According to this Q&A page about their new Ektar 100 film, Kodak will discontinue their
Portra Professional Ultra Color 400UC film by the end of 2008.
I don’t shoot much 35mm these days, but I thought it really sucked when they discontinued it in 120 last year, it was great in 6×6 toy cameras.
One clarification: It’s not Portra 400VC that’s being discontinued, it’s “Professional Ultra Color 400UC,” which isn’t in the Portra line and is sold as a consumer film (despite the naming).
See, I’d have been more worried, but then I discovered that I really did like 400NC more…
Colin, you’re right, thanks for catching that! Correction made above.
wirehead arts, I really like the whole re-done Portra line… the new 160VC is my default color film now.
