Ektachrome is getting closer…

The news is a few days old now, but Kodak has announced Ektachrome will be sold starting Oct. 1:

Of course it says that it’s already for sale but every place I’ve checked says it’ll be delivered the middle of the month, but the super 8 will be sold right from Kodak’s website on the 1st.  Damn good news. I can’t say that the price excites me ($13 for a roll of 135 film or $40 for a super 8 cartridge) but I still plan on getting some and shooting it.  If you’re interested in seeing some of the first footage shot with this film, check out Ignacio Benedeti’s blog: http://mimundoensuper-8.blogspot.com/2018/09/ferrol-7294-trailer-especial-para-la.html
