No, Kodak does not produce 100D yet-- they probably never will. Only 64T.
100D requires a strange unorthodox notching system that violates the SMPTE super
 8 notch protocol.
There is no ASA 100 daylight notch size, and it would require some
contortions (and knowledge on the part of the users) to circumvent the two very
different ways they would have to cut the cartridge to set cameras to ASA 100. One
way is complicated and could result in many errors, the second won't work on
many newer cameras.
What's interesting about all of this is the lack of empty cartridges. Just
what's going on?
They've been farming the manufacturing of them out for years,
independently--- and have had major problems lately-- but where are they getting theirs,
and how long is this shortage going to last?

Have you tried buying direct from Kodak? (I'm assuming it's a current
