Re: R.I.P. Kodachrome
what would paul simon say?

I switched to digital a few years ago and have not shot a single roll of film since.

tell me about it. i have a bulk roll of techpan here somewhere, and the chems for it, and i've never used it. i have a roll of original velvia, and two rolls of kodak high-speed infrared in my freezer, and a roll of tmax 3200 that's probably not even good anymore...

That's funny! I have one also, but I shot quite a bit of it back in the day. I had a formula for developer that was very, very fine grain and it was really tricky to develop evenly. Man, I could make huge prints of insects with it!

i've actually never used it. we were talking about it in my history of photo class in college, and i tried to procure some that night only to find it had been discontinued that same day. i came and told my prof, and he said, "oh, here, have a whole bulk roll and the chemistry for it".

I still have my darkroom and enlarger and sink, but my wife turned it into her computer lab.

i'm not giving up my enlarger or film cameras, but i sure haven't used them in at least 5 years.

Photoshop and an Epson printer sure took the tedium out of the process.

yeah, it's way easier and faster. but i dunno. it's missing something, i think.
