Last Call For Kodachrome
You knew it was coming.
Maybe arguably the best film ever, Kodak’s Kodachrome transparency film will be history at the end of 2010. The last processing lab is set to shutdown at end of year.
Widely know as the standard for transparency film, Kodachrome became expendable when better E-6 transparency films came on board such as Fujichrome’s Velvia. The newer E-6 films used much denser and brighter gels to produce dynamic transparencies. I know because i used to take the gels apart, but that’s another story.
