If film photography is a niche market, then Kodachrome is niche of a niche. The K-14 process is a real pain, requiring all kinds of special chemicals and only one lab on the planet handles it anymore. So it's not really surprising that Kodak finally retired the 800 pound gorilla of color film.

Paul Simon sung about it, national parks were named after it and some of the most famous photographers in the world shot with it - and as of noon today Parsons Kansas, the absolutely, positively must-be-there deadline for Dwayne's Photos has come and gone. It's official, momma has taken the Kodachrome away. . . . .

A couple of links about the end of the K14 era:

Beautiful shots there.  And such lousy news for the world at large.

Before I got my DSLR I shot one roll of Kodachrome and got some good images out of it.


It is sad to see it go. What film will Paul Simon sing about now? Fuji Velvia?


Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I will not support anything your company produces until then.
