Kodak: All Slide Films Are Now Gone

Citing a decline in demand, Kodak has announced that it will discontinue Kodak Professional Ektachrome E100G, Kodak Professional Ektachrome E100VS, and Kodak Professional Elite Chrome Extra Color 100.

Existing stocks are expected to last another six to nine months, depending on demand.

Slide (transparency) films have accounted for only a single-digit percentage of color film production for many decades. The announcement does not affect Portra or Ektar color negative films, or the remaining Kodak black-and-white films.
