I used to be a "Paul Simonesque" Kodachrome freak. But I've long ago given up that "dope" and can live with out K64.
What really concerns me is that Dwayne's is now the "forward on" processor for Fujichrome 35mm mailers - of which I have bunch remaining. If their QC is going down the toilet then I am screwed on pre-purchased processing!
Please ask Mr. Steinle (Dad and/or Son) this question: Their Fujichrome pre-paid mailer processing contract started a year ago (July 2006). Is this additional workload what's causing the breakdown in Kodachrome QC?
And as a follow-up:
What is the termination date of their contract to process Fujichrome mailers?
It would be really helpful if we had a hell of a lot more transparency about the remaining availability of "mainstream" film processing!
