    The way I see it, there is no greater compliment to the true Kodak of old than this ongoing loyalty to its most famous progeny. These threads about Kodachrome—years now since its death—speak volumes about the good will people still feel toward Kodak and that product.

    Kodak was an integral part of American life. Photographs of amazing people and places on Kodachrome by National Geographic. Photographs of amazing Little League baseball players on Kodachrome by my late father. And everything in between. For generations.

    I was out doing fall colors again this year like everyone else. I do it just for the sheer relaxation of driving around and looking. I was using Provia 100F. A very nice film. Finer grain than Kodachrome. Better scanning than Kodachrome. Insanely easier processing than Kodachrome. And undeniably beautiful results.

    But it wasn't the same. Nor will it ever be.

    What's phase detection?

    It's what parents use to try to figure out why their teenager is acting so weird.
    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.

    A function of a Multi Meter?

    Phase-detection auto-focus. Needs a mirror box.
    As opposed to
    Contrast-detection auto-focus. Doesn't need a mirror box. Certain non-film cameras use it. Generally slower and less reliable than phase-detection.

    AF film SRL all use phase-detection I suppose. I might be wrong.

    Just remember to set phasers to 'stun'.

    And practically all AF-finder film-cameras used the contrast detection (either in the active or passive version).

    Ken, you are right. But only in this sense... Look at the threads and out of the 60,000 or so members of APUG, only the same 10 - 20 people are posting. So the people posting are avid Kodachrome users, but in the broad sense the customer base has vanished and there are few true users. In fact, the most avid will still not pay the price projected here in APUG for a roll to be developed, and yet i feel that is the true cost now. Once you realize that Kodak was approaching that price limit, (ie. No profit) then you realize that there is no avid customer base, at least not one much bigger than the people here and there like us posting on APUG.
