Does anybody know of a place which deals in 7285 100ft rolls in the uk? Widescreen center and a couple of others seem to stock only 400ft of it...

Hey Damien,

I'm assuming that you require for 16 or 35mm.
If so, I don't think that anywhere, apart from a private S/E, will sell or stock 100ft of any stock.
I could be wrong but I certainly have not heard of any place that does that in London........

If in your position I would have a chat with Kodak.....

Good luck!

I think you'll find that Kodak UK don't import/handle 100D in 100ft spools, only 400ft.

As such I think you'll find retailers in the UK will be unable to supply it unless they buy from overseas and have it shipped here themselves. There may be one or two small specialists who deal mainly with the home movie market who go to that bother, but I'm not aware of any.

I just came across this thread. I really must keep a better eye on the London Communities section.

I thought it might be of interest if I said that I emailed Kodak UK on the issue of the non-availability of Kodak 7285 on 100ft rolls a month or so ago and I thought my request was not at all unreasonable. I suppose it might be said that I would say that, however.

I set out below the content of the message I sent:

"Sunday, October 11, 2009 6:11 PM
Subject: Ektachrome 100D (7285) on 100ft rolls

Please can you explain to me why it is that I am not able to purchase Ektachrome 100D 16mm colour reversal film on 100ft rolls in the United Kingdom.

Many 16mm cine cameras are limited to 100 ft rolls, and your company produces a variety of negative stocks in 100ft lengths. However, not all of us wish to use negative stock and prefer a reversal stock.

This stock is available in 100ft lengths in the USA and in Germany, but every supplier I have approached here claims that they are not able to supply it in 100ft lengths simply because your company will not make it available here. You will know that it is possible to purchase 400ft rolls, but as I say many cameras can only accept 100ft rolls.

It is clear that your Company does produce 100ft rolls because it is supplies the stock to suppliers in other Countries. To force British customers to go to the trouble and expense (not to mention the general inconvenience) of importing the stock seems be be not only most unfair but it is an obstacle in the way of those who still prefer to use film. Is it really asking too much that a product which is available in other Countries be made available here? Even supplying through a single retailer would be very welcome, and it would mean that a very high quality product would be more easily obtainable here.

I hope you will take the trouble to reply to this email.".

I did not get any response, but I have reminded the Company that I am awaiting a reply.

It will be interesting to see if the wait is worth it.
