This is the very stuff I need to purchase. I called Kodak here in the US quoting the 7983 number and the person taking the order could not locate it in their catalog. Tech help out to long lunch, so I am waiting for.....I don't know what exactly...
Do you by any chance have more numbers I can lob at them? Or a name of product they can recognize?
It is a long time since I bought it and it seems all has changed in the interim.
Hope all is well with you

Kodak 7983 is a black-coated, single perf 16mm film that has the same
characteristics as light-struck film. It can be bleached to clear,
but that removes everything.
You have to buy 2 x 2000 foot rolls (a lifetime's supply!) , but it's
relatively cheap: £120, or about $240 in north America,
