Today, Kodak is announcing the discontinuance of KODAK EKTACHROME 100D Color Reversal Film 5285/7285. Due to lower sales and limited customer usage, combined with highly complex product formulation and manufacturing processes, it is no longer possible to continue supplying this color reversal film stock to our motion picture customers.

Based on the current sales pace, supplies of the KODAK EKTACHROME 100D Color Reversal Film are expected to be available in the market for the next three to four months; however, inventories may run out before then, depending on demand. Every effort will be made to ensure fair distribution to all customers; therefore, order restrictions may be necessary.
