Kodak to Retire Kodachrome, Its Oldest Color Film Stock – NYTimes.com

Kodak to Retire Kodachrome, Its Oldest Color Film Stock – NYTimes.com.

I rarely used slide film back in the days when I used film. I think the last time was when I took a Photoshop Class at De Anza College and the instructor asked us to use it for one project. I had to resurrect my trusty Canon A-1 for the purpose. Happy days.

Nevertheless I cannot help but feel a bit sad at the passing of an era. I wonder if Kodak could have sold the intellectual property and equipment to a small company who’d continue the product in a lower overhead environment.
