HIE and EIR films to be discontinued

"It had only to be a matter of time before Kodak cleared the infra-red films out of the inventory, and the cut off date for obtaining supplies is set as the end of May '07. Both black and white HIE and the false-colour Ektachrome Infra-red are to be discontinued. While many photo materials have been dropped by Kodak, infra-red has a unique place, and there is no direct replacement from any other manufacturer for either of these materials, especially the colour EIR. Depending on perceived demand we may try to stockpile to some extent, but as the EIR at least will need to be deep frozen, the amount we can store will be limited."
