UPDATE 03: Updated pricing of US$9.99/$49.95 for 1x/5x 120 rolls and $39.95 per box of 4×5 has been provided by the Film Photography Project and US$9.55 for 1×120 roll at the Find Lab.

UPDATE 02: Pricing of US$18/£13.50 for 1×120 roll has been provided by Analogue Wonderland. This may be subject to variations on other websites, as Kodak Alaris does not set MRSP. Preorders are open for worldwide shipping. Stock expected worldwide within the next 10 days.

UPDATE 01: Both formats should be available for consumer orders in 10 days, worldwide. 120 format E100 is coated on 3.94 mil Kodak ESTAR. E100 sheet film is coated on 7 mil ESTAR, as all other Kodak sheet films.

Further details now on the global Kodak Alaris website.


According to a press release published today by Kodak Alaris Japan, Kodak EKTACHROME E100 will be released this winter. The press release states that the film will be available in both 5x 120 roll pro packs and 4×5 sheet film (10 sheets).

There is no word on availability or a consumer price point at this time, although the press release states that preorders will be open soon – which assumes preorders for dealer channels, as opposed to consumers.

There is no word as to availability in Europe, although it is my opinion that formal word from Alaris in the US and EU is not far behind.

  1. Well, although it is really nice seeing a film being resurrected……………..big deal is all I can say! I have found E100 in 35mm size to be simply too anaemic for my taste. However, if you use a Cokin Blue/Yellow polariser, you can get much better bolder and saturated colours that make it look like the film they should have brought back – Extra Colour or VS – I loved both and miss them terribly. Kodak EC and VS whites were white – not tinted white like Velvia 50.

    I continue to live in hope about EC and VS.
