    Haven’t they stopped selling it? Even in specialty camera shops?

    Kodachrome is no more. Its manufacturing was discontinued in 2009 and its processing ended in 2010. A shame since the picture quality was unsurpassed.

    I wonder if Ansel Adams would have used a digital camera.

    You can still get film if you need it.

    I miss Kodachrome 25. I recently transferred about two thousand slides I took on my two trips up the Alaska Highway in the eighties. Yeah, most of my shots had to be with a tripod, but wow, what saturation and beauty.

    Somebody has to say it:

    ♪♫Kodachrome
    You give us those nice bright colors
    You give us the greens of summers
    Makes you think all the world’s a sunny day, oh yeah!
    I got a Nikon camera
    I love to take a photograph
    So Mama, don’t take my Kodachrome away
    ♪♫

    I guess even what Kodak is making nowadays can’t come close to what Kodachrome was back in the day, right?

    I like to process my own, so I used Ektachrome and E-6 chemistry.

    I must say, that while I ALWAYS admire the artwork that Mr. Brookins employs in his drawings here on “Pluggers”, I especially like the style shown in the drawing and stance of the film seeking fellow today. Good perspective, good stance, good hat, good moustache… the image tells its own story.

    I think even most pluggers would go to a camera store now.

    Kodachrome only went to 64 ISO. EKTACHROME went to 400!!!!!!!!!

    Let us not forget Ektachrome professional negative, C41 and C prints. There was a great transparency material for exhibition prints, that I think gave us better quality than inkjet on matte film.
