So Wittner has announced the following statement about E100D & Velvia:
"This week, the reproduction of the Wittner Chrome 100D takes place in Super 8. We expect stock availability by the end of next week. We have arrived at this product for batch 4 of 6, ie the half-time of our Ektachrome 100D material stocks is exceeded. The emulsion of the current production now comes from our penultimate purchase of materials. Unfortunately, this was already markedly changed conditions rather than before. We ask for your understanding that we therefore need to adjust the selling price of this product accordingly. As a low-cost alternative is to continue the Wittner Chrome 200D cassette available. The holdings by the Wittner sweets: Velvia 100 are now completely sold out. Here, there are no plans for a renewal edition. After the sell-out of the last premium product (Wittner Chrome 100D) then it must be checked whether it ever again can be a product of this quality and price range for the cine field or should."
The above signifies the real end of E100D & Velvia. Depending on how much the price gets increased will influence whether or not Gauge Film continues to sell E100D. Truth be told we sell very few E100D carts now because of its high cost (and that's with process & telecine deals). It's also a great shame to see the Velvia go. It was a great stock and I'm not sure why Wittner haven't renewed it? Thankfully we are left with 200D in the meantime but I really hope Farrania moves quickly with there 8mm stock so we have a little more colour reversal selection in the coming months!
