Following on from the news about the release of Pancro400 and the announcement that Kodak are planning to re-release their Ektachrome slide film, I wondered just how many actual photographic films, suitable for 35mm point and shoot film cameras, there are currently in production?

It’s hard to keep up to date with which 135 camera photographic films are still being manufactured, or are otherwise¬†currently available. Film availability can vary from country to country and sometimes accurate information is hard to clarify, or is out of date. In addition, sometimes well known photo film brands are repackaged and sold under different brand names. Also, old stocks of some film brands are occasionally held in stock and sold for some time after film companies have announced that they have discontinued producing a particular film.

Nevertheless, I decided to pull together a quick and cheerful list of current film still being made. That being the case, what follows is very much a non-definitive and incomplete list of available camera films which are still being produced in 35mm format. There are over 30 film products here, which is not bad going considering we are so far into the digital age.

For additional simplicity, the list focuses exclusively on dedicated still camera films which are manufactured, predominantly, by the three major camera film producers, Kodak, Fujifilm and Ilford, plus a couple of other companies. Unfortunately, this leaves out some interesting products, for example Eastman Double-X 5222 and Cinestill, which are essentially repurposed movie films, as well as some smaller, niche, or specialist film products and companies.
