Kodachrome Movie Film Returns, Sort Of
By James Grahame
I ran a piece about the cancellation of Kodachrome Super 8 movie film in early June. It was officially deleted from the Kodak product catalog in July and is getting hard to find even at specialist retailers. Many amateurs preferred the look of Kodachrome and the ability to project their work.
Wittner Kinotechnik in Hamburg announced this week that they'll be marketing Wittnerchrome 40T, a house-branded version of the classic Kodak stock. Wittner estimates they have enough to meet worldwide demand for at least a year. From the photo, it looks like it will be loaded in genuine Kodak cartridges. There are plans to offer Kodak's Ektachrome 100D film in a similar format. Get it while you can!
Price and availability TBA.
