I searched and didn't find a thread on this piece. The last roll of Kodachrome produced by Eastman Kodak has been processed.

Here's the story: Last Kodachrome roll processed in Parsons (external link)

End of an era!

Yes, Parsons is still developing until December. The article was specifically about the LAST roll of Kodachrome produced by Eastman Kodak has been shot & processed. Did you read the article?

I'm on my last four rolls of Kodachrome in 35mm. I have three rolls of 120, but Dwayne's can't process them. Bummer.

It is sad, all the fun times I had shooting Kodachrome brings back some good memories. Closest I have to shooting Kodachrome today is trying to convert all my slides to digital.


Remember, Stressed spelled backward is Desserts.:)

Did ya know ...
Kodachrome came out same year as Agfacolor {1935}.
The first Afgacolor was color slide film and latter "color" came to be known as
color neg film while "chrome" came to be known as slide film.
Also the slow 25 ASA Kodachrome is similar in res to a 20 MP FF DSLR.

I shot a few rolls of Kodachrome 64 back in the 70's, I also liked Ektachrome 160 for gigs...

Sad day :(

I don't know. Fujichrome Velvia is really nice - I don't see much difference compared to Kodachrome.

Kodachrome 25 especially was the most neutral of all the transparency films. 64 was also good but Kodachrome 25 was the standard. Allot of the E-6 films punch up color. Also Kodachrome didn't have dye couplers like all E 6 type transparency films. That means the emulsion layers were thiner, less light scattering around, thus allowing for a sharper image. And Kodachome was considered archival. None of the E 6 process are archival though they have gotten a little better over the years.
