Does anyone know if Kodak, and Fuji are still developing new emulsions that will replace eterna, and vision 2 in the future?

Nope, they're all throwing in the towel and getting out of the business.


:D

Seriously, it's an ever-evolving technology. But it may be several years before the current product lines become obsolete.

Kodak's newest: 52/7299

All I can say is that Kodak continues to invest millions of dollars into motion picture FILM R&D programs. As to the details of what new films are "in the pipeline", time will tell, I won't. ;)

In the last few years, Kodak has introduced quite a few new films (7218, 7217, 7212, 7205, 7201, 7229, 7299, 7266, 7265) and made improvements to others:

This summer, Kodak VISION Color Print film is being improved to have even better durability in theatres.

I predict a battle between the next line of Kodak stocks and Jim's new Murdoch VW8000 camera :P

You can already tow a small car with Estar base print films! Good to hear though.

A generation of non-printable grainless flat-looking DI-only films perhapse?

If they can't make HD like film, they'll make film like HD :)

Hey, here's a novel idea - how about CHEAP film, so I don't have to fight tooth and nails just to get 16mm these days?
