Following the limited shipments it initiated in August, Kodak Alaris is now shipping its new Ektachrome film products to global stock house dealers and distributors, the company announced on Tuesday. It's currently shipping the Ektachrome Film E100 product, which will initially be available in the 135/36x camera format.
Starting on October 1, Eastman Kodak Company will also offer the Ektachrome 7294 Color Reversal Film in Super 8 format. Additional Ektachrome film products in 16mm format will be available later this year. According to Kodak, both the Ektachrome 7294 Color Reversal Film and E100 feature "extremely fine grain," as well as a neutral tone scale and "clean, vibrant colors." Prices weren't provided.
Ektachrome was officially discontinued in 2012, but a resurgence in analog photography has prompted the company to bring back some of its film products. Kodak Alaris had announced plans to resurrect Ektachrome during CES 2017. Soon after, the company also revealed plans to bring back the Kodak T-Max P3200 high-speed black and white film, that having also been discontinued in 2012.
