The End of an Era

Death of Kodachrome belies technological leap it represented - Ars Technica The best photos I ever took were on Kodachrome. A sad day indeed, but it was not a surprise. Only 1 or 2 labs were left to process the slide film.

And before you extol the virtues of your favorite digital camera, consider that a 35mm Kodachrome slide contained about 26 mega-pixels of information. There are digital cameras that can duplicate that, but they aren't for sale at Best Buy. And they aren't cheap.
Kodachrome
They give us those nice bright colors
They 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
