No more Kodachrome?

Yes friends, it looks like Kodak is no longer printing Kodachrome, the film that makes those awesome slides your parents probably tried to show you, with no confirmation as to whether or not they will make more. I am saddened by this news, only because, like records, while Kodachrome may seem outdated, the pictures my parents took back in the 70s of Mexico and other exotic locales are still in excellent shape today. People insist that digital is a better way of storing photo data, but it was still nice to know there was an analogue back-up option.

One thought on “No more Kodachrome?

  1. K-64 is still being sold at mail order stores. Dwaynes photo in Kansas is still processing the film. Walmart will be happy to send your film there. I’m planning to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the product line in 2010 by shooting and processing a few rolls.
