Kodak 200 ISO 35mm Slide Film

Looks like Kodak killed both their 200 ISO slide films in March, they are down to just these three reversal films now.

KODAK PROFESSIONAL ELITE Chrome Extra Color 100 Film
KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME Film E100G
KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME Film E100VS


Due to significantly decreased sales volumes, Kodak is ceasing production of KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME Film E200. Based on current demand, product is expected to be available in the market through March of 2011.

I use mostly 100 and 400 speed films.
I never use 200 speed film of any type.
Perhaps other consumers have similar buying habits.

That said, it's never a good sign when a film is discontinued...

The Elite Chrome 200 and E200 had superior reciprocity and color stability characteristics in addition to withstanding pushing several stops.

If you needed those traits, it was a superior film. E200 went very deep and could record what the human eye cannot. Used extensively by astrophotographers and star trail enthusiasts.
