I just noticed on Kodak's website that Vision 1 stocks like '77 and '79 are now gone? I must have missed this change. When did this happen? I'm curious as to the reasoning behind this. Did the Vision 1 orders plummet with the release of the newer stocks? Has it become too costly to manufacture so many 500T stocks, for example?

As much as I enjoy the grain structure and flesh reproduction of '18, there was something so snappy and nice about '79. As a matter of fact, a lot of times in telecine, I end up enjoying the new benefits of Vision 2 while "forcing" back some of the characteristics of the Vision 1 stocks.

5277/7277 was discontinued in July. 5279 (35mm) remains available, but 7279 (16mm) is gone.

Yes, the Kodak VISION2 stocks have become the most popular stocks.
