Hi, just clocked this on the kodachrome project forum
http://www.kodachrom...hread.php?t=526

appears kodak has axed 64t, this surely must have a knock on effect to super 8 64t!!

Hi Andy, thanks for the news!

I havn't heard anything of a potential S8 E-64 axing.

I agree with you that the discontinuation of E-64 in photo products could spell a further step close to E-64 for Super 8 becoming an end-of-lifetime product, but I am not sure to what extent the emulsion is 100% identical.

Do you have any codes?

No sorry don't have any codes, pretty sure 64t was reperfed and lubicated etc for super 8 use, from the stills version of 64t. I wonder is kodak will put any cash into giving us a replacement for 64t once supplies are exhausted. ( just hope its not 100d )

Geez forchrissake! I just got into the hobby and have spent many $ on getting set up. Are there any other alternatives if it goes away?? I've heard about Fuji Velvia. Is this a current stock or are we just finding it here and there on flea bay?

I know opinions are like ass*****, but I think Fuji Velvia 50D is far better looking than 64T. When people call it DisneyChrome, it seems like a cut, but who wants stale colors?. The colors are far warmer and breath taking than 64T.

I love Kodak products, but for color reversal Fuji 50D is the way to go. Unless they bring back 7240.

There is Fuji Velvia in Double Super 8 for Scoopic and Bolex RX4 DS8 on 100ft spool.

Each to his own, i've exposed Circushrome, nice and sharp, bit too jittery for me, some people like 64t as it gives one a more grainy super 8 look ( yes i was anti 64t at first ). However reperfed 50d in my experiance does not transport well thru my super 8 cameras, or my 16mm SR2. For that reason, i stick to kodak perfed products. I agree 50d is the way to go in reversal film, i just wished fuji would perf and optimize the film for MP work....

If you aren't happy with the Velvia 50D you can always get the 100D from Spectra (and I think Pro 8mm as well)...

I think there's nothing bad in this for today.
Or maybe you need the 64T for your 35mm or M-format? :)

Surely there can be a risk of Super-8 E64T discontinuation but I don't think that Super-8 will end on this.

dito on that. the end of 64t in the line of still film products is a very different thing to the end of 64t in super 8. If sales of super 8 64t get to fall as low as the sales of 35mm+ still film 64t has before it goes to the wall, then it will be around for a long time.

Since they derived S8 64T from the slide film a few years back, I'm sure it will be going out along with it too. And thank God... it was a mistake to offer it in the first place, since 100D looks 10 times better in S8 and will meter accurate in all S8 cameras. I'm pretty sure they will replace 64T with E100D finally too. That would really give the format a boost. It will help keep the stock alive too, as it is awsome to shoot in 35mm stills, 16mm MP, and 35mm MP. The thought of getting fresh clean carts of E100D straight from Kodak at normal prices make my mouth water... Bye Bye 64T

BTW, the only pro slide films left are the E100VS (the current 100D) VS for "very saturated", E100G for "fine grain" and a E200 that is daylight balanced.

I was looking at Filmshooting.com, and a thread there said they were going to do away with 100d as well.
I am a frugal ( read cheap) hobbyist who is just learning how to shoot film. If the kodak ends 64t, what is the next el cheapo option up from the direct form the kodak/walmart/dyi telecine routine? Can I telecine negative stocks, and convert it on my mac, or will I have to use a lab that is considerably more than the $25 a cart I am spending now.

It's a different stock than what the 7285 is cut from

That same link announces the discontinuation of 100 Plus, the stills stock. One can't imagine that this is different from 100D, or that the demand for the 16mm. version is greater than that for the still film. Pwerhaps they have stocks of the cine films, so aren't announcing their demise yet.

If E64T stills are done, so is the S8 version, sorry. They are/WERE cut from the same master roll.

Isn't it like saying that because people don't buy rump anymore we are going to do away with the whole cow?
As long as people are still buying T-Bones the cow survives!?!

Read T-bone = S8 64t
& Rump = E64t still
Mad cow disease.....I know :lol:

If you want to use a cow analogy Mike, it is the other way around. . .

The still film was the meat, the S8 stock was the "hair and teeth."
