Regrettably, NFL fims has decided to switch completely to digital production and have chosen the new digital Arriflex Amira as their new go to camera system. Up until recently they were Kodak's biggest customer of 16mm film stock. They have over 100 million feet of 16mm film in their archives predominately shot with the legendary Photo-Sonics Actionmaster 500 camera (24-500fps). I have yet to test mine, i.e. http://www.highspeed...e/16_am500.html

Here is the article in the New York Times, i.e. 
http://www.nytimes.c...gital.html?_r=1

"Within the headquarters of NFL Films in Mount Laurel, N.J., resides more than 100 million feet of film stored in tens of thousands of metal canisters."

NFL Films will never be the same or as good.
