Kodak stops Kodachrome film production


It’s a sad day, film fans. Kodak will retire its Kodachrome film, citing, um, its near commercial relevance. Sales of Kodachrome film only account for 1 percent of still-photo (that is, not including movie film and all the digital equipment) sales.

And thank God for the AP, reminding us that Paul Simon song. I don’t know who Paul Simon is, but that’s OK.

There’s only one lab on Earth that still processes Kodachrome.

There’s one famous photo that I guarantee you’ve seen that was shot using Kodachrome:

I don’t know, I think using film is more fun than shooting digital, largely because it’s so anachronistic.

I suggest looking through Flickrfor fun Kodachrome photos.
