Kodak announced in June that they were ceasing production of Kodachrome, their oldest running line of color film. Kodachrome was first introduced in 1935 (seriously… 1935!!), and was the choice of professional photographers worldwide for decades. Although use by professionals has slipped due to the increase in more technically advanced film and the rise of digital photography, there were some photographers still using Kodachrome for the unique color and feel that it provides.
Stockpile what you can now, because when it’s gone, it’s gone. Of course, a couple of generations from now kids will be saying, “what’s film?”
You can check out a tribute to Kodachrome complete with slide show on Kodak’s site.
