I don't think they give discounts for larger orders, but will do special orders for larger minimal quantities. I heard they will sell 35mm rolls of unperfed Ektachrome with a minimum order of $30,000. Maybe places like Spectra, John Schwind, or Wittner will order and perf 16mm, DS8, or R8?

Anything like this is welcome.  However I'm sure there's a market for 16mm Ektachrome directly manufactured by Kodak, and it'll be obviously cheaper.  As for R8, it would be fairly easy for other people to reperforate and resell.  Not possible for DS8, but how many use this format ?

 

Looking forward so much for the new Ektachrome :rolleyes:

DS8 has been without a color film since 2012. I sold my DS8 Scoopic because all you can get are Orwo or Ilford B&W stocks. A lot of hungry DS8 cameras sitting in people hands out there for some color film. If the new Ekta lives up to it's expectations, 16mm would be out of this world. I think they are playing it safe by letting independents cut and perf other formats. If bulk orders start churning out substantial 16mm or DS8 to the market, Kodak may follow suit and package it themselves?

The online store prices have been updated. Darn it. I didn't see this coming, but 16mm Tri-X went from $38 to $44. I thought only Super 8 was going up in price so I didn't stock up. Infuriating.

 

This is a major price hike. I have no idea how they think they'll keep people buying film.

In an ironic way these increases help people like Ferrania and Foma. But for small filmshooters any increase is obviously bad. I hope Kodak isn't under an illusion that analogue's current return is stronger than reality.

In theory Kodak will sell you an entire master roll (54" by 2000') of a single emulsion and slit and perforate it any way you want. I reckon that would be about 170,000' of 16mm.
