Looks like Kodak wants us to get excited. Here's a video of the assembly line for 50D.

Sadly, I don't think that will happen. Have you tried this one:

They claim it to be a Plus-X alternative. I bet it's either Foma or Orwo.

I don't either. Been wanting to try Orwo, but haven't haven't had the chance. I'm still re-purchasing accessories for my Arri S/B. Most of my stuff was lost in Hurricane sandy when my basement was flooded.

Not on the specific items, no. The two biggest losses were my Steenbeck ST-900W and Nagra 4.2... :(

Ouch!

On a good note, I've seen reviews that equate the ADOX Pan-X 100 Super 8 to Plus-X. I think you should check it out!

Hi David,

ADOX are still an emulsion manufacturing company. The film is actually ADOX made. Some of the ADOX range was being made by the Croatian company that made EFKE film, notably the so-called 'art' emulsions ADOX sold. But the 100 speed is made by them.
And what is more, they are loading it into the GK film cartridge, rather than the Kodak cartridge.
I have 40 on order.
cheers,
richard

Can it be purchased in the USA? And does anyone know if US labs process it correctly?
Thanks
