Kodachrome Officially Ends

It’s finally happened. Last year it was speculation but Kodachrome is now going out of production.

It was always weird film, wonderful and fine grained but it required a dedicated processing lab, not the “standard” E-6 slide processing that was much more readily available. Kodak is still making slide film, as is Fuji…but the loss of Kodachrome is a blow to those of us who still like film nonetheless.

I bought film today: 10 more rolls to last a while longer. It may be the last batch, but I’m not sure. Although my cost has gone up quite a bit, it’s still cheaper than a Canon 5D.

Expect to hear a lot of Paul Simon lyrics quoted.

If you took all the girls I knew
When I was single
And brought them all together for one night
I know theyd never match
My sweet imagination
And everything looks worse in black and white

Kodachrome
They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the worlds a sunny day, oh yeah
I got a nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama dont take my kodachrome away
