Kodak to Release New Super 8 Film Next Year

2012-12-14 3

Analogue filmmakers now have a reason to look forward to 2013 – Kodak released earlier this week that one of their color negative films will be available in Super 8 format by January 2013.

The color negative film, Kodak VISION3 50D, is a “low-speed color negative optimized for capturing images in natural or simulated daylight conditions.” It was introduced in 35mm and 16mm formats last year, and will be available on Super 8 format early next year.

“There are a wide range of Super 8 users around the globe, and this gives them another stock for their toolbox,” says Kodak’s Mike Ryan, director of film technology for the Entertainment Imaging Division. “Now filmmakers turning to the small gauge format can take advantage of the finest grain motion picture technology on the market to craft the distinctive look they desire from a film captured image.” — Kodak Press Release

    That's amazing. I figured movie film, especially in the small formats, was dead. Wish they'd release it in Double-8 also. Then I could use my Bolex H8 again. I love that camera. Would be the Lomo camera of the movie world.
