketing and a super 8 camera pictured! I hope this little nuance is meaningful to kodaks future, but anything related to the bitcoin type systems is RISKY FRAGILE!
On one of the Facebook pages, I understand the film was on display at Kodak CES 2018. There is also talk, the film will be for sale around April 2018 ...I do hope so. It might be time to dust of those old Super8 cameras ...here is hoping the electronics etc in them still go

Can they make it affordable?. I liked the Kodachrome because it was process paid; the Ektachrome you could take to any photographic dealer to be processed, but doubt this would be the case today. You would probably have to send it to a specialist lab. Would love to be able to shoot Super 8 again.

They do! All of their pricings are available at dwaynesphoto.com/. Only do E-6 movie processing at this point (no B&W, no negative). It's pricey, but they have Wittnerchrome 200D reversal in three gauges! Plus E-6 slides and B&W or color print processing. My experiences with them in the 2000s were exemplary, only surpassed in quality and customer service by Yale Film and Video.
At $56 now per 50 feet, I'm glad I shot family movies when I did a decade ago. It was half the cost then.
