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

We have two 4x5 camera systems, one a Sinar, and a full Hasselblad system, along with a 4x5 computerized enlarger. All gathering dust.

We haven't used them in years either.

(Want to buy a few gross of excellent buggy whips?)

Re: R.I.P. Kodachrome
We have a dry-to-dry Cibachrome processor, also a boat anchor. We could do some good stuff back in the day. Now almost anyone can master the processing with a computer.

But there is still the photo-eye. That's the one thing they haven't computerized yet.

Chavez's fortune was estimated at $2 billion when he died.

He must have been really frugal with the kitchen budget or something.

Spock's role in Star Trek is well known, but what is not so well known is the exercise video he did some years back.

It was titled "Live Long and Perspire."
