Goodbye Kodachrome

All good things must come to an end. This one just took 74 years. Later this year, Kodak is discontinuing production of its original color film - Kodachrome. At EI 25, it was the slowest and best slide film I ever shot. Unfortunately, there were few places to get it processed. Right now it's down to just one.

I can still see work shot by my dad in the forties and fifties that looks great and still has great color. It's hard to say that about most other films.

Nice to know that our digital files will still look just as good 75 years from now. I just wonder what they will be stored on by then - probably something the size of a pin head.
