hello guys,

i used to buy my super 8 films from BlueCine Tech because they had the best price i could find in the whole europe...but now their web page seems to be not up to date and all the negative films are out of stock. I tried to send them an e-mail but got no answers...

So, does anybody know a place where i can find Vision3 200T, 500T and possibly 50D for the same reasonable price??

thank you!

thanks bill!
that's awsome! very good price indeed!

I've just been informed by BluecineTech that kodak icreased the price massively...so i'm afraid that even this seller you pinted will do the same as BlucineTech, when they order their next batch....

It is said that the insolvency administrators stopped E100D and recalculated Kodak's selling prices. As a result B/W stock (Tri-X) will double (!) in price and negative stock will be sold at higher prices. That's not nice but Super8 and other formats will continue !

I just noticed that the Kodak online store stopped selling film as of October. Too bad!

Especially with Orwo-54 being readily available and already a few bucks cheaper than tri-x. Not looking good!

I just reviewed Kodak's most recent pricing. They basically upped the price of tri-x by 10% (for each available format). That was done back in December. I doubt they would increase in December and then again just a few months later. So, I think that's the increase. That's not horrible and definitely not double.

If I could buy Tri-X at anything near the sterling equivalent of $13.50 I might make some films again. It's double that here.

i did try a couple of years ago...but they said they couldn't sell to non professionals...i was kind offended aswell.
that time i was looking for 16mm film...after kodak i rang up fujifilm italian's office and they were well pleased to halp me! They offered me the best price i could find, also when i recived the pack i saw they gave me an extra 400ft roll for free! ...so sad they're quitting the busines...

You might want to give them another try. Also, if you start an official business, no matter how small, at least the US one is very helpful. My wedding film business is fledgling and probably never going to be big. But, it's officially registered with my city and I have a website, so Kodak gave me a business account. Again, not sure if they work the same way in Europe, but the US sales people were great!

My daughter just placed an order with Kodak today (1(800)621-3456) for some 16mm Tri-X reversal in 100' loads.
With her student discount she paid $18.34 a roll.
Kodak still gives students a great discount!

It's a few years ago now (I swapped to the much more friendly Fuji), but Kodak UK used to sell directly to the public as well if you contacted their office.
I can't remember what I ordered now, but it wouldn't have been a large order.

yeah, apparently kodak sells directly everywher but in italy...fuji is indeed much more friendly, but they are quitting the motion picture business in a few months and they do not sell super8...i might as well want to try and ring up kodak UK...i just don't know anymore, i feel like i'm loosing all my enthusiasm...

I understand that Kodak UK now has a minimum order of around £400, a smaller order incurs a surcharge.
