    R.I.P. to one of my least favorite films, but certainly the classic transparency film.

    That doctor who still has 400 unexposed rolls makes me mad. I guess when you make that kind of money, $4,500 spent on wasted film is nothing. What gets me is how many people were trying to get their hands on this stuff at any cost over the past year while those rolls sat there, never to be used. If the guy wasn't going to shoot it, he should have sold it. He would have made his money back too. Bad call.

    If the machine is going to be sold for scrap, I'd sure love to buy a small piece of it!

    Why isn't The Kodachrome Processing equipment being donated to The Smithsonian Institute, or The George Eastman House ?

    So would I!

    Surely it should be preserved, though?

    To answer a question some people have been asking:

    In the end, it was determined that a roll belonging to Dwayne Steinle, the owner, would be last. It took three tries to find a camera that worked. And over the course of the week he fired off shots of his house, his family and downtown Parsons. The last frame is already planned for Thursday, a picture of all the employees standing in front of Dwayne’s wearing shirts with the epitaph: “The best slide and movie film in history is now officially retired. Kodachrome: 1935-2010.”

    Steve.
