Eastman Kodak Company announced today that
Kodak-certified processing of Kodachrome Super 8 film will no longer be
available after August 1, 2006.

This move follows Kodak's announcement on May 6, 2005, that it would exit the
manufacture of Kodachrome Super 8 film. At that time, the company alerted
customers that they would have approximately one year to process their
Kodachrome Super 8 film with Kodak.

Today's announcement sets August 1 as the final date by which customers can
deliver their Kodachrome Super 8 film to Kodak for certified processing. No
Kodak-approved processing will be available after that date for Kodachrome
Super 8 film.

Sales of Kodachrome 16mm film (cat #1402494) will continue, unaffected by this
announcement, although the "processing costs included" option for this film
(cat #5053327) is no longer available.

According to Kim Snyder, general manager and vice president for Image Capture
products, Entertainment Imaging at Eastman Kodak Company, "The rationale to
discontinue Kodachrome Super 8 film was entirely driven by marketplace
dynamics."

Kodak remains committed to providing Super 8 camera users a range of products
and creative choices. As such, Kodak added a new color reversal film to its
Super 8 portfolio last year. An alternative product for Kodachrome users,
KODAK EKTACHROME Film 64T (film code 7280) combines very high-image quality
with excellent color reproduction. KODAK EKTACHROME Film 64T requires E6
processing.
