    Do you take that view with every historic event?

    Actually, I have already moved on, to B&W, C-41, MF (and even digital for some things.... ).

    I've had a great year with K-14, it's demise made me make the effort to go to shoot many places, events and subjects, and to enjoy two extra holidays, which I might not have done otherwise. How about you?

    We do live with it. Living with 'it' (and adapting to change) seems to me one of APUGs defining characteristics. Bloody nora mate! If the folks of APUGland want to commemorate the end of an era, let 'em do so.

    It's not over till I get my last slides back from Dwayne's. Then I will mourn and at last move on.

    I'm curious what will happen to Dwayne's once their Kodachrome business is gone. They'll be just another e6 and c41 lab now.

    Perhaps it's a bigger, wider world than you realize. And not everyone in that world thinks or feels exactly like you do. It's always dangerous to be telling others just what their thoughts and feelings and actions should be...

    It's appropriate to commemorate the passing of Kodachrome. I have used and preferred Kodachrome since I was 18. I am now over three times that age, and until now it was always there. I can't do today what I could yesterday, what I have been enjoying for over 2/3rds of my lifetime, almost 1/2 the lifetime of Kodachrome itself. Kodachrome is one of the most significant photographic products ever created. For over 50 years nothing else came close to it. It is absolutely the end of an era. It is a loss, and I am sad about it.

    As others have said, no one is making you read this thread. If you can't understand, fine. But your comments and attitude only make it less likely that anything you say will be taken seriously. A little respect goes a long way. With a little more maturity maybe you will be able to see better why people have a need to talk about the passing of an iconic product, especially one that was so good it endured for 75 years. In this era of throwaway obsolescence, that is in itself something to commemorate.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Maybe the disc & 126 business will keep them going. Given the way the E-6 business is going, maybe they'll be the last for that, too.

    got these factoids from a cbc.ca article. wonder how many rolls this actually translates to....

    "In the last couple of days, we've got 500 packages from Federal Express, 250 from UPS, and probably 18 to 20 bags of mail from the post office."

    The Times piece said that much of their business is digital but the less said about that the better. They still process movie film and that isn't so common so I think I'll be using them in the future.
