    Last I heard, you could but it was a $30,000 minimum order.

    Back in the 1990's special orders for sheet film such as Super XX and Tri X from Kodak were not uncommon but the minimum volume and prices were quite high. In 2009 I was able to get Kodak to cut T Max 400 in a range of ULF sizes. The caveat was it required the acquisition of a master roll which was just about six figures. We were able to pull it off although Kodak's inability to size boxes appropriately (8x20 of 7x17 being sent across the globe in a 20x24 box) but that is what happened. Bottom line is Kodak is not the same company they once were and Keith Canham is who took the reins on this operation with the new Aleris owners and he is your best option.

    I tried to arrange a master roll sale at one point to a company that had experience cutting, notching, boxing and shipping sheet film worldwide
    but EK/KA (then and now ) wanted no part of it. Good luck !

    I've ordered 400 foot rolls of 35mm Eastman 5222 Double-X B&W from Eastman in NYC. They take VISA

    Eastman motion picture film is marketed by Eastman Kodak and can be ordered directly from EK through their website or by phone. Kodak still picture film is marketed by Kodak Alaris and must be ordered through a dealer.

    that's for boxed and packaged by them but to let someone else do it they ourright refused ... would have been a "boon" to ULF, LF, odd sized sheet film and huge pinhole users.
