Regrettably, NFL fims has decided to switch completely to digital
production and have purchased 30 new digital Arriflex Amira cameras.
Up until recently they were Kodak's largest customer of 16mm stock for
the last 50 years. They have their own immense state of the art
archive, and lab. Up until recently they were also processing film for
students. They have over 100 million feet of 16mm film in their
archives predominately shot with the legendary Photo-Sonics
Actionmaster 500 camera (24-500fps). I have yet to test mine,

Here is the article from the New York Times, i.e.
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/14/sport ... .html?_r=1

"Within the headquarters of NFL Films in Mount Laurel, N.J., resides
more than 100 million feet of film stored in tens of thousands of
metal canisters."
